    The title of this thread sounds like an alarming proposition.

    I'm almost positive this has already been announced as one of Disney's upcoming no frills catalog releases.

    Hey Jeremy, where did you get that info? Please tell me it is going to be an anamorphic widescreen transfer.

    IGN lists the Sept. 3 release date, but no word on whether it will be widescreen or not.


    **EDIT** DVD Empire has it on pre-order for $6.99, but they don't list any info on it at all.

    Cool news, no I can replace my oft-played Laserdisc. I hope some more Get A Life discs are on the way, too.

    It was also part of that gigantic list of Disney titles that was discussed around here a few months ago. I think The Digital Bits also announced it. As for features, I somehow doubt it will have anything except a trailer. Yet somehow I feel it will be in widescreen.

    This is one I'll be buying. Now if only they'd release full season sets of Get A Life, and a disc of Action Family & FDR: A One Man Show, I'd truly be happy.

    Luke,

    Care to elaborate on which titles are going to be P&S only on September 3?

    I'm holding on to my WS LD of Cabin Boy for the time being as I expect the worst (and the picture and sound quality of the LD is actually pretty good).

    I thought in the discussion with one of the Disney guys at Digital Bits (and correct me if I'm wrong), they said that, of the films being released on 9/3, only the films they considered family titles would be released P&S. I don't think Cabin Boy would qualify as a family title, so hopefully it will be WS. My biggest disappointment is that this is getting a bareboned release. I'd love to hear a rambling, incoherent commentary by Chris.

    gee, if they did a special edition of UHF, why couldn't they at least slap a commentary on this one?

    Thanks, Luke.
    I'm willing to bet that at least half of those titles get the P&S treatment. [​IMG]

    How many of these titles are released widescreen in other regions? I'm saving for a multi-region player & was thinking of holding off on the P&S titles & just getting them from the UK or somewhere where they are released in OAR.
