why do they keep bringing new versions of this dvd?
Who cares? It's great!
Not sure, Kieran, but it's likely because the previous version has gone out of print, and since they have to make more anyway, they may as well update it with extras, in this case, a new show, which is a great way to advertise and make fans. I'm happy
Oh yeah, it's a great cover, too
Does anyone know if this actually has the "cracking contraptions" segments that previous DVDs have contained? I already have the three old regular W&G episodes, but would like to get that extra twenty minutes of shorts that previous DVDs (which are no longer in print) contained.
Oh yeah, I should point out I'm in the US and trying to get these such that they'll play on various DVD Players in the house (not just the region-free player purchased for UK edition 'Ali G' episodes)
EDogg, I just ordered the DVD yesterday. When it arrives, I'll let you know if the CCs are included.
Cracking Contraptions is only available as extras in Curse of The Were Rabbit. I think its only with the double disk special edition. It could still be in there, anyway. Hope I have helped!
Looking on the website of this new W & G DVD release I noticed that the run time is 190 mins, I have an earlier W & G DVD release "Wallace & Gromit : Three Cracking Adventures " ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wallace-Gromit-Three-Cracking-Adventures/dp/B00009PBTI/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1197118270&sr=1-5 ) which runs for 96 mins, this new DVD does appear to be a fair bit longer.
jills it would be a nice idea if you could give us a full review (brake-down of all the content) on the new DVD when you have watched it Thanks.
Yeah, good idea, Cavor!
Shall do. Amazon says it has been sent, so it should be soon.
Cavor, I think the run time may be longer on the latest release because of the Shaun the Sheep episodes (it's very good if you haven't watched yet), but hopefully the Contraptions are on it as well. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit DVD I have has only a few of them. Since it isn't mentioned as a bonus feature, I worry that they're not included There's still a chance, of course
(I thought I'd add that 3 Adventures is on sale at Amazon until the end of the year. I got it for $11)
Hi jills you do have a point about the shaun the sheep episodes extending this new DVD but that should only put about an extra 20 mins on to it?
Yeah, that's right Cavor, there's still time unaccounted for, even if they ran more than 20 minutes plus the trailers. If no one else here has watched it yet we'll just have to wait until mine arrives...
I'm pleased to be the bearer of good news. In the nicely packaged new DVD release, we all get Cracking Contraptions, two episodes of Shaun the Sheep, a "featurette" which I'll comment on when I've viewed it, plus "Inside the Wrong Trousers" and Nick Park's commentary on all 3 shorts. Yay! Cavor, you were right! Now I've finally replaced my W&G VHS tapes. Enjoy, everyone!
(That's the fastest shipping I've seen from Amazon in a long time!)
Thanks a bunch for posting the infor - this is terrific news!!! I'm off to Amazon to order it now!
I've noticed that this DVD was released by HIT Entertament and 20th Century Fox
I found it funny that the HIT announcement that the dvd comes with their Autoplay feature "for our convenience" actually slows down the starting of it hehe
Where did 20th Century Fox come in to Aardman?
Which Shaun the Sheep episodes are inculded? Plus I have 3 Cracking Adventures. It has the three flims, a film about the making of Wallace and Gromit (called The Amazing World of Wallace and Gromit) and 12 BBC 1 Christmas indents.
i wish the wallace and gromit dvd would have play all
yes i have that dvd(but in video) cavor
