Pixar’s 3D reissue of Monsters, Inc. is wrapping up its theatrical release right now, and will next be seen on Blu-ray 3D beginning February 19, 2013.
Disney is packaging Monsters, Inc. on Blu-ray 3D in three and five-disc configurations. The five-disc package is the “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” and includes the film on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and a digital copy. The fifth disc is reserved for bonus features. The three-disc set includes Blu-ray, DVD, and the same bonus features disc. Aside from the inclusion of Partysaurus Res, the extras are essentially identical to the currently available Blu-ray and DVD combo pack version.
Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. comes to Blu-ray in 1.85:1 1080p video and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio, a bump up from the 5.1 track on the current Blu-ray version. Bonus features in both new versions of Monsters, Inc. include the following:
- Toy Story Toons: Partysaurus Rex
- For The Birds Short
- Filmmakers’ Round Table
- Audio Commentary
- Mike’s New Car Short
- Roz’s 100 Door Challenge Game
- Pixar Fun Factory Tour
- Banished Concepts
- And More…
Though I cannot confirm it at this time, I would expect Disney to run a promotion offering a free ticket to see the prequel Monsters University with the Blu-ray 3D release.
