Up Blu-ray/DVD Out November 10th; Features & Cover Art Revealed!

Adventure is out there and coming to your home as Up lands on Blu-ray and DVD November 10th, 2009!

This release will come in three main variations: a 4-Disc Blu-ray (2 Blu-rays, a Digital Copy for handheld devices, and a standard DVD), a 2-Disc Special Edition DVD (confirmed) and a 1-Disc Standard DVD. The barebones 1-Disc release will only include the shorts Partly Cloudy and Dug’s Special Mission as extras. The 2-Disc would add commentary, a featurette and a digital copy. On the other hand the 4-Disc set is packed with loads of bonus material!

In this collector’s must-have you will find all of the above plus making-of extras such as character focused Geriatric Hero, Canine Companions, Russell: Wilderness Explorer and Our Giant Flightless Friend, Kevin, as well as set, research and music focused Homemakers of Pixar, Balloons and Flight, Adventure is Out There (the much talked about trip to South America) and Composing for Characters. You can also find alternate scenes like Married Life and The Many Endings of Muntz included in the set. Like all other Pixar Blu-rays you’ll also be treated to Cine-Explore (commentary plus visuals) with Pete Docter and Bob Peterson and an exclusive Java based game called Global Guardian Badge Game. To see the detailed description of these features and more click on [Extended Description] at this link.

The 1-Disc release will be retailing for US $19.99 and the 4-Disc Set will be selling for US $34.99 through Disney although the SRP is different according to the press release. You can pre-order Up in those versions at the links above and receive a pin set or through Amazon (which is listing a different price) among others.

There are two other major Pixar releases coming our way November 10th. Stand by for a write up on those.

    Finally they are bundling a DVD with the Blu-ray release. Disney has been doing that with non-Pixar releases for some time now.

    When I read “4-disc Blu-ray”, I was kinda hoping for the soundtrack as bonus disc, but it still looks like an awesome package.
    I just hope the international versions are as jam-packed as this one.

  2. Digital Copies are very unnecessary. It’s just Disney’s way of boosting the SRP. =/ I mean if we wanted it on our iPods, we’d get it using the iTunes store!

    Love the covers. Love the 1-disc one more though.

    Will be getting the Lamp set of possible. I really want to see how it “holds all your Pixar blu-rays!”

    This is very frustrating for me. Basically, if I want the DVD, the absolute most that I can get is a commentary, featurette, and two shorts. (Oh, and the digital copy I’ll never use.) That’s for the 2-disc DVD, but it’s barely more than the barebones releases for Cars and Ratatouille. On the other hand, I can buy the blu-ray (which will HOPEFULLY have the decency to include the commentary and featurette on the DVD-disc), but will still have to wait until I get a blu-ray player and HDTV if I want to watch the additional bonus features.

    I’m a college student! I don’t have money to spend on all the necessary upgrades for blu-ray. And even if I did, I wouldn’t have anywhere to put it at least until I graduate in three years and get my own place. Also, I really hope the prices on Amazon are wrong, because $45 is about the price you pay for a complete season set of a TV show (and a lot of shows are charging less these days). It’s way too much for a movie!

    Remember the good ol’ days when the most expensive movie set was around $25 and included much better bonus features that could all be accessed instantly without requiring hardware upgrades? I miss those days.

    However, rant aside, I am glad that they’re finally including DVDs inside the blu-ray sets for Pixar films, so I won’t have to double-dip like I eventually will for Cars and Ratatouille.

    Any chance of a 3-D DVD release?

    Assuming they release it digital 3d, at least. I just picked up Coraline in 3D, and couldn’t be more disappointed. Red/blue 3D? In 2009? Let’s face it, we all have digital TVs at this point, so why not a digital 3D release?

    What are the other two Pixar releases coming out those days?

    You mean other than the fact that there does not exist a TV on the market that is capable of displaying 3D the way it is seen in theatres?
