Avatar 3D Blu-ray Finally Coming?

Rumor says 3D Blu-ray available in November with purchase of Panasonic 3D equipment.

Well, finally, Fox is putting Avatar on 3D Blu-ray. Isn’t that what this whole 3D thing is about?

Don’t get too excited, though. The rumor has not been confirmed by 20th Century Fox. Also, if those rumors are actually true, Hollywood in HiDef says the 3D Blu-ray will only be available with the purchase of Panasonic 3D equipment.

Lame!

Add that to what you already spent on the 2D Blu-ray, and it’s no wonder why James Cameron’s epic is the biggest money-maker of all-time.

The good news is: After a few months, the 3D Blu-ray of Avatar should hit shelves as a stand-alone purchase. Again, not confirmed, so there are no details, no list of extras (if any), no pricing and no release dates.

Sony is supposedly working on a similar deal, using a 3D Blu-ray of Alice in Wonderland as bait. That is expected sometime this fall.

Fox and Disney have yet to make any official 3D Blu-ray announcements for either title. Stay tuned!
