you can save the film onto your computer or psp or ps3 or ipod video player,so unless your son watch's movies on one of them then i would not bother.If you have a multi region dvd player check out the uk amazon website for it,you get the same features and not the digital copy plus you get an exclusive wall*e slinky.

You should really correct your review.

Separate the digital copy because that's the 3rd disc. Also, there's nothing on that digital copy you don't get on the 2-disc version, so your assertion is incorrect. The digital copy is simply the same as the first disc, but in standard rez that you can install on your computer (strangely enough you could ALSO put the ORIGINAL DVD in your computer and play it there). No 'extra' content. You do get charged 5 extra bucks for your trouble though. Even though you already bought the real thing that you can also play in your computer, car, etc. (not iPod but you get my point). Usually without a choice when it comes to Blu-ray which is even more insane. Except that finally you have the choice to tell Disney whether you want it or not. And then Amazon goes and discounts the Non Digital copy version LESS, making them the same.

Except for a bit of landfill. The irony.

Johnny Logan, no point for your 3-year-old. Do people actually have computers with DVD drives that CAN'T play ordinary DVDs? Nooooooo.

From what I've read on other sites (and I don't know if they are correct), the 3rd disc includes more than just the digital copy, just as Paul has reported. We'll see what's really on the 3rd disc when it comes out.

The point of the digital copy is a) to be able to play it on a computer WITHOUT needing to insert the disc every time, and b) to enable the movie to be transferred to a portable movie player such as an iPod. It's not that your computer can't play a DVD, it's that you might not want your kids swapping discs in and out and getting them scratched. Depending on the format and your setup, you may also be able to stream the movie from your computer to your TV. It's nice to be able to see all of your movies in an on-screen menu and pick tonight's viewing pleasure using your remote control. Sure beats digging through a bookshelf full of physical discs. There is software that can rip a copy of a DVD to your hard drive, creating the equivalent of the digital copy supplied on disc 3, but the use of this software is illegal in the United States (see the current lawsuit against Real Networks because of their RealDVD ripping software).

How is it that people can give a 5-star rating to a product that hasn't been released? You may have seen the movie, but you certainly haven't seen the extras. Are they worth the extra money compared to the single disk version? You can't possibly know. Reflexive 5-star reviews like this turn Amazon's rating system into a joke.

I agree with you! 25 posts and no one has actually seen the disc and everything that goes with it! I guess the woman who's daughther predicted the 3 disc has ESP or something?

Actually, I HAVE seen the disc; got an early preview copy. And I didn't have to use ESP to review it.

The third disk contains ONLY a digital copy of the film. Completely useless as you can create a "digital copy" from the regular DVD if you have a DVD ripping tool (which Vista even includes for free).

I paid at least $15 extra for the third disk version, versus the 2-disk version and expected what Amazon claims it is: Three-disk special edition PLUS a digital copy. In reality it is a Two-disk special edition + digital copy, or three disk version INCLUDING the digital copy.

Seriously, I feel cheated. I will NEVER pay extra for a "digital copy" disk again. Ever.
