hmm. it's no longer on the first page, makes me wonder if he posted it prematurely.

regardless, here's the full quote in case he takes down the page:

"Cars" will debut in Blu on Nov. 6, according to a Disney exec with whom I was just chatting.
This sounds like it will be a pretty special Blu-ray Disc release with director John Lasseter taking a very hands-on approach to the Blu bonus features (in addition to all the extras from last year's DVD).
The coolest-sounding BD extra is maybe the most elaborate BD-J interactivity yet called "Car Finder," allowing users to search for the more than 200 different cars featured in the movie and even race the clock to find a specific car in a frozen frame of film. Details of the makes and models of each car will also be accessible. (Sounds like a feature devised by reported car-nut Lassetter, doesn't it?)
All the featurettes and audio commentaries of the DVD, plus a previously unreleased Traffic School scene, are presented in a "Cinemavision" dashboard interface that allows users to view them any way they want, popping up during relevant parts of the movie or stand-alone.
Several of the shorts on the original DVD will be in hi-def on the Blu-ray version, which, by the way, I'm told is encoded in AVC.
And Disney is pricing it at $34.99, only $5 higher than last year's DVD edition. That DVD version was the big winner last night at the Entertainment Merchants Association's Home Media Expo in Las Vegas with three Home Entertainment Awards -- family, children's and sell-through title of the year.
Disney already reported yesterday (see my Tuesday blog) that they will be offering demos and hands-on play of the "Cars" bonus features at their 18-city road show tour of malls starting soon, so maybe some of you can feed us your early first-hand reports about the bonus features!

Interesting to see that this websites' header image now contains the text "Built for Blu-ray, Backed by Blu-ray supporters."

Finally a little more disclosure...
