The Emperor's New Groove SE: October 18th

From Davis DVD:

"Also due on October 18th is The Emperor's New Groove: The New Groove Edition. This one arrives with a 1.66 anamorphic transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks (no DTS this time). Extras will include an audio commentary with director Mark Dindal and producer Randy Fulmer, a deleted scene, behind-the-scenes featurettes (character voices, CGI and the animation team's research trip to Peru), two music videos with Sting and Rascal Flatts, set-top game, a sneak peek at the upcoming sequel "Kronk's New Groove" and a DVD-ROM game demo. Retail is $29.99."

Considering that the current two disc version is still in print, and that this appears to have no new features and just drops the DTS, may I be the first to ask...why?

Wish they'd do SE's for the ones that need it...Hercules and Hunchback come to mind, and Lilo & Stitch.

Let me guess...a re-issue of Atlantis is next...

Same here.

I understand why Tarzan is coming out since it is OOP but why are they doing a SE on something that is already out as a CE. The only could be is that maybe it is a 1 disc version. Either way I will skip it.

It has a preview for the sequel (which will probably be second rate and suck).

We already have The Ultimate Groove. Why the hell do we need this one?

Just a marketing ploy to tie-in with the sequel, which, as dsa_shea noted, will probably be crap. Watch out for these kinds of re-releases.

I think the old 2-disc SE cover looks way cooler and better.

So in other words, this release is just like the new Tarzan DVD, meaning that the original OOP 2-Disc set is the set for adults to own.

Keeping my old sets for both Tarzan and Groove. I really miss the more sophisticated cover art that we got when Disney did seperate one and two disc sets, though I don't miss how much extra they were back then.. so I guess it's a fair trade.

Are there any plans on doing anything like this for Atlantis: The Lost Empire in the future?

OK. So, to summarize, apart from potentially upgraded audio and video, it looks like the only new material on this 'special edition' is the inclusion of a deleted scene? Is that correct?
