USA Frozen 3D (US) Order Cancelled By Amazon

I just got an email cancelling my preorder for Frozen 3D. They had a link for a new version of the product, which was not in 3D, but appears to be a standard Blu Ray release.

Does this mean we will not get this movie in 3D ? Maybe the announcement is delayed a few days and the spec is different than the original ?

Either way, I was a little disturbed by this.

It is a little disturbing when there is no explanation.

We recently learned the following item is no longer available from our supplier:
'Frozen (Three-Disc 3D Blu-ray / Blu-ray / DVD + Digital Copy)'
As a result, this item has been cancelled from your order
First, 20th Century Fox only listing a 2D Free Birds that was in 3D theatrically, and now this..

The problem may be that Amazon was offering a 3D BD "Music Bundle" where Walmart has a 3D BD "Music Bundle" listed as an exclusive.

Deep Discount still has a 3D BD pre-order.

Didn't they offer buyers of the 2D combo a chance to buy the 3D disc via mail for like $5.00 to try to make up for such a ridiculous release?

Would actually have been a better deal then just buying the standalone 3D bluray + digital copy version. However, I opted for the 3D standalone as I recently contracted that nasty slipcover illness and felt a need for the 3D slipcover.

There are those in the general blu-ray release thread speculating that the 3D verison may be a Walmart exclusive.

It's been getting harder and harder for me to get 3D releases lately, I'd say within the last few months. Some stores have been sporadic in even releasing the 3D version of some movies (like Target for instance and Walmart many times). And if they do, it's only a few copies on launch day. Now Free Birds, with a wide theatrical release in 3D, foregoes a 3D release entirely. Frozen, a major animation film, is now only available in 3D as a Walmart exclusive? This is a disturbing trend. It looks like 3D blu-rays are being phased out. I believe this because the availability and quantity of 3D lately has definitely been on the decline. It pisses me off too because I just paid off an expensive 3D TV.

Still. It is a bit of an alarming trend. 3D really hasn't taken off the way studios thought in the wake of Avatar, and especially in the home market, there just isn't that much material available, it's expensive to make available, and clearly it doesn't sell as much as it should.
Films such as Gravity help to prove 3D is more than just a gimmick and something that can enhance the experience, but those examples are too few and too far between. Really hoping this trend doesn't continue...

You could be on to something. Found that the Blu-ray.com Frozen 3D Blu-ray page removed "Wal-mart Exclusive" from the front of the "Music Bundle" description heading this morning. (Edit: Found that it is still there, but now as an option on another different page.) Maybe we may still get a pre-order notification for an Amazon purchase.

But we haven't even gotten to lamenting how much the studios suck yet.

Current listings on Amazon for blu-ray and DVD of Frozen indicate it's in stock, shipping in 1-3 weeks.

Of course we know that's inaccurate, should be showing as pre-order.

With the 3D version going missing, release looks messed up.

Hopefully they don't pull another fiasco like the Oz Great And Powerful debacle.
