    I got an e-mail from Amazon this morning saying that DVD's and Blu-rays are up for pre-order! We have four different versions of the movie available it seems.

    The "Wocka Wocka" Value Pack with the DVD, Blu-ray, digital copy and a download card for the soundtrack.

    DVD.

    No release date yet, but the cover art is nice! :)

    And I bet none of them have the extended edition we were hoping for.

    That's really depressing, but they make the DVD's before the movie even gets released to theaters now.

    Who wants to be the deleted stuff is ALL on the Blu-ray?

    The release date is march 20th!
    This is good for us uk fans as we have to wait til feb 10th to see the film in the uk cinemas, it will be still in some cinemas and we can buy the USA DVD on march 20th as long as you have a multi region DVD player!

    Where is Gonzo in the cover art of the first two DVD's? I can see his hands but where's his head? LOL

    I don't keep up with DVD releases but this seems really early for a pre-order, or is that just me?

    The good thing with pre-ordering with amazon is that if it gets released at a lower price, amazon will give it to you for the lower price

    I already pre-ordered the Wocka Wocka value pack- I will love having the digital copy on my (hopefully) Kindle Fire that I might be getting for christmas!

    Why are we already freaking out about not having the bonus features we want? They haven't announced a single bonus feature. Take a deep breath... I'm confident we'll see numerous deleted scenes and other bonus features on both the DVD and Blu-ray.

    Yeah, I'm sure it'll have all the deleted scenes, don't think Jason & Crew would let em get away without them.

    I really love the blu-ray covers, but I'm really missing Gonzo and Scooter! The Piggy from this actual movie is fantastic, I wish they woulda done the same for Kermit, instead of keeping Kermitbeak. :/

    Also, obviously it's the major fans who're gonna buy the super-duper packs, so now I'm buying the soundtrack twice? Hmm, well I guess I could give the code to someone on here (for the soundtrack that I already have), UNLESS the download includes alternate and bonus songs. Oooooooo... ;)

    The description for the DVD says it is 103 minutes. How long was the movie in the theaters?

    Well before I went to the movie I checked how long it is, it said it was 102 minutes. Maybe they extened it by one minute!

    Movie Theater sites list it as an hour and 38 mins, so that's 97 Mins.

    Simple.

    The hot new thing for companies is to just shove all the special features on Blu-Ray. Anyone see the Lion King re-release? The Blu ray had hours of bonus footage, the DVD release had some pathetic oh well, it's something.

    I don't want to go on a huge rant about that, but it's completely unfair and biased towards those who actually can afford Blu-rays and the huge LCD TV's that actually make enough of a difference.

    I'll still buy the DVD, but it'll be disappointing if all the deleted scenes aren't on both.

    I'm pretty disappointed there's no Bluray/DVD/Digital Copy version without the Soundtrack, considering I already have it. :grr:

    How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of Statler's head? I think Rowlf is about to find out.

    Even if I bought the soundtrack already, I wouldn't mind that at all. It means they at least gave you something. It's just the new standard of putting less on a DVD and charging the same amount that really gets to me. It's like they want to make DVD's obsolete faster and on purpose. That's the whole reason to buy those things. Bonuses.

    I'm glad about the movie being released so soon. But what about Season 4 of TMS?? Weren't we promised that it'd be out this year?? 2011's almost over! What's the holdup?

    That's wrong. It's 102 minutes.
