20th Century Fox Home Entertainment announced today that Avatar will appear on Blu-ray and DVD on Earth Day, April 22, 2010. The home video release will be available in the US and Canada on that date, and to other markets on dates ranging from 4/21 to 5/6.
While the movie made headlines, and likely history, for its groundbreaking use of 3D visual effects, this initial home video release will be in standard 2D only. It is rumored that a 3D Blu-ray release will come in the future, no official details have been released so far.
The cover art for the Blu-ray/DVD package appears to the left, and pricing was not provided in the press release from 20th Century Fox. Amazon.com has the Blu-ray available for pre-order for $25 and the DVD is $16.99:
I've seen the movie twice in 3D, so it will be interesting to experience the movie in 2D and in a home theater environment. Will it hold up under those conditions, or did the 3D and the large-screen experience contribute to the awe-factor and impressions that Avatar left its audiences?
