Carry-Along Storybook

Very early this year, we reported on a Hollywood Reporter blurb that didn’t seem to catch the eye of most — Disney planned on releasing three Blu-ray 3D titles this year: A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3.

Disney’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ Arrives on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D November 16

Although the insert contained in the Alice in Wonderland Blu-ray/DVD announces A Christmas Carol from director Robert Zemeckis will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack on November 16, it lacks any mention of the Blu-ray 3D version that Disney had promised earlier this year.

Today, however, High-Def Digest reports that the Blu-ray 3D version will in fact be incorporated into a BD 3D/BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack (MSRP $49.99) while a stand-alone Blu-ray version will also be available (MSRP $39.99). Both editions will be available on November 16, 2010.

A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3 to Make Blu-ray 3D Debut in 2010

It will require a 3D capable television and a 3D capable blu-ray player, but The Hollywood Reporter has relayed Disney’s announcement that the newly established Blu-ray 3D standard will be embraced and rushed to market beginning with at least three releases this year (all presumably around the holiday season): A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3. Perhaps it’s too soon, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Disney/Pixar’s UPthrown into the mix shortly thereafter either.

At D23 Expo, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment demo’d a prototype of a 3D home system from Panasonic. The home system, which uses special shutter-oriented glasses to alternate between eyes, almost faithfully recreates the current 3D movie-going experience at home.
