Bit the bullet and paid the damn $38 for The Long Halloween. I was hoping the price would go down, but it hasn't budged on Amazon or Best Buy.

I've been stubbornly holding out as well. Now I'm afraid it might randomly go up.

Don't hold me to it but I think those more expensive animated UHDs will fall in price over the next two months. Or not, it does not seem like WB is manufacturing huge quantities of the UHDs like their BD counterparts.

I've usually been able to get the animated UHDs for cheap on eBay -- even very close to release -- but Long Halloween does seem like it's bucking that trend. It's also not on sale at GRUV (unlike the individual halves on BD), which makes me wonder if it's maybe being handled by the MOD side of things.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

The deluxe edition of The Long Halloween is just the two parts as one movie and some new features right?

I think the two parts are still on separate discs, but I'm not sure.

Itís a seamless merging of the two halves on a single disc, although itís pretty clear storywise where the split originally was.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

If I remember correctly, you may actually lose a couple bonus features with the single UHD edition.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I have the two parts individually on Blu-ray and I think thatís good enough for me. Doubt Iíll buy the new version. To me where the split happens is a natural stopping point and a good break.

I actually thought the two parts were a tad slow moving even though I enjoyed the adaptation as a whole. Iím not sure if Iíd want to watch the whole thing all in one sitting.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I didn't realize the special features were different. Here's a comparison, with anything in bold not appearing on the other release
Part One
DC Showcase: "The Losers" short (16:04) [also available on Constantine: House of Mystery collection]
"Sneak Peeks"
- "Long Halloween, Part Two" (9:10)
- "The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1" (12:34)
- "Gotham By Gaslight" (8:29)
Bonus Cartoons from Batman: The Animated Series
- “Christmas With the Joker” (22:22)
- “It’s Never Too Late” (22:24)
Part Two
"The Blue Beetle" DC Showcase Animated Short (15:30) [also available on Constantine: House of Mystery collection]
Sneak Peek of "Injustice" sneak peak (7:48)
"Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part Two" preview (6:53)
"Batman: Hush" preview (9:17)
"From the Vault"
- "Two-Face - Part One" Batman: The Animated Series episode (22:27)
- "Two-Face - Part Two" Batman: The Animated Series episode (22:30)
Deluxe Edition
"The Long Halloween: Evolution of Evil" featurette (24:56)
"From the Vault" Batman: The Animated Series episodes
- "Christmas with the Joker" (22:22)
- "It's Never Too Late" (22:24)
- "Two-Face - Part One" (22:27)
- "Two-Face - Part Two" (22:30)
"Sneak Peeks"
- "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part One" (12:36)
- "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part Two" (6:53)
- "Batman: Gotham by Gaslight" (8:30)
- "Batman: Hush" (9:17)
So basically, you're choosing between a couple sneak peaks and a short documentary (assuming you get House of Mystery)..

I’m an OCD completist, so could be biased, but I swear that no BD or UHD “upgrade” is ever fully complete. There is almost always something not carried over.
