Fox's UK division has announced the details of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season 7 DVD box set. I expect that the bonus features will be very similar to - if not identical to - the Region 1 version when it eventually turns up.

Of course, the UK version will have 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers, and the Region 1 version will be 4:3. Let's not even go there, people! Posted Image

The set will contain commentary episodes on seven episodes, as well as several featurettes, outtakes and trailers.

For more details, and a selection of menu screens, visit Zeta Minor

Thanks for posting this! I hope we get some larger menu screens soon, so I can read all of the text. But I must say, I wish they would have used more up-to-date photos instead of recycled ones from seasons-past. I know there were no promo shots that year, but they could at least have even used promo pictures from the episodes themselves. Oh well.

Nice to see some cast interaction on the DVD! We get James Marsters, Nicholas Brendon, Tom Lenk, Danny Strong, and D.B. Woodside! Posted Image

There's not much to read on those screens, Ryan, just the usual "chapter selection" and "Play"-type options. The only other things listed are the option to hear the commentary, and the Willow Demon Guide (DVD-Rom).

All the bonus featurettes are on the four discs I don't currently have, sadly!

Sorry the images are small - bandwidth costs are already very high for what's essentially a personal site (with no ad's!)

Good episode choice for commentaries, IMO. With the conclusion of the series, it would be nice to have a more substantial feature/featurette though.

That is a shame. Anya's pictures are really gonna look outdated considering how often Emma Caulfield changed her hairstyle in Season 7.

yeah hopefully Sarah does SOME type of interview for the season overview. I was hoping to see more featurettes like the CGI effects for "Chosen" or maybe including the first trailer that was showed on the WB in 1997 promoting the series premiere;(I think they show a part of it on the A&E Buffy special) because that tv spot was the best commercial I've ever seen to promote any series Posted Image. That would definatly be a great treat.

Isn't that A&E special on the season 6 set? Maybe the promo will show up on there.

I doubt any promo's will ever be planned on the R1 versions because R1 haven't had any original WB promos since season 2, which had a couple of great trailers that were originally shown in 1997 and 1998. Most of the trailers on the R2 versions(I've heard) are just for dvd/video releases of the boxsets, and who wants that? Posted Image What we need are classic nostalgic promos like the first one ever, one for "Prophecy Girl", "The Body", "Checkpoint", "Hush" and maybe even one from UPN "Once More With Feeling" trailer (not made-up one's like the one on the S1 dvds). I'll just keep my fingers crossed, till they break Posted Image

Well according to blackstar they say the s7 dvds will have 12 trailers and hopfully they'll be some of the ones I've mentioned.
