Disney’s ‘Frozen: Sing-Along’ Edition on DVD in November with All New Bonus Feature

'Frozen: Sing-Along Edition' on DVDAhead of any official announcement, Disney Store has begun taking pre-orders for a DVD format of the Frozen: Sing-Along edition that enjoyed a theatrical run earlier this year. According to Disney Store, the DVD will be available to own on November 18, 2014.

According to the DVD’s description on the item page, it will include the full theatrical sing-along cut as well as a digital copy of the film. Also promised is an unspecified, ‘never-before-seen’ bonus.

Based on prior experiences with Disney Store, the lack of a Blu-ray version on the site does not preclude one from being available through other retailers as Disney Store has been slow to adopt the Blu-ray format.

Disney Parks Announces Casting Sessions for ‘Big Hero 6′ Hiro Hamada Role

Hiro Hamada from 'Big Hero 6'Just a few hours after officially confirming meet and greet character appearances by Hiro and Baymax from Disney’s upcoming animated feature Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), Disney Parks and Resorts has issued casting call notices to fill the role of Hiro.

Although the characters are expected to begin making in-park appearances beginning in the fall, the casting notices fail to mention approximate start dates for the roles, but also note that all look-a-likes (face characters) are expected to perform meet and greets in full costumes as well, so the start date of the position does not appear to directly reflect that of the Big Hero 6 meet and greets.

‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas,’ ‘Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas’ on Blu-ray in November

'Mickey's Once/Twice Upon A Christmas' on Blu-rayAs we first reported on Twitter last week, ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray edition of ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas‘ with a release date of November 4, 2014. A few days later, Walmart also began listing the title but as a 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo bundle of both ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas’ as well as ‘Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas,’ along with the packaging seen here. It is likely that the Amazon listing is for both titles as well but it has not been updated appropriately.
