Displaying items by tag: Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment 4K support
All right, we have one last post here at The Bits for this week... and it’s a bit of a bummer. But let me start at the beginning...
Early last week, I started to receive word from retail and industry sources that Disney had made an internal decision to suspend the 4K Ultra HD release of live action catalog titles from both their own vaults and those of their newly acquired 20th Century Fox label.
In essence, my sources said, beyond new release theatrical titles, animated fare from Disney and Pixar, or Star Wars and Marvel-related projects, there were no plans at the studio going forward to release titles on physical 4K Ultra HD—future releases would be 4K Digital only.
The rumor began to leak elsewhere online last weekend, so readers understandably started asking me about it.

Yes, it appears to be true: Disney appears to be quietly preparing to add their support for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format before the end of 2017. We have a few reasons to suspect this now, based on information from our sources, some of which we can talk about and some that we can’t. But we’ll get to what we can talk about in a moment.
First, though, our own Russell Hammond has just updated our Release Dates & Artwork section with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, whenever you order literally anything from Amazon after clicking through to them from any of our links on the site, you’re helping to support our work here at The Bits and we greatly appreciate it. I makes a real difference to our work, so thank you for supporting us in this way.
Now then, back to Disney; there are a number of reasons why we now suspect the studio is finally preparing to support the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format. [Read on here…]
