What we think we know: the audio tracks will be offered in both the original uncensored version and the "family friendly" editions. Viewers may select which one they prefer before starting the movie (and presumably during.)
What we don't know: whether this has been restored from the film, or is a transfer from the previous master for the DVD.
Given the hype generally surrounding remastered movies, I suspect a transfer.
Still - better than what we had available in the past. I pre-ordered.
Any word about extras on the BluRay? I'm really tired of "Combo Packs" too. Why would I want a DVD of a BluRay movie? Especially when I bought the DVD when it first came out originally! Unless they make the DVD a digital copy, then yes, give it to me! I'm sure there are deleted scenes or some old makings of... that could be put on the BluRay. Dig into the archives!
The combo packs are actually great for parents. They can play the BluRay disc in their BluRay player but they can also have the DVD handy for when they travel to play in car DVD players, at other houses that might not have a BluRay player, or even on another TV that their BluRay player isn't hooked up to.
I do agree with you to an extent. I am a parent as well and see the benefit for the combo pack. And maybe for movies like Toy Story and stuff, more mainstream popular stuff, then fine, yes make a combo pack. But for movies like this and other mildly obscure films and animations, especially those that have already been released on DVD, it's quite a rip off to those previous owners. So in paying $15-$20 to buy this movie the first time it was released on DVD, now it's going to cost $15 to get it on BluRay / DVD Combo. So basically I paid for something I now get for free? Even more so, the fact that the single DVD is still available in stores. I could understand if the movie had never been released on DVD or the DVD had been out of print for years, but neither are the case. I would prefer to have a double disc of extras and bonus content or at least an digital copy to put on my kids iPod. But an extra copy of the movie on DVD is a waste of plastic and packaging in my opinion.
