Two new titles are coming to Disney Blu-ray with the up-coming release of this year’s DisneyNature film, Chimpanzee, coming out on August 21, 2012. Also coming out is the 1977 classic, Pete’s Dragon, making it’s Blu-ray debut on October 22, 2012. No news yet on extras for either.
Chimpanzee was the latest film from the DisneyNature line, and tells the store of Oscar, the young chimp who is miraculously adopted by the leader of his tribe after his mother dies. Narrated in the US by Tim Allen, Chimpanzee went on to have the best opening weekend for a nature documentary ever in North American with 10.2 million dollars.
Pete’s Dragon (1977) was the first Disney film recorded in the Dolby Sound system and has been a hit with Disney fans over the decades. Telling the story of young Pete and his dragon Elliot, this animation/ live-action hybrid has been released a number of times earlier on VHS and DVD, but makes it’s first jump onto a High Def format.
