    With the release of the 1 disc Lilo & Stitch being only a week away, has anyone heard definitively whether there is to be a 2 disc special edition release of the movie for next year? You would think Disney would had let people know before December 3rd to avoid accusations of double-dipping. I can understand them wanting to get the bare bones release out before Christmas and to spend more time to prepare the special edition. I had heard also that the film's directors had already done audio commentaries for the film.

    I mean if they give the 2 disc special edition treatment to the "Emperor New Groove" and "Atlantis" (though I think Atlantis was vastly underrated), why not to "Lilo & Stitch" since the film did so well at the box office?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Yes, according to an interview with the director, they're working on a SE.

    DVDFile in their review of L&S stated that the 2-disc edition is on the way. Don't know what their source is, but I'd love for that to be true, as I'm holding out on the 12/03 release.

    Just buy the 1-disc now and sell it when (IF) the 2-disc comes out... that is what I am doing [​IMG]

    Like Ron I plan on buying the 1-disc set and trading it in if a 2-disc set arrives. I have a feeling that the 2-disc set might be a little ways off since we haven't really heard to much about it yet.

    Well it seems that if Disney is releasing a direct to video sequel in summer of 2003, I would suspect that they would release at the same time the SE of the original film. Great cross promotion...and we know Disney is all about promotion...

    If this is true...at the most...maybe a six to eight month wait....damn that is forever...

    I was planning to hold out for a SE , but after Reading Ron's Review on the 1 disc version, he convinced me to buy.
    So much for holding out [​IMG] Curses at Ron's review[​IMG]

    Disney really loves you guys!

    I'm holding out for a special edition, with (hopefully) DTS.

    I'm lso gonna wait for the SE, or at least that's what I'm hoping for.I guess the reason why there's only one disc now has to do with the release date. Usually Disney would have brought out the DVD next year (that's what they did with their other summer releases) AFAIK it is a first that they are available b4 christmas. So maybe they just didn't have enopugh time to make a SE. but knwing disney it will certainly come.

    Anyone remember when we all thought Pocahontas
    was going to get a SE, or at least a new transfer???
    hmmmmmmm.
    (Granted, we have, I think, more than a few murmurs about
    a SE for Lilo & Stitch, but my "out" is
    that I have relatives
    who couldn't really care less about extras, and so I can
    pass along the 1 disc DVD should the 2 disc set arrive.)

    I love Lilo and Stitch too much to wait. It wouldn't bother me to have 2 editions of the film.

    Whenever I upgrade to a special edition I usually just pass along the non-SE to a family member. Sometime I even think they don't buy certain titles because they know I will probably just give it to them. [​IMG]
