Even though we know all of the contents already, it's about time Disney announced this. The gap between press release and release date for this must be the shortest for any Disney title. Speaking of which, I wonder when we'll be getting a proper press release (and cover art) for The Parent Trap: SE...

I agree with you Disneykid. I'm so surprised they never made a press release sooner than this.

:D Sounds like a great release! I'm so excited! Everything on here seems top-notch! I really like the structure of this DVD. Kids stuff, the movie, and commentary are on disk 1 and all the collector type stuff on disk 2. That's been what they've been leaning to, but this seems much more organized.

I saw this for the first time the other night on Disney, sad to say I wasn't exactly blown away. I may pick this one up eventually, but I've got a few more movies to get before I give it to much though.

Well, better later than never. Even though we already knew what would be included on the DVD, this has to be one of Disney's more complete press-releases, considering most of them are very vague as far as bonus features go (notice there's no "Much More" this time).

Let's hope this DVD will get more promotion when the release time draws near... I mean, "Pocahontas" is a successful movie in its own right and Disney wouldn't go to the expense of animating an all-new scene and creating a fancy trailer to end up releasing this film with little publicity, like they did with "Alice In Wonderland".

Even though I've already watched most of the bonus features (I have the LD extras taped), this is probably my most eagarly awaited title of the year... And after more than a year of waiting, it is finally coming in two months!

Looking forward to this a lot, as it is one of the last two titles from the '90s musicals streak that I grew up on which I still don't have on DVD (the other being Little Mermaid, which can basically count despite being 1989.) Also think the SE is long overdue, and can't wait to see If I Never Knew You in its proper spot in the film.

Although I love the music on this film, it's one of my least favorites disney films. However, seeing how much extra footage is included, there's no doubt that I'll buy it when it goes on sale it's first week at Wal-Mart for $15 + tax!
