Serenity Collector's Edition DVD gets release date. According to the Universal website, it'll be out in the States on the 21st of August.

Though there's only minimal official details about it at the moment, Joss posted about the DVD extras back in March.

COO L I went to preorder but it said discontinued ..?
Damnit, that's not tomorrow ! What's the point in even making wishes in the first place, hmm ?

Still, something to look forward to. Hopefully details about the extras will be made official fairly soon.
I cannot wait for this to come out in the UK!

You know, I've heard there may be some new key art on it...!

Anyone know of a proposed UK release date yet?
Not sure if it's getting a UK release. Hopefully so!
They'd be daft not to release it over here surely ? Though bizarrely, it'll almost definitely be cheaper to get it from the States anyway, at least at first, given the exchange rate.

New key art ? Hmm, that always seemed a bit up in the air to me, I just wish we'd had some kind of emphatic confirmation. ;-).
Shiny.
And what a day of difference makes, I checked the website yesterday morning, and there was still no news, and today it changed.

Wonder if we`ll get more llamas in the cover art.... kidding. I`m really wondering what will be the cover art for this release.

What I also find to be interesting, that it'll be in Digipack package. Don`t know about the previous Region 1 or 2 releases, but the two Region 4 DVDs I own (an Aussie double-disk and a Brazilian single-disk) were all in Amaray package. I don`t know why but digipack packages tend to look cooler on the shelf, somehow. Last weekend I was just comparing how the Pirates of the Caribeean (yes, I am a fan of some Jerry Bruckheimer / Johnny Depp blockbuster action) looked different, as "Curse of the Black Pear" was in one of those old black amaray packages, while "Dead Man's Chest" was in a pretty Digipack package.

I doubt it`ll will get a release here in Brazil, so I'll definetely import a copy from the US.
Is there an Inara Aerobic session? Otherwise I'm not so sure about this.
*goes to pre-order and start sitting by mailbox till August* ;-)
I was wondering which of us would be the one to see this and get it posted, when it happened. I had UNi Home Ent checked everyday, and had their "coming soon" pages auto-checked by changedetect.com, heh.

Ah hah! bix's secret is finally revealed! :D
"artwork not available" hahah
it would be funny if they released the DVD with a sign "insert your own artwork" on the cover. ANd I will wait till i can order on amazon maybe before pre-ordering it. And ooo with this, Babylon 5 Voices in the dark coming out in July and Sanctuary coming out online in a few weeks, ooo I will be having a geekified summer :P(hope I can afford it all).
Yay! Something super fantastic to mark in August! I cannot wait for this.

Also, thanks Kurya, I am totally going to forget about Sanctuary if I'm not careful.
Well mifeng, if you are interested they have a 5 minute sneak preview of the first/second webisode, and a 1 minute intro from the star/exec producer on the site right now.
"artwork not available"

According the AICN the llama is holding out for more money.
That and the llama wants to have more coverage on the new DVD cover, not a small(but memorable) part of the cover. And make sure the artist gets the good side of the llama. Its too bad they cant just replace the llama with another one *stupid llama unions" :P.
And remember: Attend one of this year's charity Serenity screenings and you could win a copy of this Collector's Edition DVD (or a voucher redeemable for one if it's not ready yet).
It comes out the same day as Dexter. I wonder which one I'll buy first, heh.

That hi-tech gadget whatjamuchcallit is beyond me. When the pages got updated it was usually around 9-10am.

And why has there never been a mention of this Serenity release?

Amazon Link:

Brilliant choice of companion films for Joss' movie *ahem*.
Yep, that pairing is a little bizarre. Eagerly awaiting shiny new extras, I too am still on the edge of my seat to see if there will be new key art, oh the suspense!

Under normal circumstances, we probably would have double-posted, but that's when I was at Kinko's making packets of charity screening promotinal crap to go to local comics shops before tomorrow. Heh.

(At least I was off doing something Browncoaty when I missed this.)

And what about of this release.

It doesn't matter that much, but I just found out our local Uni recently made our local release of Serenity cheaper, It's like half the price, compared to when I bought it.
August is looking geekier and geekier with Serenity CE and Heroes S1 DVDs being released within a week of each other. :)
Plasticy money was all ready to order direct from Universal.

B!X, I got this high-tech thing to check on page changes too. Favorites. Click. Use eyesight. Compare to image stored in brain.

But then, I didn't have this page in my favorites before. Now it is. Wanna order now.....
