After a lukewarm reception to its latest 3D movie, Disney has revealed specs of the upcoming Alice in Wonderland Blu-ray, and it will not have a 3D presentation.

Disney's remake of the classic animated film from over 50 years ago will be coming out on Blu-ray later this year. As the first major 3D release from the studio since the explosion of home 3D entertainment, it is interesting to see that there is no planned 3D content on the disc.

The 3D Blu-ray Disc that everyone is talking about is, of course, Avatar. People are flocking to the stores for that movie, but the initial BD release does not contain 3D functionality. That will come with a later release.

Unlike Avatar, however, Disney has announced no plans to create a different Blu-ray version of Alice in Wonderland with 3D.

Although the film has done quite well at the box office, Alice was greeted with mediocre reviews and even worse comments about the 3D effects, which were added after the movie was shot and not part of the original production plan.

The Alice Blu-ray that was announced is not a bare-bones release either. It is a three-disc combo pack with tons of extra goodies, so a later 3D release seems unlikely, at least at this point.

It brings up questions about the viability of 3D in the home market. Consumers are sitting out there with a brand new 3D TV and no 3D content to watch. If other studios become as discerning as Disney, it could stifle consumer adoption.
