    I can't believe this isn't on Blu-ray yet! Any news on this? Is there a petition we can sign somewhere?

    Like everyone else, I adore this movie and would love to see it released on Blu-ray. Warner seems to be doing a decent job with catalog titles so hopefully it won't be too much longer.

    I agree with Carl that WB is doing pretty good with catalog. My guess is we are still a year or two away since they haven't tackled may "kids" catalog titles on BD yet.

    I would also upgrade this title to BD. Great film, old school animation, and Brad Bird's first movie. What's not to love?

    The Fugitive.

    It's also possible that WB may tackle this when Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol comes out, to capitalize on Bird's live-action directorial debut.

    I keep expecting to hear about this being a retailer exclusive.

    I normally don't buy retailer exclusives on principle, but Iron Giant is a gem of a film I would not be able to resist. Warner, please release the Blu already!!
