Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
At the time of this post in June 2012, no information from Amazon exists on this product page. This is the press release stuff I was able to cull from the internet.

Tech specs will include a 1080p digitally remastered high definition transfer for the Blu-ray. Audio will be mixed in 5.1 Dolby TrueHD for the BD.

This release will not only include the theatrical cut (on BD), but also a completely restored, never-before-seen Director's Cut of the film, featuring a drastically different, and much darker, 20-minute alternate ending.

Here's a note about the restoration direct from Warner, "The footage of the original ending was previously available only in black & white in the extra content of a limited number of copies of a DVD edition released in 1998. Now, with the help of production notes from Frank Oz and others on the film's creative team, WHV has meticulously restored and digitally remastered the ending, in full color, with the elaborate special effects in tact. Sound has also been rebuilt and mixed in Dolby 5.1. The theatrical version has also been re-mastered."

Extras will include the following (no word yet on which of these extras are exclusive to Blu-ray):
*Theatrical version of the film with optional commentary
*The Director's Cut featuring the newly restored 20-minute alternate ending
*Digitally re-mastered picture and 5.1 sound on both versions
*"Frank Oz and Little Shop of Horrors: The Director's Cut," an introduction by Frank Oz with Richard Conway
*"A Story of Little Shop of Horrors" (behind-the-scenes documentary)
*Outtakes and deleted scenes with optional commentary
*Two theatrical trailers

The Blu-ray will also include a 40-page Digibook with production notes, stills and rare insights.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE version to have (so why is it not available?) May 25, 1999
By A Customer
Recently checked this out over the weekend, prepared to merely re-watch an old favorite-but boy, is there a lot of cool "add ons" in this version made for DVD! First of all, the film comes letterboxed-only (some people like having the choice, but if you've seen this in a movie theater, you notice a LOT of stuff cut off at the edges by "blowing it up" to full screen), a walk through commentary by legendary puppeteer (voice of ms. piggy/grover) turned director-Frank Oz that lends a humourous and insightful (if sometimes technical)overview from the one guy most qualified to talk about its behind the scenes trials and tribualations. You'll be surprised at just how much work and planning really went into it. And, best of all-the legendary original ending! Yes, it's true, the off-broadway musical (and even the Corman B-movie original) had a VERY different ending. This is where Oz's comments come in particularly handy as first hand guide to the very tough decisions a filmaker has to make regarding his work if the people paying for it ultimately call the shots. So why is it not available? Well, turns out the lost ending footage is owned by producer David Geffen, who did not clear or approve its inclusion on the disc. Could be because presented with another choice, fans of this movie may agree with Oz (and screenwriter Howard Ashman, who died in 1991) on the original ending having a much greater impact. So if you can find this disc, by all means check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're a fan, DEFINITELY buy this! October 17, 2012
By Oliver
The transfer is great - the colors are much more vibrant than on the DVD, and the picture is sharper.
The sound is incredible -- the best mix of this movie, I've ever heard in any medium.
It's worth the price just to finally see the cut original ending.
... and the little note from Frank Oz about the cut ending is pretty great.

if you're a fan of this movie -- YOU NEED THIS.


... more of a point of discussion (the cut ending in great to finally see -- FIVE stars for this blu-ray)

... Technically, the cut ending of the movie is the ending of the off-broadway show, it's the same song, etc -- but i can see why audiences didn't spark to the movie's end. For one thing - it's played much sadder in the movie than the show. The slow death of Audrey, the close-ups of her tears, Seymour being devoured sooooo slowly... it's sad. in the musical, it all happens pretty quick, and it's pretty campy.

AND -- more importantly -- the musical ends on an UPBEAT note:
Sure, seymour and Audrey die -- but they come right back on stage, to sing the final song. They're dead for thirty seconds, then they come out again, singing. And they're still together.
In Frank Oz's ending they die, and are gone forever, the monsters take over the world.

In the SHOW's ending -- the last lines are:
"if we fight it, we still got a chance!"

then Seymour and Audrey sing to each other (albeit, as flowers) "We've got tomorrow!!!"
"Don't fee the plants"

Yes they die -- but they come back, sing a really fun song, and say that they have tomorrow...
the movie ends with their death, and the end of the world...

5.0 out of 5 stars definite must-have for a real fan August 9, 2008
This dvd was released around March of 1998. (Which makes it rare to begin with, since dvd's really didn't even catch on until 2000.) Warner Bros. released this dvd, and about 1 or 2 days later, all the copies were recalled. Apparently, The alternate ending (which has the audrey II spawning, and creating more plants, and then using this plant army to dominate the entire world!!) was left on the cutting room floor, because, according to the commentary, when they screened this ending with a test audience, they were horrified... so it was relpaced with the happy ending. (The plant dies, everyone lives, yay!!!) However, when they released the dvd, they added this alternate ending in the special features, apparently without the permission of Frank Oz, the director. So he filed a lawsuit against warner bros., forcing them to recall all the unsold copies of the film. (The dvd was later re-released, without the alternate ending......)

Can You Actually Review A Product Not Yet Released?
I agree: Almost all of the "reviews" of the LSOH-Director's Cut rave about the restoration of the alternate ending. Really?? I read Amazon's product description and it says - I quote - "NOTE: This disc does not contain the alternate ending found on the previously-issued DVD".... Read More
