I'll be getting The Santa Clause as long as it's in the OAR.
Perhaps Enchanted is coming out at 1.66 for the first time on DVD?
Tom Thumb and Thumbelina direct to video? I thought they only do that with shoddy sequels.
Can't wait for The Santa Clause, it better be anamorphic widescreen. DVDFile says it's release date is Sept. 24th though.
I have to watch that movie at least once a year at Christmas time.
The specs on the press release are somewhat underwhelming, and no mention of ANAMORPHIC enhancement. They might just be re-using the old transfer. If they are, it certainly could be a lot worse, since the non-anamorphic transfer looks pretty good. Of course "Special Edition" should mean 16:9 transfer, but at least it is WIDESCREEN.
Here are the specs:
Disney’s THE SANTA CLAUSE SPECIAL EDITION DVD includes the features:
Exclusive Set Top Game “Fly Santa’s Sleigh”
DVD Rom screensaver advent calendar
DVD-Rom “Letter to Santa” with personalized replies
Elf training featurette
Exclusive The Santa Clause 2 Sneak Peek
Widescreen 1.85:1 aspect ratio
Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound
French language track
Spanish language track
Then again, the old disc wasn't THX-Certified, so maybe there will be a new 16:9-enhanced trailer. Basically, it seems that they're repackaging this solely to hype the sequel. The original release had a trailer, which isn't listed here. No deleted scenes (which we see in the trailer), no commentary, no documentary/featurette. Somewhat disappointing.
I really don't see anything "special" about those special edition specs, aside from being in widescreen. (was the previous release anamorphic?)
The original disc was letterbox with just a trailer. This one looks to add 16:9 enhancement with some supplements. It might be worth the upgrade if BVHE does decide to give it a new transfer.
But what about us types who want to watch "The Ref" at Chrismastime? Come on, Disney/MIramax!
