I feel that this deserves a good release, a decent anamorphic transfer along with Dolby 5.1.
An audio commentary by some fire guy would interesting along with a howard commentary too.
Come on this is a very popular film, and you have the ride at your studios so make an effort with the release

Thanks

I totally agree with you Jez. Universal please release a special edition of this film. I have been holding out on buying this title for the longest time.

"commentary by some fire guy"

How about fire marshall Bill..."LET ME SHOW YA SOMETHIN!"

Seriously, a SE of this film is long overdue. At least give us a new anamorphic transfer.

This was rumored to be in the works a while back. I wonder what the holdup is?
It's one of Ron Howard's best.

I'll go for one. I got rid of my earlier version long ago because the picture was such atrocious, that I knew I'd never watch it again.
Please, a CE/UE with a possible DTS track would be great!

It would be great if Universal could include a DTS soundtrack for a Backdraft SE dvd.

This film needs special edition treatment! Bought the old version and unloaded it almost immediately. C'mon Universal, gives us a special release like you did for Howard's Apollo 13.
