    Although we may only be receiving a 1-disc DVD of the film, at least there are more bonus features on this particular disc than on Pixar’s previous film, Cars. I’ll have fun with this DVD, no matter how much or how little content is included with it….

    Thanks for the information!

    Sigh. I could see that coming. So this is the way it is ay? No more commentaries, no more 2-disc dvd sets. It’s not fair, just because I cant afford a Blu-ray player. If these Blu-rays played on regular dvd players, then sure, I’d buy them! Looks like the exact same extras as the Cars dvd: a behind-the-scenes thing, a new short, the short shown with the movie, and deleted scenes…

    Well, I’m a bit disappointed with the one-disc edition. Maybe they are waiting for a ten year anniversary to release a special edition? 🙁

  4. Harmen says:

    Looking at that retail price it seems that we’re dealing with a 2-disc release here. I mean, who ever paid 30 bucks for a single disc DVD?

  5. Victoria says:

    Blu-ray sucks. I love DVD.

  6. Jon says:

    Gee, this is a shame. I really enjoy the Pixar commentaries (Finding Nemo has gotta be my favourite). They cater towards the older Pixar fans quite a lot and are really interesting, not to mention hilarious.
    I guess there will be a special edition release eventually that’ll have all the extra stuff we want.

  7. Hannah says:

    WHAT!? No commentary?

    It was bad enough when Cars was lacking any commentary, but two in a row is just sad. Not fun.

    But I think the cover design is great!!

  8. Andy says:

    Yep, it looks like double-dipping is the future for Pixar. Let everyone buy the skimpy version then 12 months or so later, release a full-featured set so you can hit the fans again.

    Sure takes the gloss off an otherwise brilliant production house when they see us as little more than cash-cows.

    Brad Bird’s commentary on The Incredibles was the best of the lot. I want my commentaries!

    If these reportsd are complete and correct then I’ll be waiting till this one hits the discount shelves.

    the only problem is it might take a few years until it hits the discount shelf….and that counts for every disney DVD….they just don’t go on discount…

    at least not here in europe
