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.
