Wow, this is a surprise. Here's the info from Ultimate Disney .

What's this? USA Today reveals that there is a 10th Anniversary Edition DVD of Toy Story coming on September 6th! This 2-disc re-release is reported to "bump up" picture and sound quality (a challenge on such a fine first release) with a higher bitrate and enhanced work from sound designer Gary Rydstrom. Pixar's first feature film will also be accompanied by brand new bonus features including "The Legacy of Toy Story", which interviews celebrated filmmakers on the movie's importance, ten deleted scenes, a new making-of documentary, early animation tests, and a new music video of Lyle Lovett and Randy Newman performing their end credits duet of "You've Got a Friend in Me."

What a great movie! I've got the Ultimate Toybox but depending on the new PQ and extras, there's a good chance I'll buy this one againPosted Image

I'll ONLY consider purchase if there is indeed an improvement in image quality.

Otherwise, any other word whether existing extras will be ported over?

That's great. I haven't been able to find a release for the first Toy Story, so this will be very nice to have! Posted Image

Count me as one who thinks this is a totally unnecessary double-dip. I grow weary with all these re-releases from greedy studios trying to milk every last penny from consumers before the new format hits. I know that nobody's forcing me to buy it, but I'm just tired of seeing this trend continue.

Apparently, the word 'Ultimate' doesn't mean squat.Posted Image

The year of the re-releases continues, I swear this has been the worst year by far.

It would be nice if they offered us an "upgrade" - I'd pay $10 on top of what I previously bought for a "superbit" quality Toy Story, with DTS.

I have watched so many of the Pixar titles on 60" HD displays, improperly calibrated, and they look fantastic... so when I finally get my HD Front projector to replace my old SVGA, I am sure I can get them to look great. I honestly don't know how many title's I will be re-buying on HD-DVD/BlueRay...

I need to get one for my son, who's two. I love him dearly, but he's still not allowed to touch my Toy Story Toy Box. Posted Image
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal
, Out of Africa, and Traffic.

They'd have to do something pretty damn special to get me to double-dip on this title. I have the Ultimate Toybox, and I see no reason to upgrade.

Just a note on picture quality. If I remember correctly, the current Toy Story (part 1) DVD was created from film since the movie was never created as a "whole" in the computer.

I would definitely buy this if I knew they were outputting the files directly from the raw 3D files. Hopefully we'll find out.

If the PQ is actually better, I'll buy this in a second, given that I only have the single disc versions of the films.

The truth doesn't care whether you believe it.

Where is the Lilo & Stitch re-issue? That movie, at least, wasn't already an SE. It was supposed to be out in early 2004, then mid-2005, but still no word?

As an Ultimate Toy Box owner, another Posted Image The only way I would upgrade is if it includes Blu-Ray or HD-DVD as well (hopefully the formats will merge).

Well, I'm excited. I never was able to buy the Ultimate Toy Box (I couldn't afford the $60 price tag) so I'm hoping this will port over soem of the older extras. Posted Image

Count me as another Ultimate Toy Box owner who will be sitting this one out. For the average consumer, though, this is a good thing. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe "Toy Story" has been out of print since 2003 (thanks to Disney's annoying limited-release practice). It will be good to see it back on the shelves again.

Here, I thought that the picture (TS2) couldn't get any better here they claim it can. Two things would make me double dip and send my twin collection to my son's room and keep the 9/6 release downstairs: 1 PROMINENT video improvement nothing subtle, and 2 DTS soundtrack. TS2 opening scene better shake the house down with a DTS track. Absent those two criterias, not worth it for me, very pleased with PQ on original double disc set.

While that was the case for the laserdisc, I recall reading that steps were taken to make it purely digital on the DVD.

As an owner of the Ultimate Toy Box set, I will hold out until the HD-DVD or Blue-Ray version gets release until I re-buy. The UTB set is reference quality as it is.

a new music video of Lyle Lovett and Randy Newman performing their end credits duet of "You've Got a Friend in Me."
Thanks for the warning! I can avoid this purchase. Posted Image (Good song, but Newman nor Lovett thrill me.)

I've got the UTB. It would take a super ultimate re-release to merit a re-purchase.
