A lightning-quick trip from the local multiplex to the home entertainment market place is what Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has in planned with a three-SKU helping of director Peter Sohn’s The Good Dinosaur on Feb. 23.
The ARR is a dazzling fast pace of just 88 days — which matches Disney’s previous quickie — Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland back in 2010 — that’s for any film grossing in excess of $100 million. Ticket sales currently stand at $119.3 million, which came in a little lighter than expected, but solid enough to translate positively when it comes to DVD and Blu-ray sales (plus assorted merchandise).
Planned for delivery on Feb. 23 are a stand-alone DVD edition and two Blu-ray/DVD Combo Packs — one with and one without a 3D viewing option.
Bonus nuggets appear to be limited to the Blu-ray editions. These kick off with Toy Story 3, Up, The Incredibles, etc.), director of photography/lighting Sharon Calahan and supervising technical director Sanjay Bakshi.
There are deleted scenes, the Oscar-nominated short animated film titled Sanjay’s Super Team, five featurettes, an animation promo clip and something called “Dino Bites” (not sure what that is).
