    Disney DVD - Platinum Editions

    Ok, so the Jungle Book is geting the Platinum treatment and comes out next week. What is next? I thought 101 Dalmations, then, it seems to me, to be Aristocats. DO you tihnk they're gonna keep doing it just twice a year? Do they realize how many they have? I understand the process to archive and restore, but we'll be in a new format by the time we get all the way through them...

    Re: Platinum editions

    Personally, JB is one of my favorites, great
    characters, great music! And it's the 1st
    movie I ever recall seeing in a movie theater.

    What I'm wondering about the Release is
    "Where are the BEST extras?"
    At Wal-Mart, they are going with their
    stupid "Buy the dvd, get a Jungle Song CD"
    They are usually pretty Lame kid songs.

    At The Disney Store, they are giving away
    four prints with a pre purchase and have a
    limited edition snowglobe for $4.99 with purchase
    of the video. The prints aren't that great,
    and the snowglobe is ok. I'm just not into
    snowglobes, UNLESS it is very detailed.

    Does anyone else know what is being offered
    at other store for the Jungle Book and/or
    pre purchase?

    101 Dalmations Platinum Edition DVD will still be released in March 2008 as scheduled. The Aristocats will be released sometime during that period as a 2 Disc Special Edition (It's supposed to be different from a Plantinum Edition but these days not really :P) I think theyre gonna continue releasing two Plantinum Editions a year (one in Mar and another in Oct) but that doesnt necessarily mean that they will be the only times Disney will release an animated feature to DVD.

    I suggest going to UltimateDisney.com. It is a great information site for Disney DVD releases.

    No, I think, though the ad I saw doesn't say so, that Aristocats is going to be Platinum. This happened to me once before. I didn't get Alladin for a long time because the ads kept saying "Special Edition". They tend to not be consistent. And I want them in platinum, not some in "Special" and some in "Platinum". So they need to hurry up.

    Re: Disney DVD - Platinum Editions

    Here's next year's releases and what kind of edition they will be in:

    101 Dalmations - Platinum Edition - Spring 2008 (March I think)
    The Aristocats - Special Edition - Spring 2008
    Sleeping Beauty - Platinum Edition - Fall 2008 (October)

    Starting in 2009 they might be releasing Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and Fantasia again. I'm still waiting for a Pinocchio Platinum Edition.

    Re: Disney DVD - Platinum Editions

    I thought I saw Pinocchio in there somewhere.

    Why are they re-releasing Snow White? I mean, I realize it's the 7-year thing, but they should finish releasing the others in that time. And I don't think Fantasia was ever on Platinum.

    Me too!
    I have the previous DVD bare bones release, but I also have the big mega box set Laser Disc edition that came with all kinds of bonus features and stuff, including a restored CD soundtrack.

    If you live in Canada, then Future Shop seems to be the best deal. They have a special edition that comes in one of those fancy steelbooks. Problem is, they're charging an extra $8 for it over the regular one. I might pick it up, simply cause I got a giftcard there and don't know what else to do with it. I just wonder if the steelbook one will still have all the booklets (and most importantly, the reward points)? But they're also advertising that if you buy it there, you save $7 off the price of Aladdin, Little Mermaid or Peter Pan when you buy it. I might just take advantage of that deal.

    And how!

    But more quickly, I think. And why do they release some on "Special" and others on "Platinum" when they are going to go on that anyway? I mean, you're adding the same stuff, doing the same research for making-of's and other documentaries, why not just release more during the year?

    Re: Disney DVD - Platinum Editions

    Oh, good, somehow I missed picking up Sleeping Beauty
    when it was released on dvd, recently. Darn those short
    release periods.

    I am looking forward to some of the new extras on the
    Jungle Book. Jim Hill did have some articles about Rocky
    the Rhino, always like to learn stuff like that.

    Re: Disney DVD - Platinum Editions

    Does anybody happen to know what the 2009 Platinums will be? I'm guessing one of them will probably be Pinocchio, but the other I'm not sure. Maybe a Fantasia Platinum?
