3.0 out of 5 stars Stitched up again, 29 May 2013
This review is from: Finding Nemo [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I don't know what it is, but Disney seem determined to short change customers in the U.K. The American release of The Incredibles on Blu-ray came as a 4-disc behemoth. Here in the U.K. it was released as a paltry one-disc.

And so, with arguably Pixar's most popular film - Finding Nemo - celebrating a 10-year anniversary to boot, you would expect something special from the house of Mouse. The U.S. got a lavish 2-disc edition back before Christmas, with a host of special features. The U.K. edition creeps out 6 months later with little or no fanfare and is missing a few special features.

Gone are the days when Disney ported everything over from previous DVD releases - now we're just getting the semi-skimmed version of releases and it's just not on. Shame on you Disney!

Compared to the U.S. version, we have been significantly short-changed when it comes to extras. We are missing:

Cine-Explore
Making Nemo
Exploring the Reef
Studio Tour
Old School
Deleted Scenes
Outtakes
Publicity Pieces
Mr. Ray's Encyclopedia

The consolation is that with less extras on disc the film has more room to 'breathe' and to be fair, the picture is gorgeous. Perhaps with less on the disc we'll get a higher bit rate. Maybe.

Totally agree. I discovered that the US bluray release of The Incredibles was Region Free, so I ordered that from Amazon.com Not sure if the US Bluray of Finding Nemo is also Region free. If so, worth going to Amazon.com again. Disney treat us appalingly compared to the US - they must still be smarting about the initial failure of EuroDisney!!

As far as I know, Disney blurays are not locked to specific region so should play quite freely over here. I have also looked at buying titles from US due to the lack of extras. Check this site out which gives full reviews (inc Region coding) for bluray titles: www.blu-ray.com

Thanks R.Lucie and promaboss - really useful info and I'll check out the sites you cite (no pun intended!).
If Disney gave us like for like with our Cousins across the water, it would be a lot less hassle...
