With the news that home video is finally growing again, it’s the perfect time to point out that Frankenweenie is available today in the U.S., in both spinning plastic and digital versions.
The disc version comes in a bunch of different flavors — none of which I’ve tried firsthand. The basic DVD is just that. There’s a four-disc combo that includes Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and a digital copy, and a two-disc version with non-3D Blu-ray and DVD. (All links to Amazon.)
Digitally, the movie is on iTunes in both HD and SD incarnations. On the Mac and PC, the digital version includes special features, such as a new Sparky short.
Amazon has the digital version for purchase and rental, with HD available on Xbox and other platforms.
Animated movies don’t pay residuals like live-action movies, so you won’t be directly contributing any green envelopes in my future. But the more people who see it, the more likely it is we’ll be able to keep making odd little movies.
