I don't see any way it could. It looks like the worldwide gross right now is around $40M. The budget was around $150M. I don't think the $150M includes it, so tack on another $30M for P & A and they're $140M in the hole right now. Even at $25 a pop, that's sales of 5.6 million dvds/blu-rays. I don't see that happening.
Wow... didn;t realize how terribly this film did in theaters till just now. A $150 mill budget and it made under $37 mill. Doubt DVD/Blu sales will even come close to making up that difference. Reviews for the film were quite bad too.
This was the studio's last movie and it bombed in the box office too. Pretty sad. I didn't watch the movie in theatres due to in part of the marketing being eh and unexciting. I still feel like watching this movie though as a big Disney fan.
