Wallace and Gromit - A Matter of Loaf and Death (March 23)

The lovable duo from famed animator Nick Park returns with a new adventure.



Coming out on DVD/Bluray on the 23rd of March in the UK - this one should look pretty impressive in HiDef (now where's 'Curse of the Were-Rabbit'?? )

Holy crap, it's going to be on Blu Ray?! Of course it'll beregion locked, so we'll be screwed good and proper in the bum. I would love to have all of the Wallace and Gromit shorts on one snazzy Blu Ray. And where is Curse of the were Rabbit? Another great one. I'd say Chicken Run....but I would prefer much more if we got our fair share of W & G.

Already ordered this on blu-ray at the bargain price of GBP10 - as much Wallace & Gromit on blu as possible please, especially at this price!

Chicken Run already out on blu-ray in France and looks pretty good too, is English friendly (that is NO forced subs on English soundtrack) and is apparently region free (not verified as I am in Region B anyway).

'Matter of Loaf and Death's bluray has yet to be confirmed as being region locked - I really hope it's not. It's also annoying that no US release has been announced - what gives? I had read that they missed the deadline for submittion to the AMPAS (Academy Awards).

Correct, no Oscar this time around.

However, it won a BAFTA & Annie award, though.

Would there be any difference between the region 1 and 2 versions of this DVD? I live in America but have a region-free player and some region 2 DVDs of PAL TV shows. Wallace and Gromit isn't a TV show, so would they have to convert it or would the region 1 and 2 DVDs be the same? If there's no difference I'll wait for it to be released in America, but if not I can import it.

Great news according to blu-ray.com. All 4 shorts, including Matter of Loaf and Death are coming to Region A.

The 'Loaf and Death' Blu-ray is not region locked. However, the disc is encoded at 1080i50 resolution, which will be incompatible with most American Blu-ray players (including the PS3).
