Disney to support Blu-ray Disc

Disney is weighing in on the next-generation DVD format battle with its support of the Blu-ray Disc format.

Nice! Disney’s library carries a *lot* of weight. This is all the ‘Disney Classics’, all the Pixar films (Oh, I’d love a direct digital HD transfer of those) – Walt Disney Home Entertainment, Hollywood Pictures, Touchstone, Miramax (Kevin Smith!), Dimension, and Buena Vista. So it is Disney, MGM, Columbia Tri-Star, and Sony Pictures up against Paramount, Universal, Warner, and New Line – with Fox on the fence, but seeming to lean towards Blu-ray. With the split in studio support, the weight of the industry support really puts Blu-ray out ahead, IMHO.
