Maybe we'll find another one or two in January, but for now we have one
"missed" DVD from November to add to our 2011 collection of audio described
One Day, starring Anne Hathaway
That brings us to 73 described DVDs in 2011, eclipsing last year's 48. What
a wonderful trend! However, while Universal Studios has been pretty good
about releasing described DVDs, but they often release a non-described DVD
to rental companies like Redbox. Trying to find anyone associated with the
decisions is just about impossible.
When the first described DVD comes out in January 2012, we'll start the
described DVDs page anew for the new year, but of course you will easily be
able to get to the 2011 (and 2010) page to review what's available. If you
have any suggestions for improving the usability of the pages, please use
the webmaster link on any ADP website page to send along your thoughts.
Avatar was release with description in 2010 on the Blu-ray disc only.
Christian wrote in as follows recently:
Greetings. First of all, I would like to note that the Avatar 3-disc
extended edition on Blu-Ray features DVS audio on all three versions of the
film. This is likely achieved through seamless branching, like the film
itself. The descriptions are wonderfully executed and different voices are
utilized for certain specific characters use of subtitled Navi language. I
did not see any mention of this fact on the site, so figured I would mention
it in case anyone else is wondering. I do not believe the DVD has this
That brings up the question of whether or not previously released DVDs with
description should be relisted later in multi-disc sets. The Star Wars and
Shrek packagings were listed because previous versions did not have
description - but Avatar did. I would like to examine the packaging of this
one myself before making a decision, but comments are welcome. Christian
wondered about other packagings, such as Harry Potter and Back to the
Future. Whenever these come out, I do examine the packaging for an
indication of description, and so far I haven't found any other than Star
Wars and Shrek. Your discoveries are always helpful and most welcome!
A very Happy New Year from Fred and Joel! Here's to even more audio
description in 2012.
