Post 127: A Spooky New Blu-ray Coming in... Summer? UPDATE!

Hi everyone! On October of 2013 Pixar made their first television special (Not including the Buzz Lightyear show) on ABC and later on a number of other channels. Now get ready for Pixar's Halloween tale coming this summer.
"One of the more common questions we received after Toy Story of TERROR! was aired on television last fall was, "where can I watch it again"? Today we have learned that the release of Pixar's first 30-minute television special on Blu Ray / DVD (along with a slew of extras) will be released on August 19, 2014. In addition to Toy Story of TERROR!, the release will also contain the previous set of Toy Story Toons - Partysaurus Rex, Hawaiian Vacation and Small Fry." -P. P.
Below is a list of the special features included on Blu-Ray:
  • Feature - Toy Story of TERROR! (22:00)
  • “Toy Story Toons” Shorts (All on Blu-ray Before)
    • Hawaiian Vacation (5:50)
    • Small Fry (7:07)
    • Partysaurus Rex (6:31) (First Time on DVD)
  • Audio Commentaries
    • Toy Story of Terror! (NEW!)
    • Hawaiian Vacation (On Pixar Shorts Vol. 2)
    • Small Fry (On Pixar Shorts Vol. 2)
    • Partysaurus Rex (NEW!)
  • Team of Specialists (NEW!)
    • Director Angus MacLane goes deep behind the scenes to introduce the team of specialists required to make Toy Story OF TERROR!
  • 3 Deleted Scenes + Editor Introductions (NEW!)
    • Pencil Topper Trilogy
    • Travel Brochures
    • Road Trip Roulette
  • Vintage Toy Commercials + Director Introductions (NEW!)
    • Old Timer
    • Combat Carl
    • Transitron
  • D23 Teaser (First Time not shown in D23)

These toys are celebrating/shocked that they're bonus features, too.

"It should be noted that there is a difference between the Blu Ray and DVD releases - the DVD version does not contain the 3 additional deleted scenes with editor introductions. It also appears that the Disney Movies Anywhere edition won't contain the audio commentary tracks.
Additionally, on August 19 as well, be sure to also log into Disney Movies Anywhere (online or app) to view all of the special features above as well as two extra bonus features listed below (only available through Disney Movies Anywhere).
  • A new short piece about film references featuring Mr. Pricklepants
  • Deleted Scene – Bob's Boatyard w/Editor’s Introduction (2:00)" -Pixar Post
I remember always trying find the easter eggs and having a hard time. Well now I can have a better time finding them on HD and by pausing. I'm can't wait to see the new extras! Also, I have some videos to help pass the time with the trailer, the Disney Channel trailer, and the funny Sky Movies ad. UPDATE: Pixar has released a Blu-ray trailer, you can watch it here right now! Also you can now pre-order it! So you can make sure you get the special on Blu-ray or DVD!
I also want to add that it's weird that the Blu-Ray comes out in Summer instead this October. Anyways, it is coming August 19th, 2014 on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Copy. See you soon!

Will you buy the Blu-ray and do you think that they should have put it out in fall?
