Disney have set a June 1st release date for Alice in Wonderland on DVD and Blu-ray, which is only 3 months after it was released on the big screen. As I type it is still in the top 10 at the US box office, and has accumulated a gross of over $785 million worldwide.
You may remember that UK cinemas were threatening to boycott the film due to Disney’s plan to release the DVD 12 weeks after the theatrical release, instead of the usual 17 weeks. Odeon actually went ahead with a boycott, although it later agreed to show the film after agreeing a deal with Disney.
As for the DVD/Blu-ray, it will contain nine bonus features including “the making of the Futterwacken Dance, a look inside the world of the Mad Hatter and Johnny Depp’s transformation, Tim Burton’s vision for the movie and its characters, the visual effects of growing and shrinking of Alice, costume designs, music, stunts and more.”
