  • I want to thank Rugratskid for bringing this to my attention. Bagdasarian Productions plans to finally release the 1987 animated film on blu-ray disk in March of next year. What do you guys think of the release? Will you buy it?

    • I don't know if you can play Blu-rays on dvd players or computers but the this film has never been released in th UK (except cinemas maybe) and it's too expensive to import the dvd or vhs versions at the moment.

    • I don't use Blu Rays so I have a limited knowledge of them. From what I do know, you have to have a Blu Ray player. Traditional DVD players will not play them. Additionally, they can be difficult to play on computers; more so with computers that are not Windows-based. This being said, you might have to purchase software to recognize the disk if it isn't pre-installed on the computer. Some game systems, I believe, recognize them. Despite the difficulties, Blu Ray disk offer high quality image and sound.

      As for importing to the UK, the best I can say is to look online. There might be people willing to send a copy at lower prices compared to others. Or perhaps you could find someone in the UK that is selling their copy. Good luck.

    • NEW INFO: The new release features a digitally restored film with additional bonus content. The new content is likely to excite fans of this adventure. Additionally, the DVD cover artwork can be found on The Chipmunk Adventure page. Unfortunately, the release date has been push back two weeks, but pre-ordering is still an option.

      The blu-ray version, no. If you have a Windows-based computer with the approperiate software (which I do not know what that would be) or a newer game system (PS4 does play blu-ray and I'm pretty certain PS3 does to) you can play it. A standard DVD version with the same features (if I read the site right) is also being released if you don't have one of these players.

      No, it said it is 1.85:1. Now there is no aspect ratio listed for Amazon The one on www.blu-ray.com says it's 1.85:1 as well.

    • will it work on windows vista?

    • It will work on Windows 7, 8, Vista, and XP (if it is new enough to have a Blu-ray optical drive), but you must download the correct software for recognizing and decoding the disc if you don't have it (the software isn't standard on the majority of computers). This website can help. There might be some cheaper and easier options, but you'll have to look more into them. I don't know how much a separate blu-ray player is, but it might be a better choice.

    • According to the Barnes and Noble website, the special feature for the DVD/Blu-Ray is The Brave Chipmunks from The Alvin Show! This is really great, because it could spark more Alvin Show DVDs.

    • Could you post a link?

      Releasing more from The Alvin Show would definitely spark some interest. Many people would see the segment since everyone's been waiting for the blu-ray version of the movie.

      Edit: Nevermind, clicky.

    • Because buy things on Amazon America is extremely expensive if you want them to send it to China.
