Disney, Amazon Close to Ending DVD Feud: Report

Amazon has taken delivery of DVDs of Disney releases such as 'Maleficent,' WSJ reports

LONDON — The Walt Disney Co. and Amazon look close to resolving a feud that has blocked the pre-ordering of Disney DVDs in the U.S. for nearly two months, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Upcoming Mouse House home entertainment releases such as “Maleficent,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Million Dollar Arm,” “Planes: Fire and Rescue” and “The 100-Foot Journey” were shipped to Amazon last week, an insider reported. This move may signal that an end of the dispute may be in sight.

The disagreement has mainly focused on pricing, and in particular who pays when the web operator loses money to match competitors’ prices. The promotion of titles on the Amazon website is also a sticking point.

A similar dispute between Warner Bros. and Amazon lasted several weeks in the spring.
