    I think the 1:39.27 is the running time of the movie, the PAL version anyway.
    Typical that they'd bring out a special edition now - I only bought the standard edition from Japan a couple of months back [​IMG]
    Looks like this is one disc I'll be doubling up on

    I presume the special edition is coming out around the same time as the R1 Vista series.

    Of course, the Vista series seems to have more supplements listed - but it's possible the Roger Rabbit cartoons shorts could still be included as I believe these have all been classified in the past (weren't they released together on a single VHS tape in the early 1990's?).

    Of course, I don't know off-hand if a widescreen release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit was ever released, but if so, it seems strange the film is being re-submitted.

    Could this be an indication that the film will be released totally uncut and uncensored?

    The Japanese region 2 edition is in 1:85:1 widescreen. ( It's not anamorphic though )
    And the amount of special features = 0 [​IMG]

    Looks good! Hopefully it'll be completely uncut (as in, with the "finger" scene intact).

    Hi Jussi

    Now that I think about it, I think the "01:39:27:16 | WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT" entry is certifying a commentary track rather than a new cut of the film. (Although commentaries have always been submitted seperately in the past, I think)

    Still, fingers crossed, eh?

    This is now (almost) available to order in the UK from Blackstar
    Based on the BBFC certifications, the only things missing from the 2 disc VISTA R1 release will be the P&S version of the film and a set-top game or two.

    The baby herman finger scene is mising from r1 so perhaps it is intact for r2.
    Does anybody know for certain

    I'm hoping the UK version is anamorphic widescreen and unedited since the region 1 version will be sanitized by Disney for our protection. [​IMG] If it is, it will be my first imported DVD.

    The UK release has been pushed back until 19th May 2003, even though Disney UK obviously have the disc's assets (see certification at the top of this thread) [​IMG]
    You know, it's almost as if they want people to import [​IMG]

    Well looks like the rest of Europe is still getting their Roger Rabbit in March? Why not the UK?

    Do they really want to encourage people to import? I don't understand why the UK release would be delayed?

    I had another look at the "finger" scene, and am sad to report that I was mistaken. Although the thrusting motion was intact, the finger itself has been - ahem - digitally removed. I apologise if I got anyone's hopes up.

    This is only encouraging importing and perhaps they don't care

    WHAT THE....!?
    Buena Vista have announced that " Who Framed Roger Rabbit" will be released on June 2nd as a Woolworths exclusive (UK)
    I cannot understand the logic of this at all! Not only does R1 and the rest of Europe get a yummy 2 disc set (with perhaps Europe having the best, being as there's no P&S version of the film) the UK gets a single disc release only available in one shopping chain months later? (and of course the exclusive nature of the release mean Woolworths can set their own price)
    Looking at the specs and the BBFC classifications, it appears not even everything passed is on the disc!
    As I said before, Buena Vista UK are practically begging people to import the R1 or other European versions. [​IMG]

    Woolworths only?!
    Well done Buena Vista - that's a nice fingers up to your Irish customers ( no Woolworths in Ireland and as UK discs are usually pressed for both territories, evidently no WFRR on sale in the Republic )
    Looks like I'll be importing either the French or German edition - whichever is cheaper.
    Idiots!


    EDIT: Perhaps they mean Woolworths will just get special packaging or something? I've noticed HMV sometimes have discs with exclusive box art...
