‘Hannah' takes on a new dimension

“Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert” will come to Starz in standard- and high-definition starting at 9 p.m. July 26, the premium cable channel announced recently. The 3-D version of the film, which had a limited-engagement theater run this year, will begin showing on the Starz on Demand and Starz HD on Demand channels on July 27, along with the other two versions.

Fretting about where you put those 3-D glasses? Starz has a guide to crafting a pair at www.starz.com/3D.

The movie also will be available to download from the broadband platforms Starz Play and Vongo, but only in standard definition and not in 3-D.

Disney Channel previously announced that the movie's TV debut will be 8 p.m. July 26, preceded by a daylong marathon of episodes of the channel's “Hannah Montana” series starring teenager Cyrus.

The concert film was shown in 3-D for its theater run that grossed more than $65 million. Starz noted that its TV debut precedes the movie's expected Aug. 19 home-video release by several weeks.

Filming is under way in Nashville, Tenn., on “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” set for release in summer 2009.

Its busy star isn't slacking off on her music career: Cyrus' new album, “Breakout,” will be released July 22.
