Finding Nemo Blu-ray Is Finally Here!

4 December 2012

Finding Nemo Blu-ray CoverThe Pixar blu-ray library is now officially complete! Finding Nemo, the last of Pixar's feature films to be ported to the high-definition blu-ray format is available to own today. The best-selling DVD of all time is undoubtedly worth the wait. This well-received Pixar classic was originally released to theaters in May 2003 and has been available on DVD since that fall.

Earlier this year, Finding Nemo made its way back into theaters with an additional dimension to show off. The 3D re-release may carry some of the blame for the long wait.

Finding Nemo is available on Amazon in both a 3-disc 2D combo pack, and a 5-disc 3D combo pack.

UP on 3D Blu-ray, Available Today!

4 December 2012

UP 3D Blu-ray CoverAfter a long wait, and several bad guesses and false release dates, UP is now available to own in 3D. UP was Pixar's first film released in theaters in 3D in may 2009, and has been available on Blu-ray in 2D only since November 2009. But the 3 year wait is now over. UP and Finding Nemo (also on blu-ray today) are the top most-suited-for-3D Pixar films on my list, followed closely by WALL•E, but I'll just have to be patient for that one.

UP in 3D is available on Amazon in a 5 disc combo pack.

Rumors of Docter Mind Film Title

4 December 2012

There is strong evidence to suggest that the as yet Untitled Mind Film in development by Pete Docter is about to receive an official title.

Pete Docter, Pixar Director

Over the weekend, Brendon Connelly of Bleeding Cool heard word that the film in question will be referred to as "The Inside Out" once the announcement has been made. In his research he also discovered that the head of Disney distribution in Italy had used the same title in an interview with Primissima in conjunction with an international release date that fits well with the domestic one. Barring any legal conflicts, or creative changes, it seems a likely, and fitting move for the film, considering its context as a film that explores and personifies the various emotions inside a little girl's head.

Pixar still has a few years to make up its mind, though, with the current release target set for June 19th, 2015. Stay tuned for further, more official updates.
