Dust off your "inconceivable" jokes, because Rob Reiner's fantasy comedy is on the way this fall.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film's theatrical release, the new disc is slated for an October 2nd from Fox. And comparing it to the 2007 20th anniversary DVD (the 2009 Blu-ray was bare-bones), it looks like the studio has gone all-in in terms of packing it with new content, including a commentary by the film's director and a handful of new featurettes. Interestingly, it doesn't look like any of the features from that disc are making the jump to this one.
Here's what you get:
