[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

A princess, a tower and a shimmering mane of golden locks longer than three football pitches… There’s only one possible fairytale that fits this bizarre description, and it’s Disney’s ‘Tangled’.

In anticipation of its debut on Blu-ray Disc later in the year, Walt Disney Pictures has released a plethora clips from the release and TheHDroom has scooped up the best bits in a sneak peek of what to expect.

An alternate opening, two featurettes and fun fact shorts are all that’s been revealed so far, but if these are anything to go by the bonus features for the expected BD3D and 2D BD versions of the movie will be a rollercoaster ride of fun for the whole family.

TheHDroom has the full catalogue of clips, but we’ve included the alternate opening one below for your amusement. If you’ve seen the movie in cinemas, let us know what you think!

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

Light Cycle? Check. Identity Disc? Check. Super Play Blu-ray Disc Edition of ‘Tron: Legacy’ with a 3D copy? Check.

With film forums and movie blogs awash with rumours on the content and artwork for Walt Disney’s BD release of ‘Tron: Legacy’, we’re happy to report official details on the 3D Super Play version on sale in the UK from 18th April and the rest of Europe soon after.

Rebellious teenager Sam (Garrett Hedlund) is still haunted 20 years on from the mysterious disappearance of his father and leading video game developer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges). On receiving a message from his father’s former workplace, Sam’s quest to find the truth sends him spiraling into a computer generated world with flying motorbikes, space age weapons and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent his return to reality.

Arriving in a combo pack comprising BD3D, 2D BD and a digital copy of the movie, special features include, ‘The Next Day: Flynn Lives Revealed’, ‘Launching the Legacy’, ‘Visualizing TRON’, ‘Installing The Cast’ and ‘Derezzed’ music video performed by soundtrack producers Daft Punk.

Movieweb meanwhile has previews of what US fans can expect upon its release in various guises across the pond from early April, including a mammoth five BD box set including illuminating Light Disc.

Sweden’s Blu-ray Forum launches BD3D retailer certification scheme

Last year we brought you news that Sweden’s Blu-ray Forum and HDTV Forum had teamed up with electronics association ‘Elekronick Branschen’ to create an education programme for retailers on all aspects of Blu-ray. With the aim of training staff to a high level of knowledge on HD and Blu-ray Disc technology, the scheme has successfully certified 74% of stores in Sweden so far.

But it doesn’t stop there. Keen to keep in touch with the very latest advancements, the scheme is expanding to include a brand new section devoted to 3D Blu-ray Disc technology. Retailers that succeed in this new part of the certification programme receive the pictured badge and door sticker, so consumers know they can expect good service from knowledgeable staff.

Given a significant rise in the popularity of 3D in 2010, and with 3D BD players and offerings like ‘A Christmas Carol 3D’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland 3D’ hitting the shelves come Christmas, this is great news for retailers and consumers alike, and Swedish shoppers can be confident their questions on BD3D will be answered quickly and effectively.

On its completion in Sweden, the full programme will be rolled out in other Scandinavian countries, starting with Denmark. If you would like more information on the scheme, please contact the Blu-ray Forum.
