Oh great. I thought it would be next year before I could buy the Blu-ray, they obviously want to cash in on the Christmas market.

Why would it be next year? That would be a ridiculously long window, especially for a film that you can already buy on streaming. The film is already confirmed to be available to all Disney+ subscribers without a surcharge on November 12. There's no reason for them to hold the Blu-ray for that long.

It's interesting to note that this is the second film (after Cruella) which is coming to physical media after it has already become available to all subscribers on Disney+. Mulan, Raya and the Last Dragon and Black Widow had physical media releases before the Disney+ paywall dropped.

Yeah, of course you're right, what was I thinking. Anyway, I'll be watching it over Christmas, but I don't think we'll get Dune or No Time To Die until next year (assuming that No Time To Die actually gets released this year).

Yes, it was available in some theaters in 3D, but Disney has not supported home 3D for years.

Disney bailed on 3D after the bombs that were Mars Needs Moms and A Christmas Carol. Their last 3D home video release was The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Even theatrically, 3D appears to be a dying breed here. My theater might have had Jungle Cruise in 3D for the first weekend (I don't remember because I didn't see it) but now they are only showing it in 2D. Free Guy has one showing in 3D but 11 others in 2D. So if you want to see it in 3D, it's available, but there is a distinct lack of options. I would imagine Free Guy will get dropped in 3D in a couple weeks.

I can't see 3D films properly because of my disability. A few years ago, when 3D was the primary format for IMAX and other premium format screens, I always hated that 2D options were largely unavailable. Now, things have swung back the other direction. I'm happy to get premium screenings in 2D, but it's too bad those who like 3D aren't being served as well either in theaters or on disc.
