It seems the popularity of vinyl has caused Disney to rethink how it sells its films on DVD and Blu-ray.

Disney is looking to make its movies more collectible by taking a design cue from vinyl. 'Disney Big Sleeve' is the result, which sees DVDs and Blu-rays coming in 12-inch sleeves, just like a record.

The 12in Big Sleeve cases are designed to be collectors' items that you'd show-off like a record sleeve rather than tuck away on the shelf.

Each release features both DVD and Blu-ray versions of the film, plus exclusive 12in art prints. You'll also get the typical extras such as deleted scenes and commentaries; all packaged inside an eye-catching, super-size sleeve.

All six are set for release on 28th November but are available for pre-order from Zavvi now, each priced £19.99 (RRP £29.99).

Next thing to try....

is bring back Laserdisc !!! then Disney will have something to fill up all the empty space contained within this oversized and wastefull packaging.

These will look pretty stupid on the shelf along side your existing dvd and bluray cases.

Wacko
