Monsters, Inc.

Disney has confirmed two street date changes, bumping the planned Spring Blu-ray releases of 'Monsters, Inc.' and 'Rounders.'

Just removed from the studio's upcoming schedule are the 10th anniversary re-issue of 'Rounders,' originally due April 14, and a two-disc deluxe set of Pixar's 'Monsters, Inc.', which had been planned for May 12.

The studio has not released an official statement on the reason for the delays, nor rescheduled new dates, though we have received word that 'Monsters, Inc.' is likely to re-emerge this November, in time for the video release of Pixar's latest theatrical feature, 'Up.'

As always, we'll keep you posted as soon as Disney confirms new dates for both titles.

In the meantime, we've moved both 'Monsters, Inc.' and 'Rounders' to the "Release Dates Postponed" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned.
