I see even Chicken Little is slated for Blu-ray 3D release by 11/8. Are we promised a release date for UP in 3D as well? Is it being bundled as a promo? Is it even available from a foreign market like the Bolt Blu-ray 3D has been for many months now even though its U.S. release is only now scheduled?

Up was not a 3D movie.

Actually, it was Pixar's first 3D movie.

"Up" was a 2009 native 3D release.

Also it's CGI so even if it wasn't already rendered all that is needed is 3D rendering and it would be a TRUE 3D film.

Plus here is the original 3D movie poster art.

Oops, it was. Had to look it up. It was listed as Disney Digital 3D.

OK All, now that we have a consensus that UP was a 3D move, - can anyone shed any light on the initial questions? Even a rumor would be welcome. (This inquiry was prompted by seeing that "Chicken Little" was finally coming out as a Blu-ray 3D so I guess we have a partial answer to the proverbial question, "Which was first, the Chicken or the egg 'UP' and easy over?")

You sure they're converting it and no re-rendering it?

No way Pixar would just convert. Steve may be gone be he would be livid with such a low quality sort cut decision.

The movie was originally a 2D production. So they are converting it to 3D . . . by re-rendering it.

Not to threadcrap but I saw Up in theaters in 3D.
If I wasn't wearing 3D glasses, I would never knew I was watching a 3D movie.

Something tells me it would be better at home so I would end up getting anyway.

Yeah a lot of theatres have crappy 3D just for the extra cash it brings them. They're not worried about quality. From now on it's gotta be Real 3D or Imax 3D for me

Just ordered the UK version off Amazon.co.uk. Sucks this Blu-ray isn't available stateside yet, and not even announced yet. But, based on some impressions posted on Blu-ray.com's forum, it's a stunner. Love this movie, so had to order it.

Yeah, I got it on Saturday and watched it that night. I loved it. Region free. I don't know why this didn't get US release at the same time... other than they're saving it for the release of the next Pixar movie in the theater and will package some kind of movie money with it... or something.

This is a bit off topic but speaking of Amazon UK, is there a region free version of Sammys adventures?

No, it's only free shipped within UK. Total with shipping was about $27. It would've been about that much over here anyway. Only difference is that I can't redeem disneyrewards code since that's only for UK. If anybody in UK wants the code then I can give it.

It took one week to get here from UK so zero complaint from me.

DualEdge: > Actually, it was Pixar's first 3D movie.

We saw it theatrically in 3D. Christie DLP. RealD passive.

My guess at the time was that Pixar probably started production in 2D, and then was commanded by The Mouse to switch to 3D. That's pretty straightforward for fully modeled CGI content. They might have had to scrap some digital mattes (which would otherwise be too obviously flat).

The use of 3D in "Up" was not compelling except in a couple of shots, and whatever 3D added did not compensate for the luminance loss. "Up" in 3D, as with all the 3D I've seen so far, was visually deeper but darker (in both senses of the word) compared to the 2D.

The darkness is entirely due to the limitations of the majority of today's stereovision projection and display technologies. Until that gets fixed, I'm in no hurry to see any more 3D.

That's a fair opinion but not shared by me.
Seeing Toy Story 1-3 in 3D is like watching a totally different film.
It's a whole new experience.

No one is suggesting it replace the 2D version, but 3D has its place and I'm very satisfied with it.

Of course I've had better experiences at home.
At the theater, its about 50%, home, 95%.

So to those who imported it, was it worth it?

I'm on the fence...

Are either of the shorts (Dug's Special Mission and Partly Cloudy) presented in 3-D on the BD?

Partly Cloudy was originally in 3-D in when it played with Up in theaters.

Unfortunately no. Only the movie was on the 3D disc. The other contents were on the normal 2D blu-ray disc.
