Can someone answer this question about NSNA?

I don't know what they could do to actually include it in the series: it'd be a bit strange to include it in a DVD set given that it's so noticably different. Maybe it could be included on the jamesbond.com mission summaries. So they could officially acknowledge it, even if they don't include it...
I've always had a soft spot for NSNA. When I was young - we're talking about 15 years ago here -, it was repeatedly shown on TV here in Australia. Several times a year, it seemed. Me being so young, and the movie being oh-so-long, I always had to go to bed before it finished - and I still remember how excited I was to eventually got to see the end!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that MGM bought the distribution rights for Never Say Never Again from Warner Bros. and it had nothing to do with the Sony/McClory court case. I know MGM had the rights to NSNA before the case went to court.

Waner Bros did indeed have the rights to "NSNA" before MGM.
Turn, I thought you might like to know that "Casino Royale" is available on DVD from (amongst other places) HMV at http://www.hmv.co.uk this in turns means that is will be in the PAL/Region 2 format, which if one does have a multi region player won't be a problem.

I had a look at the reviews of NSNA at amazon.com after I posted this. They were all fairly scathing... perhaps not unreasonably.

I don't think those titles will ever be considered canon. I think that's why NSNA didn't get any attention as far as special features on the DVD. And I remember hearing Casino Royale would be released on DVD last year, but there is still no word on it. NSNA still makes the round on television a lot, but I have a feeling these titles will be the red-headed stepchildren for awhile.

Sony tried to make their own Bond films that's why there was a case.
I was rather dissapointed with the nsna dvd as it did not contain any special features and it still had that very annoying Bond score and also deleted scenes were not added on.I was told that there was some talk of doing a special edition of Casino Royale but that also still has not yet released.
