    Umm...is this a big deal? Is it a price drop?

    As far as i know it is readily available.

    Just curious...

    I could be wrong, but I believe the current release is non-anamorpic and nearly a bare bones disk.

    There are two "current" releases. The collector's edition went out of print for a while, but can still be found if you look hard enough. The more readily available version is barebones. Looks like they're putting the CE back in circulation [​IMG]

    The standard edition is a non-anamorphic single dic (WS and P&S) and is readily available.

    The CE is anamorphic (don't know or care if it also has a P&S transfer on the same disc), and is NOT currently in print. But, copies can be found at variuos only vendors and at E-Bay.

    I know this because three days ago, I ordered the CE from Digital Eyes (about $30), unaware that it was being re-released. I recently got a WS HD ready TV, and the non-anamorphic transfer just doesn't look that great, nor should it giving up a whole chunk of resolution.

    Don't know if the price will drop, but for you guys, I hope so. For my sake, I hope NOT!!!

    This is great news for people who do not have it. I count it as one of the best discs ever in my collection. I have the two disc "skinny" keepcase.

    This is my least favorite of the Pixar films, but still a must-buy in anamorphic widescreen.

    Just a nit about the 4x3 versions. They're not P&S, the shots were actually recomposed on the computer to account for the different aspect ratio.

    The anamorphic widescreen is incredible though. It's Pixar's only 2.35 movie.

    Actually, with "Monsters Inc.", I think the rendered the whole thing fullscreen and matted it down to widescreen (which is still the original intended aspect ratio), making the fullscreen version closer to open matte than being recomposited like "A Bug's Life" and "Toy Story 2".
