    Finally a date for the series to start too bad we going to have wait until February to see a new episode sine they will be showing the first two episodes a week after the other. I am guessing America was getting too close to Japan that we had to have this delay.

    ...so they're airing the prologue to Mewtwo's awakening nearly three months after the movie it's serving as a lead-in to debuts in the U.S.?

    Yeah, that totally makes sense.


    Also I guess Japan's handed over their HD remasters of the movies? Or is this going to be something that TPCI does themselves?

    THAT'S the theme song?! While the original Gen I Theme was a true Gem, i'm not really sure what to think about this remix. I flat-out hated the remix used in the first movie, but this version? I dunno. I think i'll need to listen to it more in full and without a narrator talking over it.

    I would venture a guess that it's probably a place holder theme. Seems to me that it's unlikely they'll reuse the original.

    That said, the remix used in season 4 was pretty good...

    It's hard to believe they would go through the trouble to restore the film and not put it out for commercial sale. Of course, it's been out of print in the US since 2009, so any new showing of it is pretty significant.

    TPCI most likely isn't the one restoring the film. They're probably just taking the HD remaster that was released on Blu-ray in Japan a little over a year ago and swapping out the Japanese title screen / end credits with the English ones.

    Considering how TPCi still hasn't released any of the current movies on blu-ray yet (despite them being released on blu-ray since the Victini pair), I do wonder if they'd bother releasing the first movie on the format. Blu-Ray sales for the Genesect and the Legend Awakened will probably be higher than Mewtwo Strikes Back.

    They certainly wouldn't be doing it themselves. There are a number of companies that do this kind of work. I wouldn't be surprised if what you say is the case, but it's also possible that the original English version was restored as well.

    Maybe, but Miramax seems to be doing just fine with their 4-7 Blu-Ray. I can only assume one based on the first three movies would do even better.

    If a HD master is already available somewhere in the world, it would simply be a waste of money for TPCi to do their own remaster, when all they need to do is acquire the recent Japanese one and resync the audio and other fine-tuning.

    Possibly, but I'm still waiting on them to release a new movie on blu-ray.

    We don't really know who's footing the bill for the remaster (most likely whoever stands to gain the most from it financially). It could be Warner Bros. or Viz.

    Well, for movies 12-15, you can import the ones from Australia-they're marked region B but play just fine on region A players (aside from potential 50hz issues).
