We received the Bluray and DVD 2-Disc combo pack. There is also a 5-disc version that contains far more special features than what you get in the 2-disc package.
The special features included on the 2-disc version are bloopers, audio commentary by director Rob Marshall, LEGO Animated Shorts: Captain Jack’s Brick Tales, and the Disney Second Screen.
The one feature that stands out to me here is the Disney Second Screen. The problem I think with having a Bluray combo pack require you to download the Disney Second Screen app and its movie related content pack, to see any significant type of behind the scenes material, is just that. Even with a decent internet connection it’s going to take you a couple of hours to download the content. Do people really want to go through this hassle?
I love the Disney Second Screen feature, but in previous combo packs Disney has always included other behind the scenes features on the Bluray for those that don’t want to access the Disney Second Screen content on their iPad or laptop. It seems like Disney included the special features on the 5-disc combo pack while leaving the people who bought the 2-disc combo pack of Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides forced into only one option of having to download the Disney Second Screen content to enjoy the material that we have all grown accustomed to in combo packs.
So my suggestion is to buy the 5-disc version if you can afford it and want the bonus material on your Bluray instead of being only able to watch it on your iPad or laptop.
