    In a studio marketing move to perhaps boost its pathetic box office total from last weekend, Variety is reporting that any forthcoming home releases of the Robert Rodriguez film will not include the material included on the theatrically released special edition. Haven't seen the film, so I don't know if the new footage is significant.

    You won't be missing much. The only extra footage in this so-called "special edition" is one very short scene of very little consequence that wasn't even that good.

    Isn't this one of those movies where a bare-bones DVD edition is being released, but a full-blown special edition will follow later?
    Well, maybe it's just a rumor. Here's what I found at DVDFile.com:

    So would there be a "Spy Kids: Special Edition: Special Edition"?
    HAHA...that could be confusing.

    I'll need to get HTF member Craig Crane to post in this thread, he met Rodriguez a while ago and they discussed an SE DVD of Spy Kids, definately sounds like one is in the making from what Craig said. He even posted a thread about the planned spec and his meet with the director some months back. Thing I remember most is the proposal of a "kids" 10 minute film school.
    Craig, where are ya?

    The Variety article implied a 1 time DVD.
