    Guess I'm naive, but I'm shocked to hear that it's back. (I'd actually forgotten about it, and you'll never catch me even trying such an assho-- silly thing.) Seriously, didn't they pick up enough bad press on that -- even from the mainstream -- the first time around?? I guess I'm wrong to think so.

    I think the only way that they'd get rid of it is if it somehow impacted sales. Truthfully, most people won't ever watch the extras or, if they do, only once. It will still sell like hotcakes and Disney can have another bullet point to put on the back of the case without putting much effort into it. It doesn't take much to plop low-res digital files of currently-existing videos on a server and add links to them on the disc. It sucks for those of us who actually value the extra features, but we're sadly in the minority, I think.

    I'm sure the transfer is nice, but I'm not going to upgrade the DVD. Unless, I can win one!

    Thanks for the review Matt. Will be purchasing this one, unless of course I win one.

    Hi, I have to state i have not ordered it as of yet. I feel like I gut burned on Ben Hur! I love the film and received it from Amazon at a good price. The burned part comes in when I find out that Best Buy gave out a Roman Soldier. I am thinking I shall wait and buy it on the release day or during that week. Lion King I watched in the theater and I have a VHS copy. I guess I just have not made up my mind. The only thing is they are calling it a limited release which might push me to buy.

    Hate to admit, but I've never seen this film. I did see a tv commercial for this in HD the other day and realized how glorious hand drawn animation can look in HD. I am looking forward to finally seeing this on BD.

    Would love to win a copy. Especially since I want to get Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown this week.

    Entered! 'Cause if I don't win the disc here, I won't be picking it up for a while thanks to my less-than-robust budget.

    I'm a fan of this film, but don't yet have it on home video. I'm sure I'll get the blu-ray release at some point whether winning this contest or buying it at a later date.
