Originally, I imagined something along the lines of this year’s Toy Story and Toy Story 2 HD releases, but the layout seen to the right looks great nonetheless. We think it’s the real deal, although there’s always the possibility that it isn’t final, and I wouldn’t be surprised by alternate covers.
This design is pretty similar to the film’s UK theatrical poster. At first glance, they seem identical, but look closely and you won’t be able to miss some significant differences. You’ll also notice that the product is listed as a "2-Disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy" combo pack. Sounds like there’s a lot to look forward to!
Update: The rumors have been confirmed! Toy Story 3 is set to hit store shelves on November 2nd, 2010. Amazon.com currently lists a 4-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack, a 2-Disc Blu-ray (with alternate cover) and a stand alone DVD for pre-order. A full list of special features, including a sneak preview at Cars 2, is expected soon.
