According to www.davisdvd.com, Universal is releasing both "Harry and the Hendersons" and "Parenthood" as special edition DVDs on April 24th. I'm sure somebody else will post the specs for "Harry.." on here (or else you can check it out on the web site.) Specs for "Parenthood" are not available as of yet but I think we can assume it will FINALLY be in widescreen.

Great to hear about Parenthood. Been waiting for a decent release forever. Not only is it a very enjoyable film, but I'm in it as an extra. Posted Image

Count me in for both titles, especially "Harry & The Hendersons". I really enjoyed these films growing up so they'll indeed be welcome additions.

Great! Now that we finally have a decent release of HARRY & THE HENDERSONS out of the way, maybe we could get, I dunno, RAISING ARIZONA maybe? I can't believe HARRY & THE HENDERSONS gets a "special edition" release, and RAISING ARIZONA... And... And... Ah well... MC

I've been wanting 'Parenthood' pretty much since I got into this format.....about time they released an (I assume)anamorphic widescreen version. A must own title for me. Posted Image

Awesome that both of these are getting long overdue SEs. Now come on Universal and give us anamorphic widescreen editions for: - The Great Outdoors - Kindergarden Cop - Twins I'll buy all three of those in half a heartbeat.

The Great Outdoors is widescreen, but I believe it is non-anamorphic.

Yay for both! I'll be buying! Personal: When my childhood dog died I dedicated that wonderful Joe Cocker tune from Harry to him on my afternoon radio show. I think of that old dog every time I hear that song. "Love Lives On" *tear*

I'm not sure if you were making a connection but just in case, Raising Arizona is owned by 20th Century Fox not Universal.

I'm surprised this is the first time Parenthood is seeing a widescreen release. Comcast has had it on demand in high-def for quite some time.

I'm definitely getting both of these. Harry and the Hendersons is a long overdue DVD, and I'm glad I never bothered to buy the current fullscreen/bare bones version of Parenthood... I never knew The Great Outdoors DVD was non-anamorphic. Hopefully Universal remedies that soon... Are Twins and Kindergarten Cop only available on fullscreen DVDs? If so, that is awful... I'm not sure about the latter, but I almost bought the Twins DVD one day, till I noticed it said fullscreen on the box...

Got Harry today from Netflix. Very nice picture! Clean,noticed no dirt or artifacts,almost looks new. Sound was also well done,lots of atmosphere in the forest scenes. Surround was mostly used for score and other effects. havent checked out the extras yet. but what is there is short. deleted scenes run just over 3.5 mins.

There's a really good behind the scenes featurette about the make-up effects with both old and new footage. William Dear and Rick Baker talk about how the effects were rigged and created. Some cool stuff. "The making of" featurette is a fluff piece from '87.

I bought "Harry" today, been waiting for this release for years but I won't watch it until maybe tomorrow. I never cared for Parenthood.
