    Just got this from DVDEmpire:

    "Dear Customer

    We have just been informed that Disney has cancelled the release of
    "Ed Wood: The Special Edition" due to unforseen circumstances.. We are
    going to change the title to TBA in our database in case they decide to
    change the release after all. This will leave your order in our system and
    guarantee you get a copy when the movie is released.

    We do apologize for this inconvenience.
    DVD Empire"

    Geez, what's it going to take to actually get this movie out? This is turning into another Duel!

    EDIT: I don't know if it was there before, but it is not listed at all on BV's release list for 2004 (video.com).

    For crying out loud, it's coming out in less than 2 weeks! Wouldn't it all be shipped to stores by now??

    No big deal. The Korean Version is nearly identical anyway and is cheaper.

    Someone please tell me this is a joke!! This has been one of my most wanted DVDs since the launch of the format. What possible unforseen circumstances could there be after all these years, except some retard not doing their job.

    This could explain why we haven't seen any reviews yet (or does Buena Vista usually send out their review copies late?).

    At this rate Big Fish will be out on DVD before Ed Wood, and Burton will probably have his next film in the theatres.

    This is very disturbing. This is due to be released in just 11 days! I checked my preorder from Amazon, and didn't say anything about it. I checked at least 5 other online retailers and got conflicting reports. DVD Planet and DDD did not list it, but Best Buy, DVD Soon and 1 other (I forget which) still had it down for 2/3.

    D'oh!!!!!

    2004 list

    This is the list I saw. I really hope it is released on 2/3, I just wanted to alert people who may have also pre-ordered it.

    Also, the Ed Wood page doesn't seem to list a purchase date, but when pulling up a future title like Duplex, it does list buy 3/2/04.

    I'm just banging my head against my desk. Are they going to try to tie it into the relase of Big Fish on DVD, maybe?

    I've been meaning to get a second DVD player for my HT-sounds like it's time to go region-free.

    Well, I got the same "cancelled" e-mail from DVD Empire. Then, five minutes later, I got this:
    So it sounds like it might just be a street-date slip that's been handled weirdly by Buena Vista. I'm keeping my hopes up for now...

    At least one person reports already having received copies for their store.

    It's gone from DVD Planet and Amazon.

    A video store employee on DVD Talk said that his (unnamed) store has received 15 copies, and they hadn't received a recall notice as of his posting.

    From The Digital Bits:

    "Well, here's disappointing news. Buena Vista's Ed Wood: Special Edition (previously scheduled for release on 2/3) has been indefinitely delayed... again. We've been receiving a lot of e-mails from our retail sources over the last 12 hours, and we've just heard official word from the studio. We have no idea why this might be happening, or when the title might be re-slated for release, but you can be sure we'll update you with anything we hear."

    Bummer!
