Default Spaceballs 25th Anniversary Edition - August 7th 2012

As you might've heard:

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8879

In August, MGM and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will bring the 25th Anniversary Edition of Spaceballs to Blu-ray. Director Mel Brooks (Blazing Saddles) applies his cracked comedy perspective to this cult classic, which spoofs the world of George Lucas' Star Wars franchise.

From Fox's official synopsis:

"When the evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis, Ghostbusters) attempts to steal all the air from planet Druidia, a determined Druish Princess (Daphne Zuniga, Gross Anatomy), a clueless rogue (Bill Pullman, Independence Day), and a half-man/half-dog creature who's his own best friend (John Candy, Planes, Trains, & Automobiles) set out to stop him. But with the forces of darkness closing in on them at ludicrous speed, they'll need the help of a wise imp named Yogurt (Brooks) and the mystical power of 'The Schwartz' to bring peace and merchandising rights to the entire galaxy!"

Fox's Blu-ray presents the film in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio alongside a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track and the following supplements:

All-new Farce Yourself! Spaceballs and the Skroobing of Sci-Fi featurette
Commentary by Mel Brooks
Additional Commentary Tracks:
Mawgese
Dinkese
Behind-the-scenes featurettes:
Spaceballs: The Documentary
In Conversation: Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
John Candy: Comic Spirit

Film flubs:

Grabs Himself Early

More Than His Head
No End in Sight
Track Behind Dot

The 25th Anniversary Edition of Spaceballs is expected to street on August 7th.

The new featurette alone is enough for me to replace my old Blu-ray copy, I'll be buying! I also hope there will be a new remastered transfer (even though I think the current Blu transfer looks good already).

I see no reason to purchase this again if one has already purchased the first BD.

So what exactly is the difference in these two releases in terms of extras? Also, was it remastered for this 25th Anniversary Edition?

I see no need to re-buy this. Although I do dig the new cover art.

Yeah, not worth the triple dip in my case.

The cover art is actually very good. I don't own this yet, but the current edition is normally $7.99. Anyone know this release's SRP?

The review for this movie on this site is very positive. The video/audio/extras are all very good so why on earth would they release this movie again when they have so many other titles that actually need a new release? For example, where on earth was a proper 25th anniversary release of Rocky last year, a movie that actually needs a new transfer not to mention extras of which the first release had none. That's just one example, there are many other examples - both from movies that need to be re-released with better transfers/extras, as well as movies that weren't released on blu at all. Man, these studios can really be annoying with moves like this.

Because it's the 25th Anniversary and it's an easy cash grab? The fact that they don't really have to put much effort into this release and still make $$$ is a good thing from their perspective. Warner does this all the time. It's not even like the film has total market saturation or anything. The previous release is in less than 2,000 member collections here. There's plenty of people including myself who don't yet own it. While it would be nice for them to remaster titles that need it, it doesn't always make good financial sense to do so.

I find the whole idea of a double dip on this, very amusing. Spaceballs was probably lucky to get one BD release, never mind two.

Maybe it's someone over at MGM's favourite movie.
