    MOTU 1987 Movie Blu-ray coming!

    From Jim Bowers:
    Pat Miller, the master colorist at Warner Bros., has begun mastering Masters of the Universe tonight for Blu-ray. He told me that the film is in bad shape and the opticals need a lot of work. I know the movie is a guilty pleasure for some of you, so soon you will have another 80s Cannon film to enjoy!

    I have already seen the movie in HD broadcast. I wonder where it was mastered from because it looked decent.

    Awesome! The DVD is great, but I may have to get the blu-ray (especially if they have some cool special features).

    The Toy Masters documentary looks great, it would be a crime not to included it. I can't imagine that WB would do a Blu-ray without extra's like extended scenes and directory commentary.

    How awesome would it be if Mattel got the toy rights in conjunction with the release of the Blu-ray. One can hope.

    I was asked to leave this off the main page for now. I guessing the plans for the DVD haven't been finalized, so I'm guessing we need to wait for an official announcement before putting it on the main page.

    I did ask the Toy Masters guys if they or Goddard's material might be incorporated into such a release. They said:
    "Honestly, I wouldn't hold out hope. But anything's possible. The good news is, either way, you guys will get to see it!"

    Hopefully it can be actually confirmed soon.
    The news-bit from Jim Bowers was really exciting thing to hear, but for all we know whole thing might be scrapped.

    I'm just wondering: Why didn't they use the previous HD master they already aired?

    Does it come with any special features? It doesn't say.
    ...or did I miss something?

    I remember when they remastered the original Star Wars trilogy. They replaced old scenes with new computer generated scenes and even added in new sequences in entirely. I'd certainly buy a Blu Ray player if they gave MOTU this same treatment!

    Please leave it be.....don't mess with it to much.

    I wish they did a comic book continuation to the movie (what exactly happened after the movie , would Skelly seek revenge etc ??) and included it as a bonus......never gonna happen though.
    Don't you have better thing to do than read this stupid signature

    A comic continuation would be an amazing bonus!! I hope they include it! If they did one for the 40th MYP episode, why not the 1987 film?

    Anyway, I can't wait for this blu-ray! A free digital copy with the blu-ray would be nice as well!

    BTW: I hope that they use the Drew Struzan poster art for the cover of the blu-ray!
