I'm happy to hear this, because my copy is on the way. BUT:
When I saw this film in 3D in theatres, it struck me as a bit 'planar'... like, the characters looked kind of like 2D cutouts standing in 3-dimensional space, like a pop-up book. Not so on the blu? I recall similar things with The Phantom Menace.
Fears unfounded? Thoughts?
TPM has maddeningly subpar. With George Lucas behind this and what could have been done with the movie, I was left cold and vastly underwhelmed. Nothing stood out to me as particularly memorable or well done; it was TMP I've seen dozens of times before. Beauty and the Beast, on the other hand, was absolutely stunning, especially the ballroom scene. Depth, three dimensional feeling without items jumping out in your face.
Titanic and Avatar both created depth for me without throwing items at the screen "just because." This was a fully realized environment and I kept wanting to peek behind various objects to see what was there.
For the record, I am very very excited for Finding Nemo in 3D this weekend.
