BD Live for All Disney Blu-ray Releases after October

We read over at interesting article at Video Business an article that notes Disney studio president Bob Chapek stating that all future Disney-branded Blu-ray releases after Sleeping Beauty would feature BD Live elements.

That statement covers all titles within the Walt Disney Studios and Pixar theatrical and catalog vault, likely including the Blu-ray release of Pixar’s Wall-E, which is in cinemas on June 27. Disney-distributed titles from content partners such as Touchstone, ABC and Miramax might also feature BD Live. Sleeping Beauty is scheduled for release on Blu-ray on October 7th.

“We are making our entrance grand,” Chapek said of the studio’s BD Live launch. “Every subsequent Disney title will have BD Live. [This may] push the studios to reach new heights that have never been before imagined.”

Sleeping Beauty is looking like one of the most comprehensive BD Live titles yet, including in-movie chatting, online gaming, personalized video messaging and e-commerce features. So far many of the major studios’ first such releases have included one or two Web-enabled extras such as the online fighter game on Lionsgate’s War Blu-ray release.

I imagine that the one feature that will be on all Disney Blu-ray discs is the e-commerce feature…!

    yea, no surprise they plan to put it on all titles from October on out… I actually figured that just like Sony has tried to do with BD-Live on their titles… even some back catalogue titles
