    Well, except for all the Disney properties (Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucas) that have been released theatrically and on Bluray in the last 2 years and appears to be expected in the next year I might agree.

    I think you understand what I said. Yes a little while ago Disney told me they had no plans for anymore 3D Blu ray releases yet we’ve had Dumbo with Alladin and Lion king upcoming.

    I’m specifically talking about the launch of this Disney + channel, surely if they are interested in punters subscribing to this it’s why I’m doubting any future releases.

    Anyway no matter.

    i just don't think Physical Media existing or being released will have any effect on Disney+ subscriptions. If done properly I could actually see Disney+ driving up sales of physical media if Disney wanted to push that.

    Since I doubt 3D will be part of Disney+ there seems to be no cause/effect or downside to continuing to release 3D at least in the small numbers currently offered since many of those films seem to be destined for theatrical release

    Agreed. Unless they're able/willing to offer 3D streaming, I don't see how Disney+ would have any effect on their support of 3D blu-ray. That's likely strictly driven by sales, and I don't see too many who enjoy 3D passing on the disc because the film might be available for streaming on D+.

    Ok I must be dumb, Disney will want to promote D+ and as they are not fussed about 3D why will they bend over backwards to continue support for a minority of 3D Blu ray fans ?. I certainly hope I’m wrong and missing the point.

    I'm just not clear on why you're linking D+ with 3D? They are not going to drive 3D customers to D+ by ending support of 3D blu.

    As they seem to continue to release 3D in the UK, apparently the sales are there to make it worthwhile. Those sales will not directly transfer to D+ if the 3D discs disappear. I'm sure there's a tipping point, but at the moment the sales numbers would seem to support continued 3D releases (I'm sure import sales from North America are helping prop them up).

    I order all my 3Ds from Amazon.uk, but truly don’t understand how the Amazons work. Are they all independent of each other? Why can’t they “share” the inventory? Shouldn’t I just be able to get these 3D discs of AMERICAN movies in North America?

    Amazon UK has to have local inventory to make deliveries on time. The 3D movies you buy from UK are released to the UK market not the US. I’ll bet the studios would have a hissy if Amazon stocked them locally. But wait, I’ve seen UK listings on A.US and for more money.

    My DUMBO was due 2 weeks ago. So they are refunding my money plus $6. As soon as I see proof, I'll order it again.

    That's about 6 people I've read that had an issue with this title from AmazonUK-- either never shipped or shipped and never arrived. Mine came a couple weeks ago and even had a decent slipcover which is about 20% for me with UK Preorders (but 2 in a row). I have no idea what the issue is with this title.

    Got it from Zavvi with no problems.

    Would like to see someone try 3D on streaming again, it could catch on if done right- Vudu still has 3D movies on a pay per title basis but subscriptions would mean a lot less risk in watching them. Netflix had a few 3D titles a few years ago, but NONE of the equipment I had (including a 3D TV and 3D Blu-Ray player, both with Netflix apps) would support them, and of course no Roku units would either- and then they dropped it due to "lack of interest!"

    It’s hot here today, was going to watch Shazam but my wife suggested something to cool down.. Frozen!. As you know I’ve spoken about this title on several occasions but each time I see it the more we like it. As an overall 3D package for enjoyment of 3D, Movie, picture quality and sound this Disney magic ranks in my top 3 3D titles.

    Despite the recent issues -- AmazonUK is still the cheapest place and overall has been the most reliable
    Zavvi has it as well, but it's going to be more expensive through them
    If you want to wait a few months for it to be included in the normal 2 for 18 deals you could get it for about 1/2.


    There aren't a lot of options listed-- Germany, France and Japan appear to be the only other countries releasing it
    Neither India nor AUS got a 3D release
    The German is around $27 shipped, French $35, and Japanese 4K/3D combo $65

    I know it's old but, finally watched this last night. After a while it started to look familiar. I had watched it many years ago in 2D. So much better in 3-D.
