As much of a CGI hater as I am, I have to say medieval fantasy is a genre that really benefits from it. You want big dragons and flying monsters and magic and whatnot and CGI helps sell that a lot, as seen in the Lord of the Rings movies, which truly waited for the right time to happen. I like Willow a lot, and am glad it looks so real and grounded, but it definitely feels limited as a fantasy film, like it couldn't be as fantastical as it wanted to be. Ridley Scott's Legend might be the only one from the 80's that doesn't feel that way to me.

Lord of the Rings was balanced though, used CGI when needed and practical when possible, which is the ideal. The Hobbit went full cartoon, lost that real feeling world and doesn't feel medieval fantasy to me.

Saw this movie at best buy a month or two back for 15 or so, passed on it in favour of some other titles, decided I would get it some other time. Just today I decided I would see about picking it up. And dear lord these prices are making me hang my head with regret and shame at my decision.

Hopefully Disney will see the value in putting out a new edition.
Perhaps we'll get a new 30th Anniversary Edition in 2018.

Why is a new edition even necessary?

Oh, I wasn't aware. I usually pay more attention to the UK market as far OOP situations go.

This is for the US disc. It's been OOP for a while now.

Well, they don't necessarily need a new edition - just do another production run of the current title.

Well, I did have to keep the DVD too as Davis' commentary was not ported over to the current BD. So, that is one thing that the DVD has that the BD doesn't.

And that's one of the better actor commentaries I've ever listened to. Davis shares some very interesting and funny stories about the production. It's really too bad they didn't carry it over.

The US and UK editions are now OOP.

I suspect the reason is because the distribution rights have reverted back to Disney.

This means if it is to be re-released Disney will have to put out their own edition - they can't just re-print the 20th Century Fox disc.

They actually reverted back to Lucasfilm which is in turn owned by Disney. There is nothing stopping Lucasfilm from re-issuing a new disc with the same content except if any added material has clearance restrictions from Fox.

Default Willow (25th Anniversary Edition) - March 12,2013 Review

Willow was never an MGM home video release let alone one of the MGM titles distributed on video by Fox.

It was an MGM theatrical release but it was released on VHS and laserdisc by Columbia/Tri-Star and on DVD and Blu-ray by Fox.

You're right, thanks for the correction. I've edited my post to properly reflect this.

The rights are back with Lucasfilm, Disney being the parent company.

I'm assuming then any re-release would be put out by Disney Home Entertainment like The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Rebels.

I think they might just sit on it for another 18 months and put out a 30th Anniversary Edition in 2018. Disney likes anniversary editions

However, it is nice that Blu-ray restores the MGM logo (the period accurate one, I think). It wasn't on the 2001 DVD.
