Now then… it’s not mentioned in the press release, but Best Buy will offer a retail-exclusive version of the 4K Ultra HD packaged in a Steelbook case with a Blu-ray 3D version of the film. On a possibly not unrelated note, it’s worth mentioning that the title is showing as “currently unavailable” on Amazon.com, so it could be that Amazon intends to pull another one of its 800-lb gorilla leveraging efforts against Disney on this release. In any case, here’s what the 4K Ultra HD packaging looks like…
