    Have any of the e-tailers started to ship Aladdin R1 or R2? I've spotted the Movietyme banner that says it's shipping but the website doesn't say it's in stock?

    I have received my Collector's DVD Gift Set from Movietyme today. Havn't had chance to play it yet as I am at work. And just in case you are wanting to know, I escaped the import duty.

    Received my R2 Aladdin Trilogy from Play today.
    Well done to Play for the early delivery but thumbs down to Disney for very little effort on what could have been a great set.
    No DTS anywhere and a very disappointing Return of Jafar 'Special Edition' which is in stereo and 4:3 format.
    There is no booklet or chapter listing and the packaging is a run-of-the-mill digi-pack. To find out what the extra features are you'll have to load the discs as there is nothing on the packaging to help you navigate through any of the material.

    *Have now had chance to look at all four discs and can add the following: The Aladdin SE is as described on a number of websites and is the only part of this trilogy that has had specs released. It has a great 5.1 THX sound track and the visuals are tight. All I would say is that it contains no restored or additional scenes. I was led to believe it would include a new song but in fact it is just a new song which has been recorded in DD5.1 and then dumped into the extras without any animation. The video is simply Clay Aikin standing at a mic singing.
    The 66 minute Return of Jafar is awful. It doesn't look much better than the video and the sound is very poor. You'll need the amp up by another 50% for this compared to the other two discs. Presumably this 4:3, stereo presentation is made special because you have two games and an index that jumps to all the songs in the film and puts subtitles to them (hence it then becomes a sing-a-long).
    The 40 Thieves is 5.1 and widescreen. It is the same as the original DVD release of the stand alone film except it to now has a game, a Disneypedia about 'wish making' (I kid you not!) and a sing-a-long index.
    All three films are preceeded by trailers for The Incrdibles, Bambi SE, Mulan SE and a couple of others.*

    Anyone know if the R3 release is upto the same standard as the R1 and R2 release as I am really tempted by the low price CDWow are offering it at but dont want something which is missing half the extras compared to the R1 release and has bad picture/sound quality.
