The releases in region 1 seem to be relatively bare bones but atleast they are in anamorphic widescreen.

Wax on, wax off
When one thinks of "80's movies," one invariably cannot forget the Karate Kid saga. Starring Ralph Macchio and Yoda before he turned green, the first film was a huge hit and spawned three sequels (though the current Columbia DVD release is rather anemic, if you ask me.) Columbia has just announced a 6/13 arrival for the first two follow-ups, The Karate Kid Part II and The Karate Kid Part III. For the sequels, Columbia is presenting them both with anamorphic widescreen and fullscreen transfers, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese 2.0 surround and subtitle tracks, talent files and trailers, while Part II also includes the original making-of featurette. Retail is $24.95 each. (By the way, the Hilary Swank-starring The Next Karate Kid will be out later this summer, while still no word on any special edition - or at least a widescreen version - of the first Karate Kid being reissued any time soon.)

I am clarifying this at the moment. Columbia-Tristar in the UK have published a "coming soon" brochure that shows all 3 in widescreen with directors commentary...

The region2 disks seem, as you say, to be bare bones with anamorphic widescreen. I am still trying to find out whether the UK have got their facts wrong...
