Same here. As for An American Tail, I wish they had copied Disney and bundled it with the sequel.

This is a MUST OWN title. Hope this Don Bluth film gets treated better than The Secret Of Nimh !!

Considering the film and An American Tail: Fievel Goes West are two of my favorite childhood films, I am very disappointed that the sequel is not release simultaneously.

Definite must-buy! I kinda hope we get Fievel Goes West too. Sorry...I was the right age when that came out.

Kinda disappointed that there's no new bonus features added for enthusiasts of the film, but having this film released on blu-ray in matted widescreen ratio is better than nothing (and I agree that Universal could've used that extra space for its sequel, nevermind the third movie that no one cares about).

No commentary? I really enjoyed the commentaries on the other Bluth blurays :/

Can't get worse-looking the the last batch of Disney releases. I thought Nimh had good color saturation and clean lines/contrast, and that's what matters to me more than a digital restoration that removes all dirt/hairs/scratches/specks. This had better be the theatrial aspect ratio, though.

Based on the lack of attention to supplements, I find it hard to believe they will pay much attention to the restoration either. This will very likely get a poor to mediocre transfer and some coloring book artwork. Shame, but I guess it's better than what Disney has done recently.

i remember this one as a child, was the original sound mix Dolby Stereo or mono? i know this gets a very nice DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix.

since i know with 2 unrelated titles where each had dolby stereo as the original mix (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) both had to have their audio designs struck in a new master for the modern age.

The last classic i remember the Lion King was Dolby Digital as opposed to analog, the process of sound remastering was easier on it than the aforementioned titles. since both those other 2 were dolby analog when they were given to theaters, they had to both be remixed.
