They are finally going to be out on discs on 10 Nov 2009.
Pixar's Up is also going to be available in Blu-ray, which is the version I'm getting. There are 4 discs! I can't wait to watch the behind-the-scenes documentaries — always my favourite part of the disc.
The DVD version has only 1 disc which features two shorts, Dug's Special Mission and Partly Cloudy. There is a two-disc edition but the second disc holds only the digital copy.
Looks like Disney is trying to push people — maybe more of Pixar fans — over to Blu-ray. Either that or they are trying to piss off Pixar fans who don't have a Blu-ray player. It's probably more of the latter. They can spend the effort to create a digital copy DVD but not another disc with the behind-the-scenes documentary. It sounds pretty ridiculous to me. If I don't already have a Blu-ray player, I will be very unhappy.
Monster's Inc Blu-ray is also coming out on the same day, after lagging behind the Japanese release for a few months. It seems like they have added a few more documentaries on the discs. Awesome!
28 Oct update: Amazon's taking $10 off if you get both Up and Monsters Inc Blu-rays together.
You can check out more details on the disc releases on Amazon. It's coming out in US and Canada first.
