The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

Best Buy says so, anyway.

Aside from The Prestige, which it doesn't sound like Disney spearheaded, this'll be the Mouse's first catalog title in 4K. Of course, some of these Best Buy listings haven't exactly borne fruit in the past, but...

And, I guess we'll never see the 3D re-rendering that they completed for this.

Maybe there'll be an overseas release?

Yeah, personally I'm more interested in a 3D release than a 4K release. Probably not going to happen though. Still one of my favorite Pixar movies.

I'd definitely buy this in 4K, would make sense to release it before the sequel comes out.

I wonder if Pixar is re-rendering these movies natively in 4K for the UHD release. I thought with blu-ray releases, they re-rendered movies like Toy Story to the higher resolution.

No. They've explained that they don't see a sufficient price/performance ratio after 4K rendering tests they've conducted and will be proceeding with upscales of existing 2K renders for the time being.

Toy Story and Toy Story 2 had already been re-rendered for 3D theatrical before they were released on Blu-ray. So the re-render wasn't specifically for the Blu-ray.

It's not like the original render of Toy Story was that bad, at 1536 922.

More info on the 3D conversions:

If they had decided to work on a 3D re-render of The Incredibles, they might've decided to go 4K as well for that render. However, that seems unlikely considering they're still rendering new films like Coco at 2K.

re: The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

Back when Atmos was a new thing, I attended a demo at Dolby HQ that showed a scene from The Incredibles (Dash racing around through the island jungle) remixed into Atmos. It was a proof-of-concept test Dolby had done to show off the format. Hopefully, if this UHD release is real, it will have a full Atmos mix.

I had no idea the amount of work they went through for some of those 3D conversions.

I remember a similar story when making their Pan & Scan versions for home video. They re-rendered Bug's Life (which was 2.39:1 ratio I believe) into 1.33 by moving the virtual camera to put the characters into the 1.33 frame, basically reshooting the entire movie.

They did that for a few films. I remember Finding Nemo was pretty much a full "open-matte" presentation, where basically they opened it up to 1.33:1

For a Bug's Life, they sometimes even moved characters to keep them in the new 1.33:1 frame. Still, a good portion was still crop/P&S:

Bug's Life DVD Featurette on the reframing:

Examples:

Of course, I don't think they rendered those special 1.33:1 versions at anything higher than SD video, and they only had to re-render the bits that weren't P&S.

re: The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

As much as I like The Incredibles, I won't be upgrading from the BD.
Frankly, I don't see the added value of an animated movie in UHD over a BD.
I'm sure it would look better, but I'm not convinced it would make viewing the movie a better experience....

re: The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

No 3D, no sale.

You'd think Disney would want to get the money out of their 3D conversion investment of the Incredibles by releasing it to the home video market.. or at least a theatrical re-release in 3D before Incredibles 2, but that's not happening.

Maybe they'll release it overseas like Ratatouille... only without the region lock.

Yeah, I know this is about UHD so, fWIW, even though I know my next TV will be 4K I'm not planning on upgrading any of my Disney stuff to 4K. Or anything else for that matter. New stuff I'll buy depending on circumstances.

re: The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

Almost bought the BD on the weekend to prep my kid for the sequel. Looks like I'll just hold off and buy this 4k release instead. Not the steelbook, though.

Wait... According to the BB listing, the steelbook comes out a week earlier than the regular case. Hmm...

I'm going to wait for reviews since Coco's UHD was apparently disappointing.

I already have the original release, but might spring for the steelbook and just sell my original copy. Hopefully that will offset the cost a bit.

My original one didn't come with a digital copy, so this 4K release will kill two birds that way.

re: The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

The Marvel steels go for big money later on, so that’s a little incentive to have one. I remember getting Ant-Man and never opening it and I sold it for $80.

I’m assuming the Pixar ones are the same. Maybe Disney in general.

I didn't think they sold a copy without digital. Which version did you buy?

if it gets an Atmos release, we may have to crank the volume a bit

Re: The Incredibles coming to UHD BD on 6/5/18

Did anyone pick this up and give it a spin yet?

Also, do we know if the digital redeems in 4K on VUDU like the Marvel releases?
