Title Best
Finding NemoR4

The Region 1 version of this disc was released a few months earlier. It is quite similar to this one, but there are a few differences my guess is that there wasn't quite enough space on the Region 4 disc, because the PAL version of the film takes up more room. Both versions are on two discs in an Amaray case (the R4 case is transparent, the R1 is a black Amaray). Both have an attractive holographic slip cover (the R4 version has a small cutout where the security blob may be inserted). Both have a brilliant transfer (there's a lot to be said for a direct digital transfer).

The Region 4 version is missing:

  • Full-screen version of the film on disc 2
  • advertising at the start of the disc
  • slim booklet (8 pages) showing the layout of the discs
  • trailers for:
    • The Incredibles
    • Home on the Range
    • Lion King 1
    • Santa Clause 2
    • Disney Special Edition DVDs (1:25) (2 disc versions)
      • Alice in Wonderland
      • Pocahontas
      • Lilo and Stitch
    • Spy Kids 3D: Game Over (2:03)

The Region 1 version is missing:

  • dts soundtrack on the film

Note that some of the extras appear on disc 1 of the Region 1 package, but are on disc 2 of the Region 4 package: the behind-the-scenes documentary Making Nemo, and the Design Gallery.

Early copies of the Region 4 edition will include a slip for a holiday competition, and a sticker book.

If you have to have a full-screen version of the film, then the Region 1 version is your only choice. If a full-screen version is not high on your list, then maybe the dts soundtrack will be the decider? It certainly is an impressive dts soundtrack. I like it so much that I'm giving the win (barely) to the Region 4.
