    What happens when something goes into the vault?

    can you really not find it in stores or is it just a marketing plow?

    They go into the vault, meaning they are no longer available for sale. Sometimes they come back out in a few years. I've been wanting Peter Pan for quite some time...I am thrilled it's back out right now!

    If you get into Hollywood, always check at Amoeba Records on Sunset - - they get used DVD copies in from time to time (but they are pricey for those OOP titles - - maybe $35.-50.).

    You can get them on ebay. Just make sure it's a region1 disc, unless you have a different dvd player, and be patient. Beauty and the Beast is on the list to come out in Blu-Ray but I don't know when.

    Disney imposes a moratorium on the sale of the feature-animation video releases that is equivalent to the theatrical re-release schedule the company used to employ.

    Disney's animated films were unique in the motion-picture industry because they were re-released to theatres every seven years.

    We have the first edition DVD's that were released for Pan, Mermaid, Jungle Book, etc.

    But we do typically upgrade them when the 2-disc versions come out and we give the older ones to my mom or Kristi's mom so the kids have something to watch when they are there.

    Re: What happens when something goes into the vault?

    I think the films usually stay in the vault for 7 to 10 years before re-release. Obviously there are special exceptions. Generally you can find them online at any of the sites people listed already, or someplace like amazon.com. But, usually they are more expensive that way than there are in stores during their release.

    As for me? Right now I'm waiting for Snow White. I can't believe I missed that one!

    Oh, and I'm not sure, but I think Disney might have the unsold DVDs shipped back to them?

    Re: What happens when something goes into the vault?

    Disney has this system pretty well figured out. With the content they are selling they have a unique opportunity to release the films for short durations and then pull them just as quickly as they showed up. It might not make sense to do that with just any movie, but with Disney animation they can, especially the classics.

    Since they began selling the animated features on VHS to the public in the 80s they have come in waves. Snow White was the last to be released on vhs (If I'm not mistaken it was because it was the most treasured of the films and Roy didn't want it to be in the publics hands) and has since come out only once on DVD (that I remember). Disney creates a huge demand for these DVD's because they are only available for a short amount of time and then if you want them you either have to wait or spend way more buying off e-bay or some tiny local shop that has one or two copies left.

    It seems to be generational. You'll see Snow White out on Blu-Ray (or whatever format wins out) when the next generation is ready to buy it. That seems to be the idea anyway. It's worked for the last 25 years or so pretty well. Does make it difficult when I want Snow White and Sleeping Beauty on dvd and can't go to the store and buy them. So, it could be a good or bad thing that they go "back into the vault" once their limited release time is up.

    Jungle Book in October is great news!!

    Anyone heard anything about Pinocchios next release?

    I just checked Amazon and the cheapest "like new" Pinocchio was $26 plus shipping. Cheapest new was $37.90 plus shipping, and finally, one reseller named "ValleyCD" was selling a USED-VERY GOOD condition Pinocchio DVD for $166.14! It must come with Jiminy Cricket inside!
