    That is a nice cover but i think the original artwork is nice aswell. The new dvd will have the same a/v as the old one correct? as far as i know supplements are the only difference, but correct me if im wrong. So i won't be upgrading just for extra features even though i would like to. I made up my mind awhile back that any upgrade must be improved a/v wise for me to do so.

    Excellent!

    Couldn't happen to a better animated film. I hope this movie eventually gets recognized as the masterpiece that it is.

    Does anyone know if there will be any improvement to the video/audio, or is it the same transfer with extra supplements?

    The current disc looks and sounds great, so I don't think I would upgrade just for extra features.

    The DD rate might go up to 448kbps from 384= less compression.

    Improved picture/sound would make this an immediate and definite purchase for me. Otherwise the "extras" better be more than just promotional fluff pieces.

    But I loved this movie so much I'll probably upgrade anyway and use the old disc as a "hand me down" for my parents.
