3D Blu-Ray Titles Coming This Year.

Posted on

Disney-Blu-Ray

It seems that 3D is well on its way.  Companies at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas seems to have plenty of 3D-enabled televisions to show off, and Disney, Sony, Imax, and Discovery all had big announcements on 3D television channels slated to begin airing this year.

Now I’ve found information on HollywoodReporter.com that Disney plans to release 3D movies on Blu-Ray this year.  In 2010, you can expect to see Disney’s A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland, and Toy Story 3 on your 3D-ready TV and Blu-Ray device.  Disney is also handing out a promotional “3D Showcase Disc” to manufacturers that feature 3D clips of Working for Peanuts, the Donald Duck cartoon that premiered in 3D in the early 1950s.  This disc will be bundled in with certain hardware to show off its 3D capabilities.

What do you think?  Are you getting excited for a 3D home theater?  Or are you skeptical about the staying power of 3D?  Let me know in the comments below!

UPDATE: According to Engadget, Disney’s A Christmas Carol will hit the streets in the fourth quarter of this year.  I know they’re aiming for the holiday season, but that still seems pretty far away.  The equipment will be available before the fourth quarter and ESPN 3D is launching in June, so wouldn’t it be a good idea to get some 3D Blu-Rays out around then?  We’ll see what happens!

    I really think that 3D will be awesome! I loved Toy Story in 3D! When a show is in 3D it makes everything come to life and right in front of your eyes!! Having Disney characters come to life in front of the eyes of children makes adults enjoy watching them as well. I cant wait for this, and i am sure that other will agree with me!!

    • Thanks, Denise! Toy Story was an excellent movie in 3D, and I really enjoyed seeing it in theaters. I don’t know if consumers want to spend tons of money to upgrade their televisions and other devices just to have 3D at home. But, I guess stranger things have happened…
