In a high-def first, Disney's August Blu-ray release of 'Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour' will feature 2-D and 3-D viewing modes.
An unstoppable phenomenon, the fictional Hannah Montana broke box office records this past January with 'Best of Both Worlds,' which saw hordes of teenage girls flooding theaters to the tune of over $40 million in receipts (unheard of for a live concert film).
Disney has set an August 19 street date for the Blu-ray version, day-and-date with the DVD (note that a CD/DVD version of 'Best of both Worlds' is due to hit stores next week, but only contains select video highlights of the show.)
Extras on the release include "The Ultimate Personal Tour" documentary (spend a day with Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers as they prepare for the concert), plus two bonus tracks ("Good And Broken" by Miley Cyrus, and the ABBA classic "SOS" by the Jonas Brothers).
Tech specs reveal Disney's plans to present a first-ever 3-D Viewing Mode on the disc, along with a 2-D version as well, both in 1080p video. Audio boasts uncompressed PCM 7.1 Surround audio.
Disney has set a suggested list price of $35.98 for the Blu-ray.
