While it’s still far too early to anticipate a release date and additional information about the Blu-ray release of Disney’s Planes (now available for pre-order), thanks to the British Board of Film Classification, we have additional details on what to expect on the Blu-ray in way of bonus features, which we have detailed below.
When The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition debuts on Blu-ray on October 1, 2013, it will include a few new bonus features. In addition to Carly Rae Jepsen’s music video for ‘Part of Your World,’ the Blu-ray will also include ‘Howard’s Lecture,’ ‘Part of Her World: Jodi Benson’s Voyage To New Fantasyland,’ ‘The Real Little Mermaid: Live Action Reference Model,’ Disney Intermission support and a look at deleted character, Harold the Merman.
Thanks to Walt Disney Studios Italy, we get early access to the Harold the Merman deleted character bonus feature, which can be seen here embedded below:
We have been provided with some additional details on the new bonus features that will support on the 50th Anniversary edition of Mary Poppins as it makes its Blu-ray debut on December 10, 2013 (now available for pre-order).
Mary-OKE will highlight popular music from the film, specifically ‘Spoon Full of Sugar,’ ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,’ ‘Step In Time,’ ‘Chim Chim Cher-ee’ and allows viewer to sing-along to animated words that display onscreen in unique ways.
Except that what will be in store hasn’t happened before — at least not like this. On December 10, 2013, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release the beloved 1964 classic, Mary Poppins, on Blu-ray for the first time ever. That would place its release just a few days before Saving Mr. Banks opens in limited release on December 13 and on the same day its soundtrack, with music composed by Thomas Newman, is slated to be released.

With thanks to a couple of recent entries from the British Board of Film Classification (the rich man’s MPAA), we now have additional details regarding the bonus features for the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray which will be available to own on September 24 with HD Digital Download available beginning September 9.
In addition to the assigned titles of the deleted scenes (which not-so-coyly give insight as to what they may be about), we also have lengths for each bonus feature, all of which is provided below:
Deconstructing the Scene: Attack on Air Force One (8:19)
Ahead of any official announcement, Walmart has begun listing the 20th Anniversary edition of Nightmare Before Christmas on 3D and 2D Blu-ray with a release date of September 10, 2013. Previously Amazon.com had listed it briefly with a release date of August 27, but soon switched dates (it’s currently listed as June 21, but unavailable).
Additionally, a hardcover book written and illustrated by Tim Burton is slated for release on August 6, 2013.
Although there have been many rumors circulating around a domestic release date for this summer’s blockbuster, Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr. as eccentric billionaire Tony Stark, thanks to a DisneyStore.com listing for the 2D edition, we now have an official release date of September 24, 2013. Amazon.com lists the 3D/2D/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Pack available for pre-order.
Oddly enough, there is no mention of bonus features yet, but thanks to a tip from the forums at hidefninja.com, we have a list of potential bonus feature candidates from the Amazon Italy’s listing for the steelbook edition of the film. While we are still awaiting an official announcement for release (hopefully with confirmed list of bonuses), here are some ideas of what we might expect:
First is the 30th Anniversary edition of Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Disney’s timeless tale sparkles like never before on Blu-ray and Digital Copy, with fully-restored classic holiday shorts, plus all-new bonus features. Make the season merry as Mickey, Goofy, Donald and all their pals star in a heartwarming retelling of Dickens’ unforgettable holiday tale. Ebenezer Scrooge (Scrooge McDuck) is far too greedy to understand that Christmas is a time for kindness and generosity. But with the guidance of some wise ghosts (Goofy and Jiminy Cricket) and a bunch of newfound friends, Scrooge learns to embrace the spirit of the season. Share this wonderful holiday treat with the whole family.
Ahead of any official announcements, Amazon.com has taking pre-orders for the the 1979 classic, The Muppet Movie: The Nearly 35th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment with a release date of August 13, 2013.
Celebrate The Nearly 35th Anniversary of the ultimate frogs-to-riches story with the one that started it all — The Muppet Movie. Laugh along with the mostly-true story of how the Muppets got their start, now for the first time ever in vibrant Blu-ray hi-def picture and sound.
