Animated Inspiration: The Illusionist

To celebrate today's release of Sylvan Chomet's brilliant film "The Illusionist" on DVD and BluRay, here's the trailer to whet your appetite for traditional 2d hand drawn animation.

Since I'm not a fan of BluRay (due to it's increased cost and hardware requirements), I'm a little crestfallen that this film appears to only be available as an expensive 'combo pack' which contains both the BluRay and standard DVD copies of the film. However, this was the best animated feature film that I saw in 2010 and I know that it'll be worth the purchase (once I scrape the cash together and swallow my pride over buying a BluRay disk).
