‘Pete’s Dragon’ to Have Brazzle Dazzle Blu-ray Day in October

Pete's Dragon on Blu-rayCelebrating its 35th anniversary and ahead of any official announcements, the official Disney DVD site is reporting that the beloved classic Pete’s Dragon will be making its debut on blu-ray on October 2, 2012.

While Disney announced earlier this year that the film would be released on blu-ray this year, information surrounding the release outside of the site seems to be as elusive as Elliott himself. To complicate matters further, the DVD site has proven to be very unreliable in terms of release dates in recent months.

Disney Studio All Access Finally Launching This Month? (Introducing Disney Everywhere’s Movie Cloud)

Disney Studio All Access for iPhone DevicesNow that Disney (NYSE:DIS) has finally gotten its ‘TV Everywhere’ initiative off the ground, as we first reported earlier this month — with even more networks such as ABC Family on the way, along with cable providers beyond Comcast — the focus now shifts to Disney’s extensive film collection.

An announcement made last week on Disney Movies Online has raised some eyebrows, causing some to ponder if DSAA/Keychest’s time has finally arrived. Certainly the changes coming to DMO on June 27 are worth the contemplation: accounts for those under 13 not permitted; accounts only for United States users; and a slew of films that won’t be available for viewing online for the foreseeable future.

Just a couple of days after announcing that an ‘Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition’ will tour the world, including stops at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) and the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with several additional behind-the-scenes photos from the film. A feature-length stop-motion remake of the original short film by Burton, Frankenweenie is a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new ‘leash on life’ can be monstrous.
