    Are there any plans for this film on DVD, especially the director's cut or workprint?

    I'm sure many fans of this film would also be interested in a Criterion Collection version. [​IMG]

    I think Roy Disney said at some point the studio was going to attempt a reconstruction of Richard Williams' intended version.

    Yeah, Disney is trying to track down the original elements, but they haven't been found yet. They would like to do a reconstruction but can't do it yet.

    Perhaps they could release a DVD: The Thief and the Cobbler: A Work in Progress
    It would have the horrible Miramax version of the movie with Matthew Broderick and Jonathan Winters as well as all other available parts of the original film, and be accompanied by a documentary about how this film will hopefully oneday be restored.
