Brazil The Illusionauts aka Freedom Force 3D Blu-ray (2012) [Region Free]



Since it ends up getting mentioned in other threads a lot, I thought we'd better have a solo thread for this animated feature.

A German edition looks to have been planned but never released so ultimately it was only made available on 3D Blu-ray in China, Brazil and Turkey - please note that the Turkish edition has issues so is best avoided. I own the Brazilian edition (Os Ilusionautas). That and the Chinese edition both include English audio and are region free.

I know Amazon Germany had this up for preorder at one point but it never came out, I’m wondering if it’s because they saw that someone messed up the master? It’s either the master or some kind of bug with my projector, but I’ve never seen something like this before. I’ve tried Sony and Panasonic players and the same result on both. A shame really because the menu has very nice 3D sequences.

And if you read the Bolts & Blip thread, I found the opposite is true.

3-D Bolts & Blip-- buy Turkish
3-D The Illusionauts-- buy Brazilian

My copy was shipped over a month ago and I still have not received it. If I ever get my copy I will comment on the movie and the 3D.

Did you buy the Brazilian edition or the Turkish one?

Unfortunately the Turkish one. At the time I had no clue that I had a choice. Hope I don't face the issues everyone else has had with this version but I am anticipating that I will.

I tried with my usual Brazilian supplier and he told me the brazilian edition is put of print. A shame. This movie looks like allot of fun in 3D.

Well, I hope the Turkish version will play without issues but everyone that has it has had problems with the disc being buggy.

I received my copy today from Turkey. Getting ready to give it a watch. I will let you all know how it played out. Hoping for a good watch but from what I read I am not expecting an error free disc.

Update: Unwatchable in 3D. 2D plays fine. Gonna contact the seller and see if I can get a refund.

Is there a place anyone would recommend I buy the Brazillian version from? I checked eBay and Livraria Cultura with no results, unfortunately. Thanks for your help!

I haven't seen the Brazil item at any retail site in a long time and certainly not one of the stores that ships international. I don't think AmazonBrazil has had it in stock.

The best suggestion I can think of would be to get someone in Brazil to buy it for you and ship it. I was able to see a few copies for sale (mostly used) at a couple of auction or re-sale sites similar to Ebay.

if have a contact and go that route it might be interesting to see if you get ahold of a few more of the less common 3D titles like Planes 2 (Aviões 2 Herois Do Fogo Ao Resgate). That disc has become extremely hard to find anywhere since Sanborns (MX) stopped shipping to the US. Shipping multiple items might at least make the shipping costs less awful.

Thank you for the suggestion! I don't have many contacts, unfortunately, but I'll continue to keep an eye out on eBay!

I actually have Aviões 2, and it's currently available at Livraria Cultura (for a really good price) if you were looking for that. Signing up for the first time can be a bit of pain, but totally worth it!

Thanks again!

EDIT: Actually, you may have originally helped me with the signing up process, ha!

Possibly on the signup issue.
I didn't realize Planes 2 was back in stock there. When I was doing orders for Bigfoot Jr it was OOS or I would likely have added a few copies to an order. I can't tell if LC is shipping internationally right now at all. I can't get past the Cart screen

I do have the Mexican version I bought many years ago. Mixup Mx had some copies a couple months ago, but now they appear OOS too. Price wasn't too bad, but shipping for less than 5-10 items was pretty expensive
