A great announcement!
I believe there's a slight error in the article:
'Life of Brian' has been released in many past incarnations on disc, most notably a Criterion Collection laserdisc as well as a previous Collector's Edition from Sony on standard-def DVD.

Somehow I dont see Sony restoring it. If one of the main special features is an audio track. Again this is one people keep buying so Sony just keep re-packaging it.

I believe I do remember it now; checking Criterion's site, I see it was produced about the same time (judging by spine #) as their disc of Time Bandits, which I certainly remembered. Bizarre I'd forget... though in my defense I'm sure the current DVD is still vastly better-known and a better candidate for mentioning in the news item than the laserdisc.

Life of Brian is my fav Python movie. I will certainly pick this up when it's released.

I doubt it'll be importable. Meaning of Life was the first movie they did outside of Columbia Studios. Columbia produced And Now For Something Completely Different for them and made a ton of cash off of it at the time. They parted ways after Life of Brian, IIRC, due to the controversy.
Where's Holy Grail? I figured that one would be first, seeing as how it's more widely known. It was trotted out 4 times in SD.
I was worried I'd wait forever for this one, since I sold off my Criterion version a few months back.141
