Are you getting the Narnia EE?

I own the single disc edition and I"m at odds whether to get the EE. I knew it was coming out which is why I chose the single disc in the first place.

I for one don't care about documentaries etc. So the extended cut is all I"m after. Is it worth the double dip? I guess the rebate deal for $10.00 back is nice as well.

I found this which details the extended footage.

NarniaWeb

Thoughts?

I will if I can find a good price. I liked the movie and think, with repeated viewings, it will get better and better.

I'm getting the gift set for Christmas. I have the two disc, but as soon as this was announced, I knew I wanted to get it. If I wasn't getting it for Christmas, I would probably just buy it myself. Looks really quality and worth the money, IMO.

No, cause this seems kinda like the extended version of King Kong (extended, but not enough to get me to double-dip)...

What are the odds that the $10 rebate won't involve defacing the packaging in some way? If I have to rip up the box, then I won't be doing it.


***EDIT: Just read the review:
"Proofs-of-purchase from both the single- or two-disc version and the extend edition are required"
That really sucks. Guess I won't be sending in for the rebate.

Yes, but only because I don't have the first (I will be able to get the rebate though)

Otherwise I don't usually double dip. The only things I've double dipped on are:
the LOTR movies and Kingdom of Heaven. Both of them I bought the long versions first and then double dipped the theatrical cut only because they were very cheap.

hell no, as noted in the DVD TALK Review, no dvd is worth double-dipping unless it's on the same quality level of a LORD OF THE RINGS extended cut. I

I'm curious about the extended cut. Still debating on whether to pick this up. I might rent it if Nextflix gets it.

I will get it. I have the single disc release. Held off buying the original 2 disc because I knew the EE was coming.

I never even got the first DVD. That movie was way over-rated.

No. It sounds like it's mostly just more battle scenes and a reaction shot here and there, but not really more story (as opposed to the LOTR extended editions where they had parts of the story that were missing from the theatrical cut). I never get around to watching most extras anyway so that would be no reason for me to buy.

I didn't buy the first one since I knew an EE was coming out, and now that it's out it doesn't sound worth buying so I end up with neither one.

I bought the EE as soon as it became available...............what a bloody rip-off. An extra 5 mins or so of a battle that deserved more. I should slap myself for wasting 25

I am. This movie is LOTR light for me and will be a welcome addition to my collection. However, I think what I might do from now on is pass on original releases for the eventual double dip. This set comes with 4 discs so there's more than just the extended movie, I'm thinking.

i ordered yesterday from buy.com with $10 off from google checkout.

i did not buy the original release since i was going to wait for the EE. even if the EE doesn't have many more scenes, i'm still looking forward to watching the extras.

Has anyone heard if they include the battle more in depth between the witch and aslan? I heard somewhere they do but the link I posted didn't mention it.
