Tintin DVD Details

In less than one month Tintin will be on DVD and Blu-ray (actually, nowadays ¨Blu-ray and DVD” would be more proper), and the press release has come out giving us all the details as to what will be on it. I was a bit worried at one point because there were a lot of “making of” videos online, and I wanted some new stuff to be on the DVDs. Of course, I needn’t have worried. From “SuperHeroHype”:

 

THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN three-disc Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and two-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack include over 90 minutes of special features that take viewers behind-the-scenes with Spielberg and Jackson to discover how the filmmakers brought the characters to life, learn about Tintin’s origins, delve into the design and animation processes, explore the creation of Tintin’s faithful dog, Snowy, and much more. The film will also be available as a single-disc DVD. All Blu-ray and DVD releases available for purchase will be enabled with UltraViolet, a new way to collect, access and enjoy movies. With UltraViolet, consumers can add movies to their digital collection in the cloud, and then stream or download them – reliably and securely – to a variety of devices.

Ninety minutes of extra features!!! I am SO buying this! Not sure what it plans on saying about Tintin’s origins…It’ll probably just cover the album’s history, not make up a background for Tintin. I’m looking forward to this a lot…I have always loved watching special features, and motion capture films and animation films (or however you want to call them) often have some of the most fascinating special features, in my opinion.  We even get a section on John William’s score!

    Oh that’s just fantastic. I was totally looking forward to buying the nice, expensive version for the special features. Whups, not anymore!

    gdi, Blu-ray, get out of my life and stop ruining it.

    I know how you feel…I didn’t have a Blu-ray player for the longest time, even know the only one I have is on a laptop i hook up to my TV. But sooner or later everything will be Blu-ray, so it might be time to invest in one if you can. At least the normal dvd has this ´´The Journey of tintin and Snowy: from beginning to end”. Not sure how long that is though…

    I will probably stick to the original DVD myself. I don’t have a blu ray player, but if the time comes, as you suppose, I guess I’ll have to invest in one.

    Don’t have a blu-ray player…….how sad, but maybe if my cousin gets it on blu-ray/DVD, maybe I can watch it at his house. Wish they would still put the features on normal DVD though, at least half of what’s on blu-ray, seems unfair, really……oh well, I’ll live! Hope it’s out by my birthday, it’s the one thing I really want!

    Hey, good news! If you are interested in buying them, you can pre-order them for way less! Of course, I’ve found Amazon to over price things frequently anyway, but still…you can pre-order the 3D Blu-ray DVD, Blu-ray DVD, normal DVD and digital copy of the movie all in one combo pack for 27.99 dollars, rather than 55 dollars, which is what it will supposedly cost as of March 13th. If you only want the DVD, you can preorder that for 15.49 dollars instead of 30.
