1.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Film - Disney short-changing UK blu-ray customers, 5 May 2011
By 
This review is from: The Incredibles [Blu-ray] [2004] (Blu-ray)
This is a fantastic film - one of Pixar's best and as good as the Toy Story films in my view (high praise indeed!)

However for the upcoming blu-ray release Disney UK appears to have decided to release a single disc version with minimal extras. The recent US version was a four(yes four) disc set. It included the now obligatory digital copy and DVD version of the film which seems to be one of Disney's selling points (Buy ANOTHER DVD copy of a film you have already!) But the package also includes an additional blu-ray disc with 8 hours of extras. What do UK buyers get? Looks like a single disc without even all the extras that were on the 2 disc DVD. If Disney UK want to continue selling blu-ray's maybe they should ask their friends in the US office for a few tips as it seems to be better value to import titles from the US than to make do with the UK hatchet job on offer.

Do you actually have any proof that it'll be a single disc release, or are you simply going by the notoriously inaccurate Amazon product description? Might be worthwhile waiting to see what the official specs are before "reviewing" a product that isn't available for almost two months...

If you want the 4-disc US release, why not buy it? It is region free after all!

I'm sorry but I really don't get you people who believe that 'extras' are the most important feature as far as blu ray movies go. I'm more interested in the film, its picture and sound quality and frankly couldn't give a monkeys about the jolly extra's. I very rarely watch them so you can stick your 1 star rating up your cornhole, Bob.

It really is disappointing, and what's even more disappointing is that people in this comments section seem to not even care that they're still having to pay full price for what is essentially a bare bones release. It wouldn't be so bad if the US also received a bare bones release, but considering they've already released an excellent edition of The Incredibles stateside, it makes absolutely no sense to short-change the UK fans. Ah well, at least on the bright side the US release is also actually cheaper to import than buying the UK edition. There was always speculation we'd be receiving the dreaded 1-disc treatment but it seems pretty certain now it will be 1-disc from all the rumours and talk from Disney UK. A very disappointing release for everyone, this should be around 10 if it's just going to be pretty bare bones.

Why don't you send Disney UK a 'strongly worded' letter of complaint? No good whining on here about it as I doubt Disney reps are reading your comments.

It is nice to have some goid special features but in the case of Pixar im just happy with a stunning image, maybe an original short or two and thats it.
Its all about the movies, and on that point alone Pixar ALWAYS deliver the goods.
