Admittedly we had prematurely announced a release date for Disney/Pixar’s Up on Blu-ray 3D on May 1, but these things happen to all sites now and then and we’ve reached the stage of acceptance. That said, we are now ready to announce a new date for the release, which will be December 4, 2012. This comes to us via Amazon.com which has begun taking pre-orders for the 5 disc set ahead of any official announcement.
Also being released on Blu-ray 3D on December 4, as per Amazon.com, is Finding Nemo. After the theatrical run of the 3D version of the film, which premieres September 14, it will be available to own on Blu-ray 3D in a 5-disc ‘ultimate collectors edition’ set.
No word yet on bonus features for the film which is also making its blu-ray debut, but we will update as that information becomes available to us.
UPDATE #1: 6/1/12 – Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed that the blu-ray bonus features will consist of ’3D Virtual Aquariums, 2D Virtual Aquariums, CineExplorer, a Filmmaker Roundtable and more.’
On the heels of the phenomenal success of The Lion King 3D – which will cross the $80 million mark at the domestic box office today – The Walt Disney Studios has announced limited theatrical engagements for four of its classic films for the first time in 3D. The following titles from Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios will be released in 2012 and 2013:
- Beauty and the Beast – January 13, 2012
- Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo – September 14, 2012
- Disney/Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. – January 18, 2013 (Monsters University, a prequel to the original film, arrives in theaters in Disney Digital 3D on June 21, 2013)
- The Little Mermaid – September 13, 2013
“Great stories and great characters are timeless, and at Disney we’re fortunate to have a treasure trove of both,” said Alan Bergman, President, The Walt Disney Studios. “We’re thrilled to give audiences of all ages the chance to experience these beloved tales in an exciting new way with 3D – and in the case of younger generations, for the first time on the big screen.”
Originally released in 1991, Beauty and the Beast is a classic “tale as old as time” that follows the adventures of Belle, a bright young woman imprisoned in the castle of a mysterious beast and his enchanted staff, who must learn the most important lesson of all – that true beauty comes from within. Beauty and the Beast was the first animated film ever nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Picture, earning an additional five Oscar® nominations and winning two. It has grossed $380.4 million worldwide.
First released in 2003, Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo takes audiences into a whole new world in this undersea adventure about family, courage and challenges. When Marlin, an overly cautious clownfish living in the Great Barrier Reef, helplessly watches his son get scooped up by a diver, he must put aside his fears of the ocean and leave the safety of his coral enclave to find Nemo. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory, a forgetful but relentlessly optimistic fish, Marlin finds himself the unlikely hero in a seemingly impossible land-and-sea rescue. Finding Nemo won an Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature and was nominated for three others. With a total of $867.6 million worldwide, it was the second highest-grossing film of 2003.
In 2001, Disney/Pixar released Monsters, Inc. Lovable Sulley and his wisecracking sidekick Mike Wazowski are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the scream-processing factory in Monstropolis. But when a little girl named Boo wanders into their world, it’s up to Sulley and Mike to keep her out of sight and get her back home. Monsters, Inc. shattered every DVD-era home entertainment sales record when 11 million DVD/VHS copies were sold during its first week of release. It won an Academy Award® for Best Song and has grossed $526.9 million worldwide.
Released in 1989, The Little Mermaid, stars Ariel, a fun-loving and mischievous mermaid, off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder, and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula. One of the most celebrated animated films of all time, The Little Mermaid was nominated for three Academy Awards®, winning two. It has grossed $228.9 million worldwide.
In the next of its series of sneak peek behind-the-scene construction videos, Disney Cruise Line offers up a brief look at the construction of the ‘Nemo’s Reef’ children’s area based on the Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo. From concept art to the (not quite) finished product, the video offers some insight on what it takes to make these special amenities exclusive to the Disney Dream possible. The ship will also feature play areas based on Toy Story and Monsters, Inc.

The show is based on the animated Disney-Pixar film “Finding Nemo.” Among the show’s featured characters are “Bloat,” a blowfish (left), who was voiced by Garrett in the feature film, and Nemo (right), a clownfish and star of the film and musical show. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of four theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort.
I have two very long weeks to go before I can report from NY Comic-Con and I’ve been boning up best I can just to pass the time. So I was ecstatic to come across an interview with BOOM! Studios’ Mark Waid on the new Disney/Pixar comics due out in March along with the Muppets and even more on the way.
BOOM! Studios will be at NY Comic-Con so if I learn or see anything else, you’ll see it here first.
