Default Disney Blu-ray Titles as well as new Blu-ray Shorts

Disney to shoot Blu-ray shorts

http://news.com.com/Disney+to+shoot+...3-6094737.html

Quote:
Raising the bar in the Blu-ray Disc vs. HD DVD battle, Walt Disney is creating a series of short films to be shot in high-definition to accompany select films the company will release in the Blu-ray format.

It's the first move by any studio to develop original content for the Sony-developed Blu-ray format, a step observers feel is critical to giving the format the upper edge over Toshiba's rival HD DVD.

Finding a successor to standard DVD is a key issue in Hollywood, as 28 million U.S. households are expected to have high-definition televisions by the end of this year, and packaged media desperately needs a seat at that table.

The latest projections are that high-definition discs could generate $10 billion in annual consumer spending by 2010, keeping home entertainment spending level despite continued and rapid encroachment by digital downloading.

The "Blu-Scape" shorts will be shot by cinematographer Louie Schwartzberg, who two years ago directed a theatrical feature film, "America's Heart & Soul," for Walt Disney Pictures.

Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment unit is expected to announce on Monday its first nine titles in the next-generation Blu-ray Disc format, coming in two waves, beginning Sept. 19. Five of them--Walt Disney Pictures' "Dinosaur," "Eight Below," "Glory Road" and "Haunted Mansion," along with Touchstone Pictures' "Gone in Sixty Seconds"--will come with the exclusive shorts, which the studio says will be "inspired" by the respective films.

"Dinosaur" and "Eight Below" are slated for September 19 release, along with Miramax Films' "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "The Great Raid."

The second wave of titles, due October 17, includes "Glory Road, "Haunted Mansion" and "Gone in Sixty Seconds," as well as Touchstone's "Dark Water" and Dimension Films' "The Brothers Grimm."

Most Buena Vista Blu-ray titles will list for $34.99.

At launch, Buena Vista's Blu-ray titles will feature advanced new menus, with seamless navigation and settings that can be accessed while the movie is playing. They also will come with new layering coating technology that provides a scratch-resistant surface.

Buena Vista's expected announcement will make it the fourth studio to announce titles and release dates for Blu-ray, tipping the scale in favor of the format. Warner Home Video weighed in last week with four titles, while Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Lionsgate have both been releasing Blu-ray products since late June.

Only three studios are releasing HD DVD products: Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Paramount Home Entertainment and Warner.

Paramount and Twentieth Century Fox Film are expected to announce their inaugural Blu-ray lineups shortly.
Do some HD DVD fanboys still think Disney is going to release in HD DVD?......Dosen't look probable. It ought to be an awesome fall for Blu-ray indeed in the next coming months.

Studio support is really gonna be the key here. Above all else.

Once Paramount and WB start doing BDs and Fox adds to the exclusive pile, things will get interesting.

Get your popcorn and watch the fireworks!

it's painfully obvious by doing this they have no intention of doing HDDVD anytime soon. Unless ofcourse 45gb TL HDDVD's come out that can support the additional room needed for such features.

Im really excited to see the FOX & Disney offerings. They've sat on the bench waiting for good reasons IMO.

Absolutely, but really that's not what is real important. The real importance is that Disney is Blu-ray exclusive. More popular titles will always come down the pipeline.

Once the 50GB DL discs become viable we will see the "primo titles" from Disney.

Chronicles of Narnia and Pirates of the Carribean 1 & 2 hopefully by xmas.

I'm guessing ALL Disney titles are going to be 50gb DL, isn't this why they waited?

Wow this announcement came sooner than I had anticipated. Glad it's official now. Unfortunately I only see one title of interest to me: Gone In 60 Seconds. How can any guy refuse Angelina Jolie and sports cars in HD?

I love the "something for everybody" approach movie studio's are taking in selecting their first offerings in High Def. makes for a versatile library right out of the gate.

I think alot of people are focusing on the titles released and not focusing enough on the actual number of movies that are being released. Right now the only people buying the movies and players are early adopter types. I've been witness to at least four people who are buying up Blu-ray titles like there's no tomorrow, two of them are customers of mine, and then there is myself, and Brian. I've purchased every Blu-ray disc that's available to me and so have my some of my customers (one guy owns all of the BD and the HD-DVDs).

In the situation that most of us find ourselves in, (hoping that BD doesn't fail) have to be the support mechanism for the format in order to garner more studio and manufactors support for the technology. If the movie studios see constant support, then it won't be long until the blockbuster titles we are all waiting for are released.
Blu-ray Disc Collection- I don't think I can count that high...

Notice the words "Beyond High Definition" on that cover? Why do I get the feeling all of the Disney BDs will either be VC1 or dual layer?

Not too pleased about the list, but let's hope that Disney actually knows how to release a movie better than Blu-Ray's father.
