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!

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.

Format: Blu-ray
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...

This is one my all-time favorite musicals. It's quirky and funny and one of a kind.

I've seen and performed in this play many times. The play has a VERY different ending than the movie version, SO I was really excited when I found the director's cut that offered the alternative ending. However, I was skeptical when purchasing this disk because I wanted to have the OPTION of the original or alternative endings. While reading reviews, one of them said that both endings were offered, so I decided to buy this disk.

This is why I'm disappointed:
> The alternative ending offered in the director's cut is WEIRD. It is not like any of them I have seen before and it seems out of place and excessive. (It is still worth watching if you are a fan of the movie. But it probably is not what you are expecting.)

> More importantly, this disk DOES NOT offer multiple endings. The alternative ending is all that you get, and you have no option watch the original theatrical ending.

It is still worth purchasing this movie because it is hard to go wrong with Little Shop of Horrors, and 90% of the movie is just as charming as ever. Just be warned that the only ending offered with the Director's Cut is alternative one.

alternate ending
The alternate ending, which is the original ending in the stage musical and the original Roger Corman film, was released on laser disc some years ago, but not on the DVD. I would love for the DVD to be reissued again with the alternate ending. Also, I think the disc needs a re-mastering because... Read More
