Back in June, Amazon and Warner Bros. Pictures had a falling out over their contract together which lead to the online retail giant blocking DVD and Blu-ray pre-order sales of Warners titles like “The Lego Movie,” “300: Rise of an Empire,” “Transcendence” and “Winter’s Tale”. That dispute was ultimately resolved.
Now a new feud has begun, this time between Amazon and Disney. Amazon is reportedly blocking DVD and Blu-ray pre-order sales on various upcoming Disney films including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Maleficent,” “Muppets Most Wanted” and “Million Dollar Arm”.
Preorders for physical versions are unavailable, but customers can still buy digital versions in advance. That said, revenue from disc sales remains important to a studio’s bottom line so this dispute will need to be resolved soon.
