In October, Walt Disney Home Entertainment will bring The Santa Clause Trilogy to Blu-ray. This popular holiday-comedy franchise stars Tim Allen (Toy Story) as a workaholic single-father whose entire life changes when he learns he must become Santa Claus.
From Disney's official synopsis:
"Christmas gets a little nuttier when Scott Calvin (Allen) unknowingly inherits the role of the legendary St. Nick. His ordinary life snowballs into a hysterical series of outrageous events as he fills out his Santa suit, meets the future Mrs. Claus (Elizabeth Mitchell, Lost), and faces his ultimate test against the mischievous Jack Frost (Martin Short, Three Amigos!)."
Hope eventually they do them individually and the first one gets better features. Should be a big seller this Christmas, like I said before it's good to see anything make it to this format whether your a fan or not.
I had to check, as I thought more came with the special edition dvd of the first film, but it looks like all the extras. Day 1 buy of the full set, if the masters have been recently scanned or at least evaluated better than most Disney catalog BDs. Otherwise I'll hopefully pick it up in time for Christmas, if the price is right. Note to Disney: Do the masters right and I'll buy immediately. Use older masters that aren't optimal for BD and I'll still buy, but only when it's cheap enough, commensurate with the effort, or lack thereof. Hope to be buying this one sooner rather than later, after all you've hung on to them for 6 years, plenty of time to do them right.
They should do a real special edition for the first one. It's a classic. Include the deleted scenes like the ones in the trailer. Include the trailer again. Have the cast come back and talk about it. have a gag reel and other real features. "Have a piece of fruit for God's sake!" But its Disney, they're great with anniversary editions of live action films. At least its coming to bluray.
For the second film they should include the original teaser trailer from 2000 before they had troubles and had to stop production. but at least that one is on The Rookie DVD i think.
