    It's been officially announced to retailers that The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe will be released on April 4.

    It'll be the usual - widescreen and fullscreen versions, and then for a few extra bucks, you can get a widescreen "Collector's Edition" - that probably means a bonus disc while the regular edition goes bonus-less and almost feature-less. The Coll.Ed. will run you about $5.00 more.

    I'm expecting Kong to be announced very soon - it's supposed to street a week or two before Narnia.

    Cheers.

    Definitely the CE for me. Best movie I saw last year (with Fantastic Four running a close second). I can't wait for Prince Caspian!

    Um - maybe I'm forgetting something, but why cupcakes?
    Now, Turkish Delight would make sense, but I can't remember any cupcakes in the story...

    Craig is talking about the Chronicles of Narnia short that SNL did a few weeks ago. Very funny stuff.

    Oh, OK. Thanks.
    Any chance of a quick explanation of the joke? Or is it one that just loses the humour in the translation?

    The DVD should include the SNL skit as a bonus or hidden feature. Narnia wanted to the next LOTR, and those discs had great, irreverant comedy bits on them. Unfortunately, I don't have faith that Disney will be hip enough to include it.

    Any news as to whether it'll have the comparible depth to the LOTR EE discs?

    This is one setup I'll be happy to own. If Disney's smart they'll include the Chronic-WHAT-cles of Narnia on there.

    King Kong is rumored to be 3/28 but is not official yet (source: Digital Bits).

    I would love it if Narnia got similar releases to what LOTR got.

    I'll definitely wait for a High Def version of this. I just hope it doesn't take too long, I really liked this movie.

    The two-disc art is fantastic.
