E.T. - a 3 disc edition?
Not content with releasing a two-disc version of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, we now have word that Universal are releasing a three-disc set which fills the gap of the missing 1982 edition of the film. UK customers can expect the three-disc release to feature both the new special edition and 1982 versions of the film to be included in this new release along with all the extras that are included in the current special edition.
Advance word is that we can also expect the original version of the film to feature a DTS soundtrack - (Update 2!) - which could prove to be a bonus in comparison to the Region 1 3-disc set that has seen the 1982 versions DTS track (as found on the 2-disc R1 release) replaced with French and Spanish DD5.1 Audio tracks that presumably, would not be necessary on the UK Region 2 release.
E.T. The Extra Terrestrial: Collector's Edition will be released in the UK on 9 December retailing at £27.99.
