Shrek DVD Released Amidst Accusations

(November 2, 2001 - by digitalmediafx.com) DreamWorks released Shrek to DVD and video today amidst accusations and denials of trying to interfere with Pixar's Monsters, Inc. by releasing Shrek on the same day. DreamWorks denied the accusation that it was trying to interfere with Monsters, Inc. hinting to the LA Times that the timing was a coincidence. When the LA Times pointed out that Tuesdays are an industry standard for DVDs and Shrek was being released on a Friday, DreamWorks said that it was seeing Friday as a better day to release its DVDs than Tuesdays. The LA Times then pointed out that all of DreamWorks announced videos/DVDs before and after Shrek are all still Tuesday releases.

Controversy aside, the release of Shrek is expected to be huge and some analysts predict that the Shrek DVD might break the one week selling record set by the Stars Wars: The Phantom Menace DVD just two weeks ago.

DreamWorks has included a ton of additional features in its 2-disc DVD, which sells for less money ($19.95) than most 1-disc DVDs without special features.
