Disney releasing 8 Pixar titles on UHD Blu-ray today

10 Sep 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

In August, Disney released six Marvel titles on UHD Blu-ray. Today, it is releasing eight Pixar titles on UHD Blu-ray plus both versions of Aladdin. What's the rush?

Pixar films in 4K HDR

Disney has been hard at work repolishing all of its Marvel (MCU) and Pixar catalog titles for release on UHD Blu-ray. While not all of them have been recorded or rendered natively in 4K resolution, HDR grading and Dolby Atmos should nice upgrades. Today, Disney is releasing no less than eight Pixar titles on UHD Blu-ray: Brave, Cars, Cars 2, Finding Dory, Finding Nemo, Inside Out, Ratatouille, and The Good Dinosaur. The studio is also releasing both versions of Aladdin; the one from 1992 and the remake from 2019. They are all available today, September 10, in the US from retailers such as Amazon. The discs will arrive later in Europe.

Inside Out - Pixar

Next month, Disney will release Toy Story 4 on UHD Blu-ray. Although not confirmed officially by Disney, FlatpanelsHD has heard that it is the first Pixar film to be rendered in 4K resolution. What’s the rush? Why is Disney releasing so many of its classics and recent successes in bulk? We suspect that it is related to the launch of the company’s Disney+ streaming service later this year. Disney has promised to bring 4K Dolby Vision and Atmos to Disney+, and taking the monthly subscription price of $7 into account UHD Blu-ray discs may be a hard sell come November. In related news, Apple and Disney are rumored to launch Disney titles in 4K HDR on iTunes very soon, possibly later today. Here is the front page of iTunes (US) on our office iMac right now. Notice the ‘4K HDR’ banner on Aladdin.
