    Just popped in the new "Adventures in Babysitting" Blu-ray and saw that it opens with a promo for "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" on Blu-ray. The ad lists it as a "25th Anniversary Edition" - don't know if that means that Disney will make us wait until 2013 for it. Studios can be loosey-goosey with the timing of "Anniversary Editions", so I'm hopeful it'll actually be out in 2012 - or early 2013, at worst.

    Anyway, I hadn't seen any mention of this elsewhere, so I thought I'd start the thread!

    And let me be the first to bemoan its inevitable censored state.

    Very good, IMO. Cleaned up but without signs of digital interference, IMO. It's not gonna be anyone's reference Blu-ray, but it looks like a movie from 1987 should look, methinks.

    No extras, though - kinda lame they're selling it as a "25th Anniversary Edition" but couldn't even bother to include the trailer...

    Personally speaking, I feel these are pretty inconsequential, especially the first one.

    Roger Rabbit has been in promo trailers on several of the Disney Blu-rays I've reviewed over the past two months. I'd have to check the reviews to see which ones, but this wasn't its first appearance. Anyway, so glad it's coming. Really love the movie.

    Really? I don't recall seeing it - at least not on its own. Was it in a montage trailer? I list individual trailers in my reviews but don't pay attention to what they show in the "here's a whole bunch of Blu-rays!!!" trailers...

    The first part will never likely be be brought back, since it essentially censors "nudity" that isn't even noticeable without freeze-framing
    But the second edit listed should be brought back for the blu-ray--it's actual missing footage that was only cut relatively recently.

    Apparently, Betty Boop had a frame or two where she was topless. That was removed from home video, as well.

    That's why for those that still have your LDs of The Rescuers (2 scenes added in before going to VHS/DVD) , Roger Rabbit (tons of scenes), Star Wars-The Phantom Menace (Jap issue)...you have the originals which not many people will ever see. I sold mine a fews years ago, so I lost out.

    The scenes involving brief nudity would not have been the intention of the film makers. This seems like a prank by the animators. This "censorship" is restoring their original intent, IMHO.

    The first review I pulled up to check from the most recent Touchstone batch - Step Up - had it.

    Ah - I didn't review any of those, so that's why I missed it!

    I guess my news wasn't as "breaking" as I thought!

    I'm wondering if the title of this thread should be changed. From what I'm reading, all that has been seen is some Coming Attractions. To my knowledge, this title hasn't been 'announced' yet. It could be months (or even years) until this is truly 'announced'.
    While I expect this to be released at some point, I'm not getting excited until there is a formal announcement.
