The Blu-ray, 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray, and DVD editions of Cars 3 have been unavailable almost since listed for pre-order on Amazon.com. One might have thought upon release date (Tuesday, Nov. 7) that the biggest online retailer would have copies of the film available. But, upon looking this morning it appears both the Blu-ray and DVD editions of Cars 3 are “Temporarily out of stock.”
Amazon does, however, have some copies of Cars 3 on 4k Blu-ray priced at $27.99 (see updated Amazon pricing below), but for how long nobody knows.
What should you do? Well, if you own a Blu-ray player just buy the 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray edition right now. Amazon says they will have more copies of the standard Blu-ray edition starting on Nov. 11, but they are asking
$44.99 for that edition. That’s almost $20 more than the 4k Blu-ray edition! [Update: Amazon has reduced the order price to $19.99 but units are still out of stock.]
Or, head over to Best Buy, Target or Walmart. They all seem to have plenty of inventory available, and, if you find they have sold out copies of Cars 3 in-store they will likely be able to order a copy and have it shipped to you.
This isn’t the first time Amazon hasn’t been able to stock Disney titles. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 were both recently sold out or unavailable on Amazon upon release date.
