Happy Feet coming to both HD DVD and Blu-ray

Matt Burns

Apparently, Warner didn't feel Happy Feet was that important to include within their '07 HD DVD/Blu-ray road map but nevertheless here we are, tolling away at the high-def news. Warner is bringing this new family favorite out on a Combo HD DVD disc encoded at 1080p along with a Dolby TrueHD soundtrack, and it will hit the shelves at $29.95. The Blu-ray flavor, however, is coming out on a standard disc (non-combo), lacks the lossless audio track found on its HD DVD counterpart, but still gets an extra channel thanks to a Dolby Digital 5.1 EX audio track, and will carry a sticker price of $24.99. The decision is yours come March 27, but we would opt for a lossless audio track if it was up to us.
