Disney Unveils Full Specs, Box Art for 'Narnia' Blu-ray

Disney has revealed new details for the highly-anticipated Blu-ray release of 'Chronicles of Narnia,' which will hit high-def this May as a two-disc set with hours of bonus features and exclusive content.

As we first reported last month, 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' will make its long-awaited Blu-ray debut on May 13 as one of the most eagerly-awaited next-gen releases of the year.

Full specs are now in, with Disney porting over all of the bonus features found on the previous two-disc DVD special edition of the film. Among the numerous extras are two audio commentaries (the first with the filmmakers, the second a cast track with the film's young stars), a seven-part "Creating Narnia" documentary ("Chronicles Of A Director," "The Children's Magical Journey," "Evolution Of An Epic," "From One Man's Mind," "Cinematic Storytellers," "Creating Creatures", "Anatomy of a Scene: The Melting River"), an additional three-part "Creatures, Lands & Legends" feature ("Legends In Time,""Creatures Of The World," the "Explore Narnia" Interactive 3-D Map), and a "Bloopers Of Narnia" gag reel.

Although the studio indicated in early press materials that 'Narnia' would include picture-in-picture content, no such feature has yet been announced for the Blu-ray. However, exclusive to the release will be the new "Battle For Narnia" interactive game, which will make full use of the format's BD-Java capabilities.

Disney has also confirmed that the Blu-ray will feature the 135-minute theatrical version of the film (not the 147-minute extended version made available as a separate DVD release), which will be presented on a BD-50 dual-layer disc in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and uncompressed PCM 5.1 Surround (48kHz/24-bit).

Finally, Disney has issued box art for 'Narnia':

Damm! If they had just released the extended edition this would have been a sure double dip for me. Now, forget it.

The extended added nothing to the film. I'm still down for this release.

Never saw the EE, so I don't know what I'd be missing anyway. I thought the theatrical was very true to the book as is. I'm in.

Hopefully they will have a $10 mail in rebate for owners of the standard versions.

I know, but there is so much non disc related material in there, that I put it with the "DVD's". Sorry, thanks' for moving it.

How so? Most everything added was just coverage shots between scenes. 5 seconds here, 10 seconds there. I don't recall any substantial scenes added at all. Nothing but padding.

Yeah the EE for CON didn't add anything to important at all. Now if this was the LOTR trilogy, I would have stayed away from the theatricals till the EEs came out.

So that means you decide what should go where?

Did they clean up any of the shoddy CGI?

Yes exactly, I was trying to be malicious about the whole thing. That is why I said "Sorry please move".
