Up directors Bob Peterson and Pete Docter believe the Oscar-nominated animated movie looks just as good on DVD as it does on the big screen.

Bob said: "To be honest we didn't design it with 3-D, from the beginning it was just a story and when we brought 3-D in I wanted to make sure we weren't doing anything that would make the 2-D version suffer.

"So the film was really designed for 2-D - 3-D was an added cherry on top, so you're not really going to miss anything."

He added: "If anything I think the DVD, and especially the Blu-ray, is fantastic visually.

"With all our cutting edge best-of-the-best technology and visual displays, I don't think I've seen it look better than Blu-ray."

Pete also said the special features on the DVD were impressive.

"The special features are great too ... that's always fun to see who helped in the making of the movie and the troubles they had as they went," he said.

Bob added: "The film is a five-year process so it's a little bit like the disc is our adventure book, our memory book of all the things that happened over that five years."

:: Up is now available on Disney Blu-ray, Disney DVD and Disney Combi pack.
