- You finally get stuff that was only on the ephemeral Japanese DVD which goes for about $250 now. This most notably includes the two pilot films produce by a couple of directors. They are basically short films in themselves not looking much like the movie or following the story, but charming in their own right.
- It has the making of stuff from the laserdisc. These aren't that great though since it just focuses on the writers and voice actors of the movie, which were the great failings here. It would be nice if any of those features had given credit to the animators or their process, but no dice. This movie apparently has a long troubled history with rotating staff and joint efforts from a Japanese and U.S. studio. I hope someday we might get a nice big history book here.
- Finally some concept and production art! I don't know if these were on the Japanese DVD, but I have been looking for some of this stuff forever. There's a Japanese art book but there's hardly any pictures and it's mostly storyboards, so this Blu-ray has a lot of new great stuff. I don't think it has the Brian Froud concepts though, which I still would like to see one day.
- The Japanese dub is available for those that want to pretend that this is an anime. :)
There are a couple of downsides. The transfer could be a little bit sharper and there's some jitter, but I'm guessing Eastern Star did the best they could.Read more ›

Though this film deserves a full-blown special edition designed with adults in mind--or at the very least a book detailing its troubled production history--the best treatment it's had to date was the 2004 TMS/Funimation/Our Time Family Entertainment DVD from 2004. That disc has long been out of print and fetching inflated prices via eBay and various Amazon Marketplace sellers.
But now it's back. And despite Amazon incorrectly listing the aspect ratio as 1.33:1 and the distributor as Platinum Disc, rest assured that this is EXACTLY the same disc content as the 2004 edition: the film is presented in ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN, with 5.1 Surround Sound (plus a basic Stereo option) plus all the extras from the original release, which are decidedly aimed at children unfortunately. You get: static-screen character profiles; a Slumberland Singalong featuring three songs from the film; a "Make Your Own Royal Scepter" craft project (text frames) and four trailers, one of which is for a computer-animated children's feature called A WOBOTS CHRISTMAS that looked so horrendously out-of-date even in 2004 that it could only be a Christian film, plus three other trailers for much better productions: the likewise computer-generated Canadian feature SANTA CLAUS BROTHERS (2001), the flat-animated short NOEL NOEL (also from Canada), and a lengthy spot for one of the early ARTHUR DVDs.Read more ›
I was so frustrated, that I decided to consult with my friends. Turns out, they too had a vague recollection of that "amazing movie" they had seen as children. It wasn't until a few years later that I remember the protagonist's name- Nemo. I Google searched that sucker til I found this gem.
I just finished watching it myself, and I'm floored. All the nostalgic moments are breath-taking. I felt all of the excitement from my childhood. I am definitely bringing this over to my friends' house next week.
With amazing animation, a trippy story, and a memorable cast; I recommend this for the grown ups that want to revist their childhood, or the toddlers that want to see a great fantasy adventure.
