At Disney’s D23 Expo, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer announced that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is also coming to glorious 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 3rd. In addition to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, this marks Disney’s 2nd 4k UHD Release, hopefully this is a sign that Disney is now fully aboard the 4K Bandwagon. My question and hope remains that this means Disney’s Movies Anywhere will also now stream in 4K UHD.

The day has finally come when Marvel and Disney finally jump on the 4K UHD Blu-ray bandwagon! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 will be Disney’s first official 4k UHD Blu-ray release. Sure you can purchase the Iron-Man Trilogy from some German distributor but some how I doubt that’s an official release, so I’m not going to count that. Guardians, coming out August 2nd, will be Marvel’s first official title. This is where I subtlety remind the Disney person that reads this article, that I own a really nice LG OLED 4K TV and a nice Samsung UHD player. Hint.

Disney’s juggernaut Beauty and The Beast is coming home to Blu-ray next week – June 6th. Of course there are a million exclusive editions! Steelbook version at Best Buy that’s $29 (are you kidding me?), a Target exclusive that includes a 32 page book and blah, blah. Come on Disney, stop screwing people. If I can’t get a full proper packaged version from ANY store, without feeling like I’m missing out on something, then screw them, I’ll just get the digital version and call it a day. I’m not jumping through hoops for this. I’m sure I probably won’t get my customary free copy after they read this. But honestly, Disney, you know I love you, but stop pulling this stupid crap.

I’m doing something a little different. Either you are moving forward or stuck in a rut. So I’m trying my hand at doing more YouTube videos and reviews. Here’s a video review of Disney’s Pinocchio Signature Edition Blu-ray. Bare with me while I get my YouTube Fu correct. I’m getting new equipment and beefing up my editing chops. But I’m also trying not to overthink this and make it harder on myself than it needs to be. Let me know what you all think.

Pinocchio is out on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere This Week. To celebrate check out these new bonus clips from the early days of Disney Animation that show Walt Disney’s process while creating Pinocchio! You can download it today. Have I said lately how much I adore Disney Movies Anywhere? Buy it once and it shows up on almost all Digital services including Ultraviolet, iTunes, Microsoft, PSN Network, Amazon and Google! The really cool thing is the extras are always included as well. I wish ALL studios would do this. Sick of having to choose between services. Disney gets mad props for going a step beyond in the way they treat their fans. Yes, I’m saying all of this because I expect my free review copy :). But come on Disney, 4K Man, 4K! Check out the clips. Pinocchio is out on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31.

It seems like this film just came out last month. I’m not complaining about shorter release windows, but this seems scary fast! But hey, it was April, this summer has blown by.
