I'd take a copy of the soundtrack over the Digibook any day! But a Digibook would be pretty cool too.

It sounds like there aren't any new extras. It would have been nice to include the 1981 HBO special if possible.

No that needs a separate release along with the recent Broadway version to play contrast and compare.

and the '81 version has been readily-available on DVD for years. No point in releasing it on Blu-ray anyway because its SD.

I'd call Ed Wood his best, but Pee-wee is a close second. Slightly off-topic, but I stumbled across this awesome Francis print (just click on it for the link):

Can't tell if this is a joke post or not.

I've been waiting for this to get a release. The current DVD looks terrible.

Tell me how a low-budget cable special shot on video in 1981 is going to benefit from being included on a Blu-ray disc. Better still: tell me why one would want to have SD content eat into the space available that could be better-used on a Blu-ray disc.

You can go to Amazon.com right now and buy the '81 DVD for $8.72 and not only will it play on your Blu-ray player it will play on your DVD player as well. You don't have to wait until October 4th to watch it either, you can have it tomorrow.

Furthermore, Warner Bros. doesn't even have the rights. Reubens owns the rights to pretty much everything but the two theatrical features (which are Warner Bros. and Paramount) and has licensed it all to Image. That goes for the '81 special, the entire run of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" (including the Christmas Special) and the '11 Special as well.

I got the '81 special for like... $5. New. At Half Price Books. 3 years ago.

As far as it being included in this release: No. Different companies own the rights to the special and this movie. It's not a Warners release. This is most likely going to be a straight port of the DVD with 1080p video, DTS-MA, and the same extras that will land either at or slightly after release, in a regular BD elite recyclable case with no insert besides a sheet of paper explaining that it is manufactured to the highest quality, for $9.99 or below.

Take that to the bank!

This should look, and sound fantastic in blu-ray. I love this movie, especially Danny Elfman's score. I'll still keep the DVD for now because, it have the isolated soundtrack, as one of the extra features.

I thought he was talking about an HBO special about the making of the movie. That I would've appreciated. I have to agree, though, if it's available on DVD and it isn't related to this movie, not much reason to include it. It would make more sense as a supplement on that release of the 2011 special.

That's where I think it'll make the most sense.

I was talking about the live show. I didn't realize it had been released on DVD already.
