    Mind you--my wife and I have no kids. But we both loved this movie. The SE will definitely be in my collection.

    It MUST contain the "For The Birds" short on it (and I assume it will) or it will fall a little flat for me, no matter how much other stuff they cram on there.

    OK..we knew it was coming later this year, I am fine with that. I know that the disc will be incredible, but what about the specs. I will wait for those, then buy a bigger drool bucket to replace the one I am using now.

    And dont you find it a little bit strange that this is coming out only a month before Beauty and the Beast? I would think Disney would have wanted to space out their huge titles instead of dropping two bombs on us in a months time.

    I secretly am hoping that the UPC symbol will be printed over Mike Wazowski's face on the cover art. Does that make me a bad person?

    This one actually scared my three year old son so bad I had to leave the theater with him for about 5 min until I could talk him into going back in.
    I'm sure it will go better from the safety zone of the couch. [​IMG] poor kid.

    Personally I think Monsters, Inc. is by far the best thing Pixar have ever done - and this is from someone who worships at the altar of Woody and Buzz!

    I'm disappointed I have to wait so long, but I'm looking forward to it. I hope they do a bang-up job like with Toy Story 1/2. And, of course, include "For the Birds"

    I hope they include the Monster's Inc. trailer that was shown in front of Harry Potter...now that was brilliant marketing.

    Yes - this is great news! Really enjoyed this one! Steve Buscemi was excellent!

    Good to hear that For The Birds will be included as well.

    As usual, PIXAR leads the way. Great movie, great sounding disc. Stuff for the kids (even though I have none) and stuff for the fans. PIXAR nails it 3/3 on SE's.
    Worth the (painful) wait[​IMG]
    Take care,
    Chuck
