I am glad to see that they included the 3 cartoons that were made for theatrical release, and previously included in the Vista Edition. "Roller-coaster rabbit" and "Trail mix-up" are amongst the best pieces of animation ever made, a true reverence to the contribution in the medium made by Tex Avery.

I almost thought the title was 25th, that is so large it is annoying.

It's nice to see Disney taking the words "Anniversary Edition" to heart this time and throwing us a few extras instead of just a bare bones disc. Day 1, might still hold on to my Vista Series DVD though.

@DefTechPioElite

Just 'cause it's Disney doesn't mean they'll do it right. They've dumped out some catalog titles that have had little work done on them in terms of restoration, and most their older animated films are basically devoid of film grain which makes zero sense (they still usually look great but I remember watching Snow White and thinking something looked kind of weird about it). But, I have total faith that this Roger Rabbit release will be great. I can't wait to get it!

I had the original VHS release when I was a kid. I probably watched it like 30 times. The first scene with Baby Herman I watched repeatedly! As an adult I probably wouldn't enjoy it as much but, I'm very interested in seeing the restored shorts and maybe some of the other extras.

So the big question is will this be censored or the original theatrical version? I'm guessing censored.

Toefur: And I'm guessing not censored. No reason to censor a BD release.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Can't wait to see it on Blu-ray!

I wish they would include a digital copy as well.

Love the list of bonus features - glad to see this is getting the special edition treatment it deserves! 3/12/13 is going to be an expensive day for me!

I'll probably wait to find out whether it's the theatrical release or an altered home-video version; it's a movie I want, but I dislike the change made for the DVD.

By the way, according to Snopes.com, we're talking about only four frames (constituting 1/6th of a second) taken out for the so-called "censored" edition. And looking at some of the frames in question, it looks to me like it's all in the minds of the sad little boys who get a big charge out of thinking that an animated cartoon character is nude.
