I assume that means we'll be getting a new standard dvd too.
Isn't the movie produced by MGM? That would mean it would be blu-ray, right? Maybe I'm wrong.
MGM is distributed by Fox, so yes, it would be a Blu-Ray edition.
Which makes it hard for me to resist a player.
Yep, this'll be BD. Scroll down further on the page and you'll see that the site mentions it will be released by MGM through 20th Century Fox. Yet another reason why I wish Warner, instead of Sony, had been successful in bidding on MGM.
Moving this to HT Software (Hi-def) and changing the title to reflect Blu-Ray rather than hd-dvd.
Why would he continually say HD DVD though?? I know MGM owns the release(unless something has changed) so why would he continue to mention HD DVD?
Maybe he doesn't know the difference between the two formats?
While the comment suggests the film was shot 1.33:1 and projected 1.85:1, the current DVD was PAN AND SCAN, not open matte.
This is obvious from looking at the chapter menu on the current DVD: One can see image included on the right and left sides of the chapter frames (which appear widescreen) that is absent in the 1.33:1 actual video.
Also the writing in the book in the opening of the film (as per the current DVD) has many of the words & letters cropped-out of the picture.
This is a rather Bipolar disorder thread. First HD DVD, then Blu Ray. I'm so confused.
I'll be happy just to finally get an OAR of one of my favorite animated films.
They only release later MGM content (post 1986), Warner does the remainder. Except for MGM/UA films, of which The Secert of Nihm is. THis will make the film a BD only release.
This was a United Artists release, thus clearly in MGM territory.
So is this the first traditionally hand animated title to hit HD-DVD or BD?
Depends on how soon it hits. If Disney gets a traditional hand-animated feature out before, you'll have your answer, but defintiely one of the first announced.
Definitely great news. I never bought the DVD because it was P&S.
Great news, and hopefully the remaster will be a quality one. The original DVD release has some serious problems in a few scenes (bad transfer?), but I really enjoy the movie so I have it. Can't wait for this one on BD.
The DVD release isn't P&S is it? I didn't notice any digital panning, I thought it was just reformated for 4:3.
Others claim to see cropping. I can't comment because I couldn't bring myself to buy the current DVD.
I am still hoping there will be a Blu Ray release planned for N.I.M.H., there aren't a huge # of anumated features released on BD yet... so I would defin. take NIMH as well as Watership Down if WB's can do the BD correctly... would be nice not to have these films looking interlaced esp Watership Down.
