Ed Wood SE...cancelled?

That's what DVD Empire tells me:

Dear Customer

We have just been informed that Disney has cancelled the release of "Ed Wood: The Special Edition" due to unforseen circumstances.. We are going to change the title to TBA in our database in case they decide to change the release after all. This will leave your order in our system and guarantee you get a copy when the movie is released.

WHAT ?!?!?!

Man, if this is the case I'm going to be really !! pissed. I just checked most of the sites and all of them still have it listed as 2/3 or 2/4 except for:

DVD Empire (no release date)
DDD (I can't even find it on their site now)

Otherwise all the other large online distributors still show it on schedule.

If this is true, I feel for you guys. I wasn't planning on picking this up since I have the R2, so it doesn't really effect me. I do know a lot of people who have been waiting on this release though.

I wonder what the reason is now?

I've been waiting on this for what seems like forever. Let's just hope that DVD Empire is wrong on this one.

This is ridiculous! They delayed it a year and a half ago, and now, after all this time, when it's only 10 days away, they delay it for "unforseen circumstances"??

I sure hope DVDEmpire's info is wrong!

This is a shame...who would have thought that Disney would delay the release of such a heavily-anticipated title..oh, wait, still don't have those Disney Treasures wave 3 tins...nevermind.

It was just there a couple of hours ago. I looked it up when I saw this thread.

This sucks.

I bet they are going to sit on this until after oscars so they can see if Big Fish wins any adwards and then release it about the same time as Big Fish hits DVD. They are doing the same thing with Mary Poppins & Princess Diaries 2

They're waiting to see if the Princess Diaries 2 wins any awards?

It's still available for preorder on Amazon, which is where I ordered mine. *Crosses fingers* Maybe I'll still get it (like some people got Duel).

I was afraid of this. I went to place a pre-order for Ed Wood on DDD last night, and it no longer appeared when I searched for it. One second later, my first thought was "Oh, crap, those M-F-ers at Disney have done it again."

Does anyone remember the reason that was given for the last delay ? Was it a distribution rights dispute, or some question of re-doing content on the last release ?

Everyone gripes about how the other major studios and DVD companies handle DVD releases, but there is no question in my mind that Disney is the bottom of the barrel.

This bullshit with Disney delaying titles is getting out of hand.

Disney put a feature on the R1 release that they didn't have R1 rights for. It' was originally held up while they tried to get the rights.

Glad I've got the R2!
