Update: An official announcement has been made by the studio which fills out the extra features, detailed below, and confirms a slipcover and second disc with a digital copy will be included.
Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release the $140 million box office hit Mamma Mia! The Movie December 16 on Blu-ray Disc, day-and-date with DVD.
Mamma Mia! will be presented in widescreen 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
A new twist is being put on commentaries with a Blu-ray exclusive sure to turn heads. With Mamma Mia!, it will be possible to record a video commentary while watching the film and then share that commentary with friends.
There are some missing details to how this creative use of Blu-ray’s abilities will work. First, we assume any standard web cam will work with a standalone player and the Playstation Eye with PS3 but nothing has been confirmed. Second, will the commentary replay be a standalone video or play picture-in-picture with the film? We don’t know yet.
In addition to BD-Live access and U-Control, other confirmed features are as follows with more to be announced.
