Default Two-Disc 'Monsters, Inc.' Coming to Blu-ray this May

Two-Disc 'Monsters, Inc.' Coming to Blu-ray this May

Disney and Pixar have set a Blu-ray date for 'Monsters, Inc.', which will make its high-def debut this May with multiple exclusives and bonus features.

Originally announced at CES for Blu release, but with no exact date or specs, Pixar (via Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment) has confirmed a May 19 next-gen release for the animated blockbusters.

A two-disc set, the feature film will receive a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

Bonus features spread across both discs will see all of the same extras found on the previous special edition DVD version, including a filmmaker commentary, two short films, outtakes, and a behind-the-scenes "Human's World" tour of Pixar.

New to the Blu-ray is a "Filmmakers' Roundtable" discussion, "Go Seek: Building Monstropolis in Tokyo" featurette, an original story treatment, and BD-Live connectivity.

Also included on a third standard DVD disc is a Digital Copy of the film (in standard-def) compatible with PCs, PSP and iTunes.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $40.99.

I posted this topic because it wasn't linked to in the news or created yet.

but, while i'd love to buy this for my family, i just think it is very overpriced. This is a movie that ought to be no more than $34.95 list price. $41 is too expensive.

(yes i know you can get it for $27 on sale, but you can get the $35 list titles for about $22 on amazon, sometimes $20)

Why are prices going up in this economy instead of lower? it's insane.

Wow, catalog title and just way too pricey. Disney/Pixar is definitely NOT getting my moneh with this kind of strategy.
Such a shame, I was looking forward to it and all.
