Disney Teases Finding Nemo Blu-ray

Posted October 5, 2011 03:31 PM by Josh Katz

Walt Disney StudiosOn the heels of their announcement to re-release Finding Nemo theatrically in 3D, Walt Disney Studios has now teased a Blu-ray edition of the same film.

The story of a neurotic clownfish (Albert Brooks, Out of Sight) who teams up a blue tang suffering from short-term memory loss (Ellen DeGeneres, Doctor Dolittle) in order to locate his missing son, Finding Nemo is the last full-length Pixar production not available in high-definition and the studio's second-highest grossing theatrical feature. It earned $339,714,978 domestically, which is just under Toy Story 3's domestic gross of $415,004,880.

The minute-long teaser has Brooks and DeGeneres' characters swimming towards a faint blue light which ultimately turns into a "Disney Blu-ray" graphic. At the end of the clip, title cards read, "Finding Nemo: For the First Time Ever on Disney Blu-ray."

No further details are known, either on the disc's eventual release date or on its possible technical and supplementary specifications.

@The Bluray King: Just take the upcoming date for the theatrical re-release and add a few weeks. I'd guess that'd be pretty darn close to the BD date.

@mdl - No, Toy Story 2 was the "Star Wars of Pixar". (Ie., the influential game-changer that drove everyone into an absolute mania, and trying to find "serious" explanations for liking something they'd never seen before.)
Incredibles was the Empire Strikes Back, where everyone tried to build up the "serious/dark" explanations, but Finding Nemo was more like the Lion King of Pixar:
Good-looking visuals, average story, but caught an implausibly lucky box-office break from cultural zeitgeist at the time that made everyone with selective memories of it praise it to the highest marble pedestal.

I can't imagine they'd be teasing this a full year in advance of a Blu-ray release. It'd probably also make more sense for them to release it 2D-only in early 2012 and then try and get people to double-dip with a 3D release after the theatrical 3D run.

Since I couldn't care less about a 3D release, that's certainly what I'm hoping for. The sooner I can get this on Blu-ray, the better.

Toy Story was Pixar's Star Wars--the one that started all. And though the jury's still out, the original Cars has the best chance of becoming their Citizen Kane--the one that was derided when it first came out, but over the years proved to be pure genius. (Edit: So does that make Cars 2 their Magnificent Ambersons? ) Finding Nemo is more like their Titanic or Avatar.

@Boothill - Well, it WAS, TOO!
'03 was the year -absolutely nothing- from the major studios became a summer hit (Hulk, Terminator 3, 2Fast, Charlie's Angels 2), so we all went to see Nemo. Nemo may not have been any better or worse than Toy Story 3 when THAT one became a runaway hit in an empty summer, but at the time, being an adult and going public about the fact that you liked Pixar films was still a new and trendy thing. (Incredibles didn't come out till the year after, and Monsters, Inc had been overshadowed by Shrek-mania.) Add to the fact that Pixar was still "at war" with Disney's Eisner troubles, and it seemed like Pixar's hits were rebelling against Disney as well as the big studios.
The national mania to thumb your nose at the studio blockbusters by wearing your Pixar freak-flag high and cheering Nemo on may have....colored our memories of the movie somewhat. Crush, Dory and the Seagulls notwithstanding.

It did a few glances to try and find this info, but I didn't seem to catch it. Forgive me if it's obvious, and just point me int the right direction.

How did Disney release this video? Just YouTube? On The Lion King Blu-Ray? Did they send it to Bluray.com? What?

Disney is the leader at teasing far, FAR in advance; a year isn't remotely unusual for the studio. They've one or two of the Tinkerbells closer to 2 years ahead of release. And wasn't it this time last year, when "official" word of the The Lion King first came out?

I'm just saying: I wouldn't get my hopes up for a release too early next year. I only hope, as long as it's taken, that they've remastered the film, rather than fixing the master's banding problems during compression, as was reported to be Disney's intent a few years ago, as VC1 (and maybe AVC by now) has an dithering process designed for just that purpose. Since it's being converted to 3D, I would assume it's being remastered as well. But logic doesn't always mesh with Corporate Hollywood.

Namely, "DisneyMovies" has already got their own YouTube channel for legit trailers and promo clips, just so everybody else on the Tube doesn't pirate/scoop theirs.
Sometimes, it's the only way you know you ARE getting the real trailer, and not somebody's fan-fake.

Disney has no issues at all previewing stuff WAY before it hits streets. Take a look at Planes, it was announced earlier this year for a Spring 2013 release on Blu-ray. When I heard about that I thought it was a misprint, but alas it wasn't. They had an encode ready for this on Blu-ray years ago, I talked to the guys that did it. But here we are, still just waiting.

My prediction about a possible release date:
either:
- March 2012 (tie in with theatrical release of John Carter - directed by Andrew Stanton) (2D only)
- June/ July 2012 (day and date with John Carter BD, also tie in with theatrical release of Brave) (2D only)
- November 2012 (day and date with Brave BD) (2D & 3D combo packs)

Although I have a feeling they might release a 2D combo pack early in the year, advertise the 3D version coming soon, then in the fall do a 3D release.

After the success of Lion King in theatres. All the really popular Disney movies are going to get this treatment. I heard on the radio they are making 3D Nemo, Little Mermaid and two others I can't recall off hand.

Lion King made $100 million dollars and it costs them from what I heard $10 million to do the 3D conversion. Basically Lion King's profit is going to pay for these four movies which could in turn all be profit then, up to maybe 1/2 billion dollars.

I hate it to, but Disney can do the math, and the $$$ makes the stockholders want to see it happen. Regardless of how you feel about them doing this the classics.

Just because The Lion King was a success in 3D does not mean that other Disney films will convert that well. TLK had a scope and majesty to it (except for the two comic relief characters) that lends it self superbly for 3D. Even in 2D the image has always looked multi-dimensional. Nemo might be different story. The backgrounds are basically blue (water). There may not be as much opportunity for the Pixar folks to add depth. What I hope they don't do is go for the cheap addition and have everything popping out of the screen.

Going with the same release date as Lion King but 1 year later. In the 3D re-release announcement they mentioned Nemo in September so that would be similar to the Lion King Blu-ray release and theater re-release.
