Found this at DVD Planet and thought I would post what I found.

It seems that Universal/ DreamWorks is either re-issuing or putting out new Editions of their animated films all to be released on 10-26-2004 for $14.95 each.

Disney is releasing a 3 Disc Set of Pirates of the Caribbean on 11-02-2004 for $29.95.

No details are listed as to what are on these.

Does anybody have any details on any of the above releases?

Ha!

So happy I never got around to picking up the first POTC, especially since it's so difficult to find with the slip cover now.

if its the same transfer on POTC, I'll pass. The current transfer is pretty bad. Take a look at the DTS sampler disc that has a clip from POTC, the PQ blows away the commercial release.

I'm happy with the current POTC. Doesn't warrant another purchase no matter how much stuff they put on it.

Since I got the first POTC as a Christmas gift, I'll look into getting this... though outside of the missing trailers, what would they add, anyway (especially since the sequel won't begin production until next summer)?

I never even picked up the current release (watched it so many times with family and friends) but I'll get the 3 disc for sure.

I wonder if maybe it's the current 2-disc set packed with the soundtrack/score?

I hope it's not a SE as the current one is pretty loaded.

Didn't the "commercial release" disc rack up a boatload of DVD nomimations? And didn't it win some as well?

Yeah. But some say they were undeserved. There's a very heavy amount of edge enhancement early on in the film. Most notably when Jack makes his entrance he seems to be outlined in white. I didn't really notice much EE later in the film though.

If they plan on rereleasing then please, add as much as possible! I would never, ever ask a studio to not release a SE version.

How can Disney justify a 3-disc release of Pirates when the 2-disc version was already pretty good? It had 2 commentary tracks and was loaded with other great extras, so I can't imagine what a 3rd disc would include. It can't possibly be promo featurettes to hype the sequel, because that hasn't even started filming yet and isn't slated to be released until summer 2006.

Also just announced from Buena Vista are two new "double-dips," both arriving just in time for the holidays on November 2nd. Watch for a new Collector's Edition of Bridget Jones's Diary, and a new three-disc set of the mega-hit Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. What new will be on these reissues? Details have yet to be announced, but stay tuned...

if its a new transfer for POTC, i'll bite.

i didn't pick up the earlier disc due to bad WOM on the PQ, and i still haven't seen the film yet.

It would seem unlikely they would do a whole new transfer for w film that came out last year in theaters and on DVD. If anything, perhaps limit the quantity of commentaries or audio tracks, but who knows. It will be the same transfer no doubt, which I'm satisfied with.

I'm betting the third disc will be a full screen version. This title made a lot of the full-screen-only-people angry.

A third disc being a full screen version is possible. Seeing as how this film was geared towards family friendly audiences and younger crowds, many who are not familiar with the benefits of widescreen. A three disc set with a fullscreen version would be a waste of time and money and completely unnecessary. Not to mention capitalizing on the fame of Johnny Depp, Kiera Kinghtley, and Orlando Bloom. Isn't Gore Verbinski suppose to have a new film out around the time of this release? That could be a reason also.

Have you seen the extensive DVD-Rom features for Pirates? If you don't have a DVD-ROM, you didn't see these. Methinks those and web featurettes and sneak previews for Pirates II and III will make up the third disc...sort of like the "SpiderMan: Deluxe Edition".

As I said before, they couldn't possibly have any significant sneak previews of Pirates 2 and 3 on the DVD if its coming out this December. The sequels haven't started filming yet and aren't slated for release until summer/fall 2006.

Pfft. All you need are some storyboards and concept art and some chatting heads for a preview. You don't need production footage.

Any possibility of a director's cut?
