Comments: As it's a Disney Studios released title, it's likely to be region free but no guarantees. It's also almost certainly going to be at least two disks, if not three (3D BD, 2D BD, Bonus Features or DVD, or both). Probably just two disks though.

Something I've been hoping for. A Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Steelbook to match the original trilogy steels. I think NA already had a steel before, not sure about the UK. Releases a week after the trilogy, for some reason.

Wow - that's super early for Maleficent. I ordered one, could always cancel later if I decide. But hey, it includes 3D, which Disney seems to be dissing the U.S./Canada on lately.
