Finally – Avatar Getting Full 3D Blu-Ray Release

Panasonic were offering a 3D Blu-ray version of Avatar to those who bought their equipment, as part of a mail in voucher scheme. That expired this March so I suspected a full release for the disc would be imminent.

And so it is. Fox have announced that a 2-disc Blu-ray set offering a 3D BD version of the theatrical cut will be released on October 15th in the UK, 16th in the US.

Shame that the extended edition won’t be included – hopefully, a few years from now, I’ll be able to bring that home in 3D too.

I’m assuming the film will fit on one disc and the other will contain supplements.

Though, having said that, the pack shot refers to it being a triple-play edition, so the second disc may well be just the DVD. Will there be an anaglyph version of the film on the DVD for those not up to speed with 3D sets and the like? I sincerely doubt it. Cameron’s not going to want to compromise the quality of his stereography like that.

I’m looking forward to this release a great deal. Here’s hoping there’s some good supplements about the 3D format and processes too.

Here’s a video that James Cameron posted to the film’s Facebook page to make the announcement and show some new featurette-y material.
