This is perfect for many Disney fans who might have missed out on the original release. With the start of a new series of Blu-rays for the classic Disney library, I hope this means old releases I missed out on will be out as well. Such as Pinocchio and Fantasia.

Are you willing to give yourself over to absolute pleasure?
Some exceptionally glorious news that I am truly honored to announce. Edward Scissorhands, A personal favorite film of mine and a renowned cult classic, will be reissued on Blu-ray October 13th. Packaged in a nice collector’s giftset which includes custom paper dolls, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, and a topiary air freshener that smells like fresh-cut grass.
However, the best thing about this 25th Anniversary re-release is the blu-ray will contain a brand new 4K Blu-ray transfer.
Considering the original blu-ray contained a less than stellar MPEG-2 codec, Edward Scissorhands has gotten the Blu-ray treatment it rightfully deserves.
A slightly missed opportunity is that we have no new special features. All bonus content has been recycled from the original release.

I look forward to the release of this set and hope some of you do as well!
I think it’s no surprise that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is one of, if not THE most anticipated film of the year. As to be expected, Disney and 20th Century Fox are re-releasing the original and prequel trilogy, otherwise known as The Complete Saga…soon to be the almost complete saga. First, on October 13th a repackage of The Complete Saga on Blu-ray with Darth Vader front and center on the box.
And for all the collector’s out there, if you wait until November 13th you can get all six films in some very slick Limited Edition Steelbooks.
Now I know many of you are disappointed that these are just repackages of the first Blu-ray release. Believe me, as a fan I am just as disappointed. But, for all we know, something good will happen in the future. For some of us, we still have our VHS and/or LaserDiscs of the unaltered version of the trilogy to look back on.
But, for those who are not bothered by Greedo shooting first or Vader screaming no, these releases are a nice addition to any movie lover’s collection.
Disney has announced that they will be releasing a brand new Blu-ray box set containing eleven Miyazaki films exclusively on Amazon on November 17th! The films included in this release are listed below.
The Castle of Cagliostro
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
Castle in the Sky
My Neighbor Totoro
Kiki’s Delivery Service
Howl’s Moving Castle
The Wind Rises
This set also contains some exclusive material. Including a bonus disc with the following extra content!
Yuki no Taiyo (Yuki’s Sun) – A 1972 TV pilot based on an original manga by Tetsuya Chiba, directed by Hayao Miyazaki who was also in charge of storyboards and key animation.
Akado Suzunosuke (Little Samurai) – Three episodes (Episode 26, 27 & 41) of the hit 1972 anime series with storyboarding and more by Hayao Miyazaki.

As well as a collector’s book: The Great Dichotomy: Looking at the Works of Hayao Miyazaki by Tomohiro Machiyama!
AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! The sequel to the record-breaking summer blockbuster The Avengers is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on October 2nd!

Jackson), as well as newcomers Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) as they fend off the new threat to earth: Ultron (James Spader)
The upcoming Blu-ray release also comes with some bonus content.
Bippity-boppity-boo! Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, which I’ve heard great things about (Compared to Disney’s last live-action attempt: Maleficent) is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 15th! I’m sure that I’ll review this title closer to its release date, but for all of those excited for this announcement we have an exclusive clip, an alternate opening to the film!
