About to ask that myself! As much as I'd love the special features, I have to prioritize getting it on Movies Anywhere.

Hopefully someone who picks it up can confirm before the sale is over.
I can confirm that the "w/ Bonus Features (Digital HD Film)" version that the OP posted and that I just bought showed up in my Movies Anywhere account.

Ha well first off, my mistake, it was probably more than a couple of years ago that I bought it on Blu-Ray bc there was definitely no 30th anniversary edition and the edition I bought had been out of print for years and they were going for $40-60 on ebay! I was lucky to grab one for $23, but now I guess that was a waste seeing as how this latest release is cheap everywhere. Ah well, ya win some ya loose some.
Yes, that was the one. Months before the release of 30th anniversary edition, I did unload a brand new copy for $55 on eBay. But there were few other sellers at the time with the same idea I had and undercutting lowered the price drastically. I still had two copies I couldn't sell before the re-releases. Now it's worthless because the 30th anniversary has digital copy. As a eBay flipper I really hate it when studios do re-releases.

Don't know why anybody wouldn't buy the version with special features. Good deal
I used to think this also but then started downloading movies for kids to watch offline when we take car trips.
Movies with bonus features take up space that could be sued for more movies.
Not something I thought about pre-kids.

I enjoyed this movie. Capcom made a Zelda like NES game for it in the 80s.

OMG I was just going to mention this ! I assumed that no one else would mention this. The Willow game for NES is a hidden gem . I just started replaying it a week ago or so. It is an excellent game for its time which keep in mind was very early in the NES cycle. The game received great reviews but was overlooked by buyers simply because it was based on a movie! So after all of the horrible video games based on movies that were rushed out the door to capitalize on the movie's theatrical run — people rightfully stayed away from games based on movies. I hope this game gets an update and revival as well . Keep in mind that the size of Willow NES game was measured in just thousands of bytes — not billions of bytes — like modern games and still the gameplay is amazing when you keep that limitation in mind.

Wonder why they never play this on TV
They used to a long time ago, that's where I saw it first.

Yeah, that's why I avoid purchasing "collectible" movies at anything over retail. Certain editions like Criterion or Scream Factory will always hold value, but regular releases will have their value tanked overnight by a new release. I once sold a full-frame, VHS-quality DVD of an old B movie called Split Second for about $90 on ebay. It was out of print and sought after, the guy who bought it was super excited. Six months later, a widescreen remastered disc was released. I felt kind of sorry for the guy.

Based on the Movies Anywhere page it is the same price at all the main retailers.

After playing the Willow Arcade game,
I was super disappointed with the NES version of this game.
In fact, every NES game was rather lame compared to its Arcade version.

I do have the Arcade version on a modified SNES classic.
