But doesn't Region-free = bootleg? It's even got the cover from the Greek bootleg, with the tipped over glass added. But I don't know nothing about no BLU-RAY. Maybe they don't do regions on those. Though I would bet they do.
I believe most blu rays are region free. I bought the Sherwood BDP-5004 a year ago and it's played everything I've thrown in it - even standard dvds no matter the region or encoding. The only drawback is it can be a bit noisy at times.
Here are the Special Features as listed in this Menu footage from YouTube: (about 0:19 sec)
Looks like they're including all of the good stuff from the original Warner DVD.

Should be released Wednesday 8th December 2010.
Edit: Australian online store Family Box Office are listing the disc as being coded for all regions (A, B & C) but PAL formatted so it 'may NOT be viewable in countries with the NTSC system. (US / Canada).'
And remember, this is a BLU RAY not a regular DVD.
