    Damn, seems like I've had this pre-ordered in one form or another forever. I am sooo glad to finally be getting it. I have never seen the extended cut, so it should be a treat. Can't wait.

    I already have the R2 Euro-cut of Legend and it is a superb transfer, and in my opinion a better film than the American release. I'm confident the R1 DVD will be more than worth our wait.

    can't wait...such a huge fan.

    Anyway, all Ive ever seen is the American cut. Nice looking but a jumbled mess of a movie. I"m very excited about the extended cut. Its not just new scenes, its different editing of existing scenes as well, so we're in for something completely different

    Speaking of the R2 releases, I just received the Japanese disc the other week and loved the packaging. I don't know if the Euro discs have this as well, but it's in a clear Amaray case with artwork on the cover's flipside showing through when you open the case. I'm surprised I haven't seen more discs packaged this way - since CDs went the way of the clear case long ago, I don't know why DVD cases have to be black so often. Very cool looking! But I digress...

    Yup, I'm excited as well. The R2 stole a bit of the new release's thunder (since I hadn't seen ANY version of this film in widescreen since the theatrical run), but I'm really excited to check out the new cut!

    I'll believe it when I finally have it in my sweaty hairy hands, and than drooling I unwrap the package and find out its some obscure 1970's martial arts flick called 'Legend of the Farting Monkey'... it can happen, with my luck.

    ps. Can't wait for this dvd release, I just hope Scott's reinstated the legendary musical number where Darkness and Princess Lily sing a duet, I hear Darkness has a tremendous singing voice.

    Why would I be excited that Legend is less than a month away?

    Just because I've been waiting on this since the premature laserdisc SE was announced years and years and years ago!!

    I swear if Universal bumps this release like the last time, I'm gonna kill someone!
