DVD / October 24, I'll admit to not enjoying Meet The Robinsons as much as many others .. The disc starts up with the usual force-fed Sneak Peeks, also available from their own menu, offering previews for the new reissue of Peter. Meet the Robinsons () on IMDb: Movies, TV, Celebs, and more.
Wilbur, it turns out, is from the future and has a vested interest in helping Lewis get back his invention. Why all this attention to Lewis and his invention? Well, that's what this franticly paced plot is all about.
The below Blu-ray captures were taken directly from the Blu-ray disc. The score of 9 indicates a relative level of excellence compared to other Blu-rays.
The score in parentheses represents: Despite the movie's being computer animated and therefore digitally sourced, I can't say that it's quite as razor sharp or as highly resolved as I expected.
That said, it is still excellent, without faults or distracting aberrations. Lewis leaves while the Bowler Hat Guy, with the help of a robotic bowler hat named Doris, repairs and steals the scanner.
Wilbur meets Lewis at the orphanage and asks him to repair the scanner. Lewis agrees to do so only if Wilbur can prove he is telling the truth, which Wilbur does by taking them to the year in a second time machine.
When they arrive, he and Wilbur get into an argument and crash. Wilbur asks Lewis to fix the time machine, but Lewis has another condition: Wilbur has to take him to visit his mother afterwards. Reluctantly, Wilbur agrees and hides Lewis in the garage.
Lewis does not stay there for long, however, and ends up meeting the rest of the Robinson family except for Cornelius, Wilbur's father, who is away on a business trip.

The Robinsons offer to adopt Lewis, but change their mind when they learn that he is from the past. As with the new Walt Disney Pictures castle logo that was introduced last year, I have to say that neither ultimately inspire the magic we usually associate with Disney Studios, and I was interested to note that the print version does indeed thicken up that D a little more. The disc starts up with the usual force-fed Sneak Peeks, also available from their own menu, offering previews for the new reissue of Peter Pan: This actually is far from the fun it might sound, and is actually a little embarrassing: While sticking with alternate audio tracks, I was surprised to find a totally unpublicised inclusion of a full-length sound effects track, which presents the entire film sans music and vocals hidden in the Audio Options of the Set Up menu.
Surely, with the following Elfman has, any space for such an extra track would have been much better served in allowing his wonderfully unique and original music score to shine instead of a bunch of bells, whistles, crashes, whizzes and bangs?

Moving into Backstage Disney, and the Inventing The Robinsons featurette provides the now customary production overview that seem to be the norm on single disc Disney DVDs. Inventions That Shaped The World takes a six-minute look at the real life creators and developments that might have inspired Lewis himself, mixing a plethora of Disney images old and new.
A small peek at versions of scenes altered from how they appear in the final movie are among the three Deleted Scenes presented next. With introductions from director Stephen Anderson, who explains why and what was changed, the clips run for just over a seven-minute total. There are some strong lines in Arriving At The Future that could well have been kept in allowing for the change in direction towards the end of the moment, though Meeting Carl the robot was wisely shortened.
Best of all is an alternate take on Goob winning his baseball game, with a highly amusing additional line from Bowler Hat Guy that refers to his size and smarts over Lewis. It should be pointed out that the Blu-Ray edition, for some reason, includes additional scenes.

The design is fairly pleasing too, giving the right amount of coverage to each character and retaining the theatrical feel even if not the poster art verbatim. Unlike Chicken Little, which was tinkered with to produce a 3D-enhanced theatrical version after production wrapped, Meet The Robinsons was designed from the outset with the 3D presentation in mind.
A Blu-Ray disc edition is also available, promising an even higher resolution closer to the original files created by the filmmakers.
