the worst thing consumers can do in a sitatution like this is send a signal to Disney that digital-downloads are somehow an acceptable alternative to blu-ray quality.

If you want the 3D that much (as I do) then get an import. If you're worried about compatibility then just wait a week after release until other members have their import copies and can post to verify that they are region A compatible.

Or wait.

but either way, don't let Disney think by your action that download alternatives are acceptable.
What signal am I sending when I'm sure I'm one of only a small number of people who even know it's available in 3D digital? It's not exactly well promoted or all that accessible. Besides, if people are still buying physical discs studios will continue to make them. They're not going to just stop because I bought one digital movie. It comes down to which format is most appealing to consumers in the end.

And no, I'm not importing. I don't own any non-North American Blu-rays, and I'm keeping it that way. Call it an OCD thing if you want. And although it may not have "optimal" picture and sound it amazingly was still enjoyable, as hard as that may seem.

I will be buying this movie on 3D Blu-ray on day one, but until then my family can enjoy it now. There, I think I'm done justifying myself.

Something I learned a little while ago--If you want to experience cheaper prices and a wider range of available 3D content (and special editions like SteelBooks), you must be willing to import. Do it once or twice and it may actually become a fun, unique part of your collection. Don't let importphobia prevent you from enjoying the movies you want to see in the best quality possible.

If you're OCD about how the case spine will look on your shelf, get the Zavvi SteelBook. It's beautiful! If you want the cheapest Blu-ray, get the standard edition from Amazon UK. There's good options available for Frozen 3D. You just have to order them from a new website, pay a small premium, and wait a little longer for shipping.

I thought this wasn't getting a 3D release anywhere ! Pulled the trigger on the Amazon UK 3D edition. I wish the outer slip was a silver cover as I feel the blue-silver combo illustrates the mood and atmosphere of the movie and the cold very well, but apart from that, I'm just glad there's a 3D BD available for purchase!
I hope Disney doesn't give a DTS-HD HR track or something..

It made for a nice movie night for my wife and I in any case. The 3D was awesome, I don't think I would watch it any other way. It'll hold me over till Diseny releases the Blu-ray.
Why not import the UK 3D BD, watch it till the U.S version is released, then sell the U.K BD? Why pay 35$ for a digital copy with lossy audio and low bitrate? (Something that can disappear from your library at any given time.)

Finally did it and ordered the 3d version from Amazon.uk - comes out to $30 which isnt horrible as Im sure I would have been spending close to $25 if there was a 3d version here in the US. Only problem is I will be buying the US version if its ever released..

on another note -
Do we get slips from Amazon UK? The few items ive ordered came without slips but I think it was well after release.

You clearly don't realize who the guy on the left is. Trust me, the one on the right is probably smarter. Go look up "An Idiot Abroad".

Which, when I think about it, is funny. The series on blu ray only exists in Europe.

That said, I do appreciate the desire to have a specific look to one's collection. Having things the way you want them isn't OCD, it's preference and it's yours to decide what you want. Not being able to leave the house without checking the faucet 40 times is OCD, not wanting a tidy collection.

Oh, I forgot to ask: does anyone have the skinny on the extras that'll be offered on the UK edition? The 3D version on Vudu was good, but not $36 good.

Usually we get the exact same discs as the US version, so if it would've been included there, it should be included here.

I have almost every Disney 3D release all with Slipcovers in excellent condition neatly lined up on a shelf. But screw continuity. No way I am going to pay $35 for a 3D digital download that doesn't come close to 3D bluray quality even when streaming through VUDU. This will be my first import and I have no problem rebuying a domestic 3D release if and when it finally arrives for continuity sake. However, I'll probably just buy the 2D slipcover from someone in the slipcover trade thread if need be.... and this is coming from someone who has well over 200 ultraviolet HD digital copies in my UV locker so it's not an anti-digital copy thing, it's a $35 for a digital copy is a rip off when I was able to get the UK import preordered awhile back for $28 shipped.

Did anyone see the latest promo email from Vudu? It clearly advertises that Frozen 3D is a Vudu "Digital Exclusive" that is not available on Blu-ray. I think this pretty much confirms that Vudu has an exclusivity agreement with Disney for Frozen 3D in the United States. As soon as this agreement expires, I'm sure Disney will release the 3D version on Blu-ray.

Nice post. im totally ocd about not buying imports though I don't have one single reason. I used to feel that way about certain special editions that fit oddly on my shelf. Also about dvds but once I started I love having them. perhaps it'll be the same here. Plus as another poster mentioned... what better way to get Disney to stop doing this than to buy the import and show em were not gonna settle for digital only.

That explains a lot. I guess 3D BD / TV manufacture exclusives (Avatar/Panasonic, Dreamworks/Samsung, etc.) weren't bad enough to absolutely kill 3D BDs, now Disney is selling out to Vudu for a 3D Digital Download exclusive.

I wish they would stop this mess and just release awesome 3D BDs all the time.

Last time I checked, PS store was 720p only. Did that change?

Any savings by doing a group buy for the 3D version?

Oh you are correct it's a bare bones release with out any bonus features and yes inferior quality resolution I simply made my post to point out that vudu isn't a true only option version but an exclusive bundle and resolution version trust me hell will be FROZEN before I buy into disney's experiment and purchase a digital 3d copy no reason not to make 3d available on both digital and blu ray at the same time let's face it the entire release of frozen was not planed well at all because Disney had no idea it would become the hit it is (they need to have more faith in their movies) to me that explains the sub par bonus features and no commentary yet they brand the release a "collectors edition" come on Disney you know who collectors are or you would not have a d23 club with tons of "collectible" exclusives in fave today they are pre selling a "overpriced collectible LP soundtrack pressing of the Frozen soundtrack so I think Disney believes in a collector I also get it that the core audience to Disney movies is children that have no use for a commentary but Disney also certainly realizes that plenty of adult collectors are out there or the diamond editions would not be manufactured --- oh buy the way two things.... The new Disney movie app is a ok idea but not all my movies are available in it like they should be (black cauldron is not porting over?) and when we we see the classic Song of the South

It says "Digital Exclusive" which is correct since it's not on disc (at least here in the states)
