DVD Talk review of 'Scrooged'

I read Paul Mavis's DVD review of Scrooged at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=47089 and...

would just like to mention that Paramount is sitting on an a completed Special Edition with a remastered transfer and feature length Donner commentary. Why they just re-released the old disc baffles me.

Even more interesting, is the new artwork you describe is straight from the shelved SE.

Inexplicable. Too bad, too.

I was describing it too, in a thread in DVD Talk. The banners and bows are missing, and the title is given a new treatment, but otherwise it is identical.

I saw it a few weeks before Paul's review and I bought it just to make sure it didn't secretly have the Yule Love It! edition inside. No dice. Too bad, since that version would make more sense alongside the "Looking Good, Feeling Good" Trading Places and the "Those Aren't Pillows!" Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (Paramount's 2010 "holiday art" trilogy).

Re: DVD Talk review of 'Scrooged'

It's strange, too, because what was sent to me obviously is intended as some kind of new repackaging, because of the goofy "window pane" slipcover. So if you're going to go to that trouble...why not release the "Yule Love It" version while you're at it???

Maybe it's a last-minute legal hang-up of some kind.

Dickens would have wanted the special edition!

Four years they've been holding the SE hostage.

The last known final specs were:

*Audio Commentary by director Richard Donner
*"A Christmas to Remember" featurette
*"Updating Ebenezer" featurette
*"Bringing the Ghosts to Life" featurette
*"The Look of 'Scrooged'" featurette
*"On the Set with Bill Murray - Parts 1 and 2" featurette
*"Showest Message from Bill Murray" feature
*Theatrical Trailer

Maybe we'll one day get it on Blu-ray and get those features?

Wish there was some holiday coming up that they could tie that release to.
