Five Pixar movies are getting the 4K treatment from Disney this week. On March 3, 4K Blu-rays of Up, Monsters Inc., Monsters University, Wall-E, and A Bug’s Life are hitting shelves for the first time.
Each of the Pixar Collector’s Edition 4K Blu-rays comes with a 4K UHD Blu-ray, a standard 1080p Blu-ray, and a 4K UHD digital copy of the film, redeemable through the cloud-based digital platform Movies Anywhere. The 4K UHD releases are also newly available in Dolby Atmos surround sound. There aren’t any new special features on these discs, but the 4K Blu-rays include all of the extras that were featured in the movies’ original Blu-ray releases.
In addition to the Collector’s Edition Blu-rays, Disney partnered with Best Buy on exclusive SteelBook cases for each of the Pixar 4K Blu-rays. These new cases aren’t quite as cool as the Best Buy-exclusive Knives Out SteelBook, but they’re still very nice. Check them all out in the gallery below.
These five movies are just the latest Pixar movies to be upgraded to 4K UHD Blu-ray. In September, eight titles got their own 4K Blu-ray releases: Brave, Cars, Cars 2, Finding Dory, Finding Nemo, Inside Out, Ratatouille, and The Good Dinosaur. Disney has offered similar 4K Collector’s Editions for Disney animated movies like Tangled and Moana, as well as its live-action remakes like Aladdin and The Lion King.
It’s also worth noting that every Pixar movie is available to stream in 4K UHD on Disney Plus.
