Walt Disney Studios announced today at the CES 2010 to release Disney Digital 3D content for the home on Blu-ray Disc beginning in 2010 with Disney's A Christmas Carol and a special 3D Showcase Disc.

The 3D-enabled Blu-ray release of Disney's A Christmas Carol, available broadly in fourth quarter of 2010, will represent the studios' debut title that will launch a new premium line-up of Disney Digital 3D movies for the home. Disney's A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carrey, will be a groundbreaking multi-sensory, three-dimensional hi-def home entertainment experience that captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale. Re-envisioned by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Best Director, Forrest Gump, 1994), Disney's A Christmas Carol will be sure to mesmerize audiences of all ages in its new technologically-advanced digital 3D home video presentation.

In addition to the anticipated release of Disney's A Christmas Carol, and in an effort to provide early adopters with premium content that optimally showcases their new 3D home theater systems with Disney 3D content, Disney has also created an exclusive 3D Showcase Disc available for mass distribution. This new 3D Showcase Disc is a compilation of upcoming 3D product, footage and promotional trailers that contains a variety of vividly mesmerizing clips from Disney's 3D content library including but not limited to, Walt Disney's 1953 animated short "Working for Peanuts," promotional trailers of upcoming 3D-enabled Blu-ray releases like Disney's A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland and Disney-Pixar's Toy Story 3 plus original content created exclusively for this disc. The new 3D Showcase Disc is now available for manufacturers to start placing orders so they may bundle with their 3D hardware.

3D Blu-ray Players and 3D TVs are required to enjoy 3D content at home. Electronics companies announced a solid line-up of 3D enabled gear at the CES 2010.
As it looks there is also 3D content coming in 2010. ESPN launches ESPN 3D and DirecTV starts three 3D HD channels.
Now it is up to you if you jump on 3D in the living room.
