LWW & PC - Disney Blu-Ray & DVD Re-Release

Postby icarus » Sep 14, 2010 10:43 am

I guess it was fairly predictable that Walt Disney would re-release the first two movies on Blu-Ray and DVD to cash in on the launch of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but part of me thought that they wouldn't bother, or that they would maybe wait until Dawn Treader was out on DVD, and then do something then. But regardless, Amazon.com are listing new releases for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, both scheduled for release on September 28th 2010.

The Prince Caspian edition is listed as being a 2-Disc Blu-Ray with DVD, whilst the LWW edition is listed as just being a 2-Disc Blu-Ray. However you would probably assume it would be a similar Blu-Ray + DVD combo pack, as Disney (and most of the other studios) seem to be doing that with most of their new releases (Disney's Prince of Persia movie came out today in the UK in just such a format)

I doubt either set would contain any new special features or additional content, but at the very least i might expect new artwork. Hopefully they can get artwork for Prince Caspian which doesn't hideously misrepresent the movie, and hopefully they can get the two movies to have a vaguely matching aesthetic. It still annoys me no end that they didn't even try to maintain any packaging continuity with the LWW 2-Disc cover when it came to the Prince Caspian DVD release. But oh well.

Well, the new artwork they've got up for these releases on the Wal-Mart website seems to indicate there is nothing more than an added blue banner across the top to indicate it contains both the 2-Disc Blu-Ray and the DVD inside. Aside from that its the same movie poster cover for LWW, and the same mismatching misrepresentative cover for PC. Very disappointing if you ask me, and a missed opportunity from Disney.

Still, its a decent price to get both versions, if you don't already have either.
