    I see this is coming out this Tuesday (2/11/03). I wanted to know if this is the same version I remembered from when I was a little kid, so I tried searching here (no results other than the Weekly Roundup), and at DVD Planet, and at imdb.com. All I can find out about this is that it's a "beautifully illustrated" version of the classic children's book, and is narrated by Meryl Streep. Also, it's from 1984.

    I saw a movie based on the book as a film in preschool and that was before 1984. It wasn't illustrated; it was live-action.

    Can anyone tell me definitively if what's coming out on Tuesday is probably the same thing that I remember, or is there more than one movie based on the book, or what?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    There was a live-action movie? wow

    I just remember two different animated films

    one was basically very low framerate stills fading into one another (very artsy).

    and the other was fully animated and had a scene with toy soldiers and a toy tank.

    I *LOVE* this feature. I have the CD with Winston on the Piano and Streep doing the talking...pure beauty. The DVD with picture-added will be a treasure.

    Preordering right now!!!
