    I'll be getting The Santa Clause as long as it's in the OAR. [​IMG]

    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. [​IMG]

    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

    ™ Holiday recipes

    ™ Exclusive The Santa Clause 2 Sneak Peek

    ™ Widescreen 1.85:1 aspect ratio

    ™ Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound

    ™ THX Certified

    ™ 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.
