Create a circle using the shape tool. Make it a little smaller than the circumference of your disc. With the text tool click on the edge of the circle. I don't recall the exact name of the option but its something like type text on path. Then you can delete the circle and the path with text is still there. When you type it follows the path made from the circle.

Find a disk that has the writing on from the same studio for the movie your doing and copy the text, just change the year on it. As for the font, can't help you there love.

As Corky said, copy the text from another disc, from the same studio. Different studios use different wording. As for the font, it depends on the disc. You could just use a standard font, like arial, so that is is easily legible. The text is normally very small, so complicated fonts will be too hard to read.
