    Amazon Prime is your friend. I get free shipping in two days with it.

    I used it as a free trial but forgot to change it so they wouldn't renew it and not charge me $80/year. But I use Amazon a lot and I get my items a lot quicker so the frustration about my forgetfulness was quickly subsided.

    Don't forget Amazon Prime also gives you 1 day shipping for just $3.99 per order. My brother ordered something from Amazon for Xmas and used 1 day shipping and it was at the house in less than 24 hours. Amazon just flat out rocks when it comes to shipping.

    I must live close to an Amazon warehouse because I'm a Prime member and I get every single order the next day...free. :)

    Beauty and the Beast, Lion King 3D Blu-ray in the Fall
    Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed that in the fall of 2011 it will release two of its modern animated classics as 3D Blu-ray / 2D Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy combo packs: The Lion King 3D and Beauty and the Beast 3D. As previously reported (see Blu-ray.com, September 2, 2010), both movies had been converted to 3D with a view to a theatrical release.

    Other Disney movies mentioned as coming soon to 3D Blu-ray include Bolt (already released on 3D BD overseas), Chicken Little, G-Force, Meet the Robinsons and The Nightmare before Christmas.

    Buy a Panasonic 3D Blu-ray Player, Get Avatar 3D Blu-ray Free
    Panasonic has expanded its Avatar 3D Blu-ray promotion, making it even easier for 3D enthusiasts to get the 3D BD edition of James Cameron's epic without paying extortionate prices on eBay. For a limited time, if you buy a Panasonic DMP-BDT100 3D-compatible Blu-ray player, you will receive a bonus copy of the Avatar 3D disc via mail-in rebate.

    Buyers of a Panasonic HDC-SD750K 3D camcorder or the 3D Home Theater Systems SC-BTT750 or SC-BTT350 also qualify.

    To qualify, you must have purchased the device between the dates of January 2, 2011 and March 26, 2011.

    Alternately, when you purchase a Panasonic Viera 3D TV, you can get a 3D Starter Kit (including two pairs of 3D glasses and the 3D Blu-ray edition of Avatar) and your choice of a free Panasonic DMP-BDT100 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc player, or $249.95 towards the purchase of an SC-BTT350 3D Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System. This was the original promotion announced by Panasonic in late 2010.

    I wonder if the 3D versions of those films will include the special features that their 2D counterparts have or if they'll be barebones versions of those films.

    Star Wars Saga Blu-ray Announced
    As anticipated, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment officially announced today the Blu-ray release of Star Wars for September 2011. The studio will release the saga in three distinct sets "to meet the needs of every Star Wars fan: Star Wars: The Complete Saga (a nine-disc set including all six films, priced at $139.99; Star Wars: Prequel Trilogy (a three-disc set including Episodes I-III, priced at $69.99); and Star Wars: Original Trilogy (a three-disc set including Episodes IV-VI, priced at $69.99).

    Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray will feature all six live-action Star Wars feature films utilizing the highest possible picture and audio presentation, along with three additional discs and more than 30 hours of extensive special features including never-before-seen deleted and alternate scenes, an exploration of the exclusive Star Wars archives, and much more.

    Contrary to what some hoped and others feared, no 3D Blu-ray announcement was made.

    The preorder for the Complete saga is already up at Amazon, at $89.99, or just $15 per movie. The Prequel Trilogy and the Original Trilogy, in turn, go for $44.99 (again, $15 per movie).

    Two Month Delay for A.I. Blu-ray

    Paramount has changed the street date for the Blu-ray edition of A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Originally slated for a February 15 release (see Blu-ray.com, December 6, 2010) Steven Spielberg's dark sci-fi fairy tale will now come out on BD on April 12. Technical specifications and special features are unchanged.

    No surprise that the 3D versions weren't announced, considering that the 3D versions won't be coming out until 2012 in theaters.

    I take it Episodes 4, 5 & 6 are the versions with the added CGI.

    Just preordered...I don't hate the special editions as much as others so I don't mind rebuying this on Blu-ray. Now if only they would release an Indiana Jones boxset.

    Well Star Wars is Fox and Indiana Jones is Paramount. But yeah I hope Paramount releases the Indy boxset later this year.

    So the Star Wars will be available in a 6 movie set + special features, an original trilogy set, a prequel trilogy set, and 6 individual movies?

    It didn't say anything about individual movie releases, so probably not each film separately (unless that's meant to just be a given).

    Oh... I saw "or just $15 per movie" and assumed there would be individual movies too

    I think that meant they'd be $15 a piece if you broke down the price of each film in the boxset.

    My mom has Amazon Prime, she loves it. I should try it out.

    Turns out my Amazon order was delayed because The A-Team was sold out, and they were holding the whole order until it was back in stock. But they never sent me an email to say it would be delayed, so they bumped it up to one-day shipping and I got everything yesterday. :up:

    I think that 20th Century Fox and Paramount are just distributors of Star Wars and Indiana Jones (just like how Paramount just simply distributes the early Marvel Studios films and Dreamworks Animation films), while LucasFilm owns them and pretty much does everything with them. Hence why we see Warner Bros. handling the distribution regarding Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

    Everything regarding those two series is up to the Great Neckbeardus.

    If Star Wars and Indiana Jones are out at the end of the year, this may be the best Christmas ever. :awesome:
