ComingSoon.net is reporting that they have some inside information from a company that does the physical production of Disney’s Blu-ray discs.
That information states that starting with Pinnochio on March 10th, all Disney Blu-ray discs will also come with a standard edition of the DVD.
Disney says this is so people can enjoy the movie in “more locations in their home.”
The thought behind it, I assume, is that many people only have one Blu-ray player. So when you purchase a Blu-ray movie, you have to watch it in a specific room. That’s the case in our household, and probably the same for many others. I think this is a great move on Disney’s part. It’ll cost them more, and from what we’re told, those costs will not increase the retail price of their Blu-ray movies. I think that’s a great thing Disney is doing. Hopefully it works out.
Surely when you saw Enchanted you noticed similarities to classic Disney stories – the poison apple from Snow White (at left), the dress-making birds from Cinderella, etc. What you probably didn’t notice was that the makers of Enchanted went so far as to frame shots the same way as certain Disney movies.
ComingSoon.net has exclusive stills from the movie, juxtaposed with the scenes they were modeled after in the classic Disney films. I can only imagine the level of stress this must have placed on the filmmakers during shooting.
You can check out the scenes for yourself when you pick up Enchanted on DVD today.
Apparently TV and movie fans aren’t the only ones sick of watching “American Gladiators” and “WWE Raw” to get through the strike (don’t judge – you’re probably watching crap too).
According to Reuters, a bunch of California Democrats sent a letter to Disney president and CEO Robert Iger and Fox president and COO Peter Chernin telling them to pick up the pace of negotiations. They point out that the impact on the rest of the workforce of California is too much to let them keep squabbling forever.
