On December 4, 2012 prepare to experience “Finding Nemo” all over again as it will be released for the first time on Blu-Ray™. I recently had the opportunity to review the 3-Disc Combo Pack and I can honestly say that it is definitely a “sea”-worthy adventure.
Having owned a Blu-Ray™ player for sometime now, I was skeptical at how different it could be from the original DVD. But fear no more because I am happy to say that “Finding Nemo” is brilliantly adapted to Blu-Ray™. The colors and definition are awe-inspiring. The quality is beautiful. My kids were completely engrossed in the film; I have never seen them so still and zoned in on a movie before.
The bonus features are jam-packed and interesting to watch. Knick Knack, a theatrical short, is included and even though I have seen it many times before-it still makes me chuckle. It also includes: Aquarium-which is much like an animated wallpaper for your television. Aquarium features the opening of “Finding Nemo” with Nemo’s home and the anenome. When this feature came on-screen, my children thought the movie was going to start again as it looks identical to the title screen.
Why visit the aquarium when Disney∙Pixar’s “Finding Nemo Blu Ray” is swimming back into living rooms this holiday season? Releasing for the first time ever on Blu-Ray™ & Blu-Ray 3D™, this must-”sea”, must-own Oscar-winning underwater adventure will be available to own on December 4, 2012.
Prepare to immerse yourself in the stunning underwater world of “Finding Nemo”. This heartwarming tale will slash off your screen with brilliant digital picture, high definition sound and breathtaking 3D bonus features that will transport you and your loved ones beyond your wildest imaginations.
First released in theaters in 2003, “Finding Nemo” earned the Oscar® for Best Animated Feature Film and remains the fifth highest grossing animated film worldwide. In 2008, the American Film Institute named “Finding Nemo” among the 10 greatest animated films ever made and it is the second highest grossing Pixar film to date (behind “Toy Story 3″).
Featuring pristine high definition picture and sound, the Blu-ray creates an incredible at-home experience with a host of interactive features and bonus features including 3D Virtual Aquariums, 2D Virtual Aquariums, CineExplore, A Filmmakers’ Roundtable and more.
“Finding Nemo” will be available as a 5-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition (2 Blu-ray 2D + 1 Blu-ray 3D + 1 DVD + 1 Digital Copy), 3-Disc Collector’s Edition (2 Blu-ray 2D + 1 DVD), as well as 3D Digital & High-Definition Digital formats.

To coincide with the 3D theatrical re-release of the 2003 Disney•Pixar hit Finding Nemo and inanticipation of its Blu-Ray DVD debut, Disney Publishing Worldwide has released two exciting NEW apps — Finding Nemo: Storybook Deluxe and Finding Nemo Interactive Comic.
I turned my six-year-old son, Adam, loose with the iPad and said, “See what you can do!” He had a blast with Finding Nemo: Storybook Deluxe, because all the activities appealed to him. The story is told in panels, and the animation looks almost like clips from the film. Kids can choose to read each page silently, have the narrator (Albert Brooks, voice of Marlin) read to them, or—and my son really liked this option—record their own voice and play it back. Adam is an early reader, so he played around with it a bit, but then decided he wanted Mom’s voice on there. I think that feature’s great. If parents are away for whatever reason, kids can still hear Mom or Dad read them a bedtime story, or they can practice their own read-aloud skills.
On the heels of the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo in theaters this past Friday and in anticipation of the upcoming Finding Nemo Blu-Ray DVD release, Disney Publishing Worldwide announced today *two* exciting NEW apps — Finding Nemo: Storybook Deluxe and Finding Nemo Interactive Comic.
Kids can join Marlin and his forgetful friend, Dory, as they encounter hungry sharks, groovy turtles and other sea creatures in their quest across the ocean in search of Marlin’s lost son, Nemo. Through engaging narration, authentic underwater sound effects, and original graphics from the Academy Award winning movie, families can explore the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Harbor, and the world of reading together.
