2003 Feb 25 Region 2 DVD goes on sale. There are 2 versions. The Regular edition only has the movie. But there is also the Collector's Box which contains:
  • a second disc with extras (30 minutes)
  • a book with storyboards and production material (400 pages)
  • a booklet
  • a postcard book
  • an original hand towel
    But the best of all: BOTH VERSIONS HAVE ENGLISH SUBTITLES! The DVDs are still region 2, but that's a pretty minor obstacle once you have subtitles.
