The 40th edition set includes:a 2 discs that include wonderful extras and a vivid new print and sound presentation of the film. The commentary track is an great combination of new tracks (including Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews having a great time together), along with archival materials. There's a fun 50-minute documentary parents will really enjoy, and a created-for-kids "Movie Magic" extra. The red carpet footage of the world premiere has been restored with vivid color (like the slipcase booklet below). A deconstructing a special-effects sequence-shows how much simpler the effects were in some ways, harder in others, than current techniques. There is also rehearsal footage, that is wonderful to view (can you believe this was Julie Andrew's FIRST film?). Even the sound has been reconstructed for the movie, giving it new complexities! This is more like the movie originally was!
