    It must be invisible, because the first post looks blank to me too.

    Just tried it with a different browser and it's there. There seem to be a problem seeing it with GoogleChrome.
    Edit: Actually the problem is with GoogleChrome's ad-blocking. If you pause ad-block, it will show up.

    I'm happy that this one is coming to blu-ray, and if it only included the film, I'd be happy. ...but...! It appears that all of the bonus features are ported over from the Vista DVD release. Are there any new features on the BR release? Thanks, matt

    That commentary looks like it might be assembled from previously recorded interviews. In general, I find them not that interesting. But bring on the movie.

    All of that was on the DVD and the commentary WAS recorded in a group setting. [​IMG]

    They are. Only the last one looks especially good, however. I have the blu-ray--honestly, it's pretty good for what it is, but they really needed to go back to the film elements and recomposite the whole thing. There's too many process shots in which the animated characters are translucent. There's also some pretty bad contrast in night scenes. Not their best effort.

    Unimpressed that on the UK Bluray at least there's no mention whatsoever on the packaging of Richard Williams Studios involvement.

    Is there a way to tell by the package if the DVD is fullframe or widescreen?
