Well, tell them that. BD-Live was already dying, and streaming wasn't here yet, so it was a last-ditch effort to avoid the disks.Ben wrote:Huh?
There's more than enough space on the discs themselves or to include another disc within the packs for Fantasia, Pocahontas and Lion King!
No, fans said they DID want to buy a 3D edition that wasn't the 5-disk Brave set for $45, they just didn't understand A) why Oz was coming out as a solo disk at all and B) why it was still the same $39 price as the packed-disk set--Oz had two issues: the SE flat version (two discs) and the single disc 3D, which was an experiment to see if 3D was selling (answer: no, hence Disney backing off the format in the US at least).
Most who did want "just" the 3D nagged Disney about wanting the 2D Blu as well (without the unnecessary DVD and the now-obsolete DC disk), to the point that Disney eventually admitted "okay, that didn't work" and offered a mail fix. And angry fans, still in paranoid Disney Is Evil(tm) mode, starting throwing around conspiracy theories that "They want to make us buy BOTH editions to get everything, the money-grubbing weasels! "
Meanwhile, Marvel and Pixar were allowed to put their own releases together, and while Disney grumbled at the "ungrateful" fanboys, Marvel's Guardians and Pixar's Monsters U figured out, aha, maybe if it was just the 2+3D at $24-29! Sayyyy...
The industry's picked up on this thump-on-the-head ever since, but Disney-proper's still been sulking in a corner, trying to tell us that "3D is dead!" while every other studio continues to release disks.
Pixar having no such tantrums, however, managed a perfectly nice 4-disk (3 + 2 + DVD + Bonus, with DC on a slip of paper) IO set selling for $29 on Amazon, even if, okay, they could have quit trying to promote the streaming site with exclusive "perks".
