This whole anti-3D thing could be the result of just the US home video division acting on it's own within the corporation. I believe some executive in Disney US marketing hates 3D for some reason (He...

Stop scratching because it appears the studios don't want to be bothered with putting out a bluray 3D disc that's not going to bring in mega bucks. They are giving up on 3D in the US. I hate to see...

Angry Disney can't be botherd by bluray 3D for USA audiences.
