Why bother when they can sell a "limited" karaoke version at Christmas, then save the 3D for, I dunno, the sequel (or for when they can include that short which will be in Cinderella).

What the hell is up with the last extra being DMA only? Shit, they're migrating to everything being digital only.

Sounds like your basic featurettes on there. Oh well, I'm no longer big on features these days either so I guess Disney knows what they're doing. 3D or packed extras aren't going to make a big difference on purchases, so might as well go cheap on these releases.

Is 3D bigger abroad than it is here (or at least in demand enough to demand more of a premium or something)? Otherwise I don't get it.

Home media in general is. There seems to be more thought and care in to foreign markets than there is for releases here in the states.

I used to think that maybe Europe was an intellectual oasis or something. Then I saw that Battlefield Earth was on Blu-ray there .

It is? I'll buy it if it's the theatrical version.

Japan has always had the best media releases- AND they still have Tower Records over there!

Nothing listed by them at this time. But considering they have released one for just about every new Disney release, I'm guessing they will for this movie - and in 3D.

Although Marvel is now owned by Disney, it's still managed separately.

I will go that route if they do, just as I did with Frozen.

Re: 'Big Hero 6' (Feb. 24th)

according to Amazon (Canada) the audio is 7.1 surround - let's see if it's the same for the US version.

Re: 'Big Hero 6' (Feb. 24th)

Are they just doing the digital 3D like they did with Frozen. I'll still pick up the blu for this but may have to try to talk my parents into picking it up on Vudu in 3D since their LG is 3D.

Disney has given up on Blu-ray 3D in the American market. It may be available on that format overseas, however.

I know the U.S. was not given a 3D blu but it was released through sites like Vudu for digital purchase and rental in 3D, so I didn't if Big Hero 6 was going to get the same treatment. It is available for pre-order on Vudu but not for 3D as of yet.
