    Disney classics get Blu-ray treatment with Platinum Collection

    Disney classics get
    Blu-ray treatment

    Platinum Collection titles include
    'Snow White,' 'Pinocchio'

    The Blu-ray Disc juggernaut continues as Disney said Thursday that it will release five more Platinum Collection animated classics on Blu-ray.

    The quintet includes "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937), the first of Disney's acclaimed hand-drawn animated features. Also in the pipeline are "Pinocchio" (1940), "Fantasia" (1940), "Beauty and the Beast" (1991) and "Fantasia 2000" (1999).

    Each will be available for a limited time in new multidisc sets featuring hours of bonus materials and rare behind-the-scenes footage.

    Disney is launching its Platinum Collection line on Blu-ray with "Sleeping Beauty," which will be released Oct. 7.

    Disney is launching its next-generation BD-Live network, which offers such Web-enabled features as chat rooms and video messaging, in the U.S. only with "Sleeping Beauty." The network will go live worldwide in fall 2009 with "Snow White."

    Of the five new Blu-ray releases, "Pinocchio" will be first out of the gate, coming in the spring. "Snow White" is next, followed in 2010 by "Fantasia" and "Fantasia 2000." In conjunction with these releases, Disney will issue "Destino," an unfinished animated feature film created by Walt Disney and famed surrealist painter Salvador Dali. Begun in 1946, the rare film was rediscovered in 2003 and completed by Walt Disney's nephew, Roy E. Disney.

    Bringing up the rear is "Beauty and the Beast," the only animated film ever nominated for a best picture Oscar. The film will be available as a Blu-ray Disc Platinum Collection release in fall 2010.

    Destino is a very very odd, short movie, I wonder why they're marketing it with the Blu-Ray....

    Agreed. They better pack that thing with 5 hours of extras, and even then it might not be worth it.

    The way I understand it is that it will be included with Fantasia.

    heheh

    hopefully by the holidays they will be around $200. And contrary to popular belief - they do have outputs for standard TVs :-) When I was "between" sets, I was watching BluRay's over an SVideo connection (yikes ) in standard def.

    That being said, Disney did an AMAZING job with Nightmare Before Cristmas, and all their CG films that are available on Blu so far look SPECTACULAR

    Just in case someone's actually interested: "Destino" means "destination" in Spanish.
