    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!

    This is the cover. The same basic shot we are used to.



    Although I'd like there to be some, I doubt there will be any new extras. I'd be surprised if WB puts up the cash for the documentary.

    I could have sworn I saw an interview with the director that said he's working on a "making of" project for this film.
    I love it when a plan comes together.

    There was an independently produced documentary on the movie that will likely be included with the Toy Masters documentary when it hits DVD if Warner Brothers doesn't want it for this release.

    Bummer, the Struzan poster is so much better. I'm so stoked for this, though. Any chance of a digital copy?

    Or the Earl Norem poster -- either would be a welcome change from the image WB has been using for years.

    lets hope the release is multi regional, there is little to no chance of this getting a uk release

    Hooray for Blu-Ray!

    Yah Boo for region coding....

    My DVD is region free, but my PS3 is not. I can understand regions locks for big-budget modern movies getting a worldwide release, but older, more niche titles like this? Makes no sense, especially when, like GI JOE RENEGADES on Blu-Ray, there's absolutely no chancof a release making it to UK shores... so what exactly are they protecting against?

    It doesn't appear like there will be a new DVD release, but the current one is still available for cheap. So far, it doesn't appear like this blu-ray release will have any new features.

    I wish they would say something.
    As Jim Bowers (from CapedWonder) had heard from his friend at WB that they were doing some optical work? (does that mean restoration?)
    So we gotta wait and see.

    I think so. The blu-ray release should definitely look and sound better than the previous DVD release.

    Even that could be mentioned with this release. I feel if they do any restoration; it's for the better.

    Firstly, this being my first post on the forums in ages, there is a portion of interview with Gary Goddard explaining several making of aspects in MOTU the live action movie. And though I would have loved to have seen this on the blu-ray release, we are only getting the bare bones version that came about with the initial DVD release. Trailer, commentary by Goddard, and little else. The only difference to this blu-ray edition will be the remastering to accommodate for high definition viewing. That being said, I am a huge fan of the MOTU movie even though there are several things I nitpick on. I believe we all as He-Fans do it to this film now or have done so in the past as kids. In the age of the technological advancements, nostalgia still overpowers all here. The animated series made it's loud and proud comeback, and now we have Dolph Drago Lundgren being the live representation of what we've only seen animation and toys interpret.

    Long story shortened, I am so grateful for the bare bones blu-ray release that it would tide me over until the decision to eventually do a making of properly. Let's get the surviving cast members to tell their tales. Heck, even get some of them for the commentary for an anniversary edition if and/or whenever it happens.

    25th Anniversary MOTU Movie Blu-Ray

    Amazon has it for pre-order with a release date of October 2nd. I searched and only found older threads where people were hoping for the Blu-ray. Am I missing something or is there no thread for the about to be released Blu-Ray?

    Rejoice Masters, the Blu-Ray version of Langella's Skeletor is upon us!!

    Hardly any new info received on this in several months. Has anyone who Pre-ordered received a copy? I need to know whether the disc is region free. I may order from Amazon.

    As it stands I don't know whether this is even still on for an October 2nd review!

    OK, I've done a little research into this blu-ray release, and a reputable UK based DVD importers have listed this on their site as being multi-region. This is great news. I've ordered myself a copy I'll confirm whether it is, indeed multi-region when my copy is delivered, but I'm sure it'll be fine. Reasonable price, too, £12.99 and £2.50 postage from the US (3-5 business days) which is fantastic I think

    I just visited the bestbuy.com website, and on the details section of the MOTU blu ray, the Additional Features of the disc read: Commentary by Gary Goddard, Alternate Ending, (New $2K budget) Theatrical Trailer. Other than the Trailer and the commentary to which I know is on the standard disc of the movie, I do hope that the Alternate Ending, and the (New $2K budget) is in fact included. I've been sold with the announcement of the movie coming out on blu ray, but with hopefully these features being included, I'm look more forward to this disc even more.

    Ooh! An alternative ending! I bet it's going to be minimally different seeing as according to the documentary except I saw on YouTube, by the time they were finishing the ending they were literally packing up as the film was effectively canned! What does 'new 2k budget' refer to? Does that relate to what they've spent on remastering the movie?

    I am super excited for this... but the release also brought a bummer with it for me. WB put up an official Facebook page for the Blu-Ray release, which caused Facebook to delete my longstanding fan page for the film. Since the new page is just a company page for the Blu-Ray release, I highly doubt it will ever see any real updates or posts beyond the Blu-Ray sales news, which makes killing off my page hurt just a bit...

    My actual site survived the transition, so for those who followed it through the fan page, you'll have to bookmark the page now or something- http://www.motumovie.com/
