    Well, this could happen, because the idiotic studio "anniversary" mentality seems to require that a catalog title almost always be released in a year after the original release date that is divisible by five. 1965 = 45 year anniversary. If it doesn't happen this year, we may have to wait until 2015 for the 50th. F**kin' stupid.

    I always see people complaining about studios releasing movies to coincide with anniversaries but are there that many releases that have delayed to coincide with an anniversary? I have no doubt that some have but it's not like this an epidemic (and if anything I see fans talking way more about a xth anniversary release than studios actually doing it).

    The real question is what we'd get if it is released this year. If I'm going to buy it again, I want the transfer to be a keeper - I don't really care about the extras.

    Yeah, ten (10) months away, why do they even bother telling us in Feb?????
    Most Studios wait until 3-4 months out before they announce.

    So does this mean we get 1 musical from Fox a year (Wow!) such slow output

    All the websites received a simple email from Fox announcing
    the fact that THE SOUND OF MUSIC would be released on
    Blu-ray this Christmas.

    We are supposed to be sent a promotional trailer for the
    title which we will post here shortly.

    Excited and hopeful about the news, but I ain't buying until I read Mr. Harris' "a few words about..." it.

    Everything that I'm hearing from the technical side is that every stop is being pulled out toward making this a perfect release.

    Do I believe this? Yes.

    ..nice.

    I'm even more excited now. Short and to the point. Nice teaser. Would love to see it as an HD trailer.

    Wonder who was playing the piano version of My Favorite Things?

    I hope they don't filter the hell out of the soundtrack like they have for all of the DVD releases.

    Is it likely to be region locked?

    I hope the soundtrack is better than the last release. Some low sound effects were missing from the track (such as Maria slapping her skirt during the opening number.) And hopefully it is directional. I have every confidence that FOX will do as much as possible to make this a definitive release.

    Yes, I really enjoy the movies with directional dialog.

    I hope we get it in the UK at Christmas but I very much doubt it. We're still waiting for South Pacific.

    The US version of South Pacific was not region locked which is why I hold out some hope for SOM.
