    Sadly, I am also wondering with allot of movies going direct to streaming like HBO Max and/or Disney Plus if they will continue to put many of their new titles on Bluray let alone steelbook. Best Buy CAN may get steelbook Pixar's Souls because they know it is a new Disney title and it will sell out quickly and will not stay on the site.

    Physical media is here to stay.
    Streaming competes with cable and TV, add the Covid scenario, and movie theaters that survive will be scaled down dramatically, probably to what we had as kids, no more Multiplexes.

    The landscape may change for Physical Media, but new companies are popping up yearly offering titles, new and old, some that were once deemed lost forever.

    Thank Niche companies like Vinegar Syndrome, Kino Lorber, Severin, Second Sight, Twilight Time, Scorpion and more.
    Movie Studios are struggling as well, and many have opened up their catalogues for MOD because it's profitable.

    As for SteelBooks, it's a marketing tool, unfortunately Canada is running out of retailers because this country's political climate and population size is a detriment to investors.

    I agree with your comment about "As for SteelBooks, it's a marketing tool, unfortunately Canada is running out of retailers because this country's political climate and population size is a detriment to investors." It seems like with Disney at Best Buy CAN they have no problem with selling newer steelbooks title. Because from from someone like me who likes and is partial to Disney steelbooks; they are sold out when try to preorder them in less than 2 days and they cannot fill online orders. Which I hope is not the case with PIXARS Soul, Black Widow and Raya and the Last Dragon.

    I have no idea what is going on with Best Buy Canada but they seem to be getting allot of old Future Shop steelbook titles like Clear and Present Danger, World War Z and Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit. In addition to a title that I have only seen only listed at Best Buy US like King Kong 2005 4K (Steelbook).

    It's called recycling

    I checked the back of Raiders, they're probably from the US, more than likely overstock for those prices.
    The date on the Raiders is 2015, which coincides with the US release of the Identical SteelBook according to Amazon

    Hey @jacques1400 I just wanted to give you a heads up seeing how there is has been no official word or listing I just placed this here; but I just wanted to inform people according to information from other sites it sounds like the Bluray for the movie Raya and the Last Dragon will have a release date of May 18, 2021 (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD) there is no price. So I would just suggest people keep there eyes open on the Best Buy CAN seeing how they seem to have steelbook preorders a month in advance. Again I just hope Best Buy Canada will get its act together for this steelbook; because the steelbook for Pixar's SOUL sold out in less than a 6hrs at Best Buy Canada the day it was listed for online preorder. I get the impression we will see an online preorder in Canada soon hopefully and there is enough online supply so orders don't get canceled.
