    Not sure if this exists... but if not, here we go!

    Thought this thread could be for Disney fans and the release dates/speculations of DVD/Blu-Rays

    I've been a big disney DVD collector, and I'm very particular in making sure I buy ones ones with Slip Covers in my collection.

    This month I'm very excited that we're getting re-releases of

    -Pocahontas
    -The Aristocats
    -The Rescuers

    P and A i both needed in my collection period, and While i have the Gold editions of both rescuer films.. i'll be getting the 2 pack for the sleeve (and space saving).

    I think i'm going to go with the DVD+Blu Ray editions of all 3, that way they will 1) come with the sleeve and 2) still fit in with the rest of my DVD collection

    I was also told that there's a number you can call to see if Disney still has a sleeve in stock, that they will ship to you? I need to find out that number again.. because if i can get sleeves for them, i'd gladly buy Tarzan and The Sword in the Stone (both in which i'm also missing from my collection

    Hopefully Hercules, Mulan, and Emperors New Groove get new additions sooon too..

    I imagine Little Mermaid will be released at the end of next year to coincide with the 3D re-release of The Little Mermaid scheduled for September 13, 2013

    Wikipedia also says that Aladdin will be released on Blu-ray as a Diamond Edition in Spring 2013.

    I am a Disney blu-ray collector as well. Fantasia is so hard to find with a slipcover. :(

    well majority of my disney films arn't blu-ray.. but i love how disney makes not only a Blu-Ray + DVD pack, but a DVD+ Blu ray pack...

    that way i can buy the blu-ray and the case still fits in with my DVD collections. I love that aspect.

    and sorry about Fantasia... mines not on blu, but i do have the slip cover...


    also, does anyone know a good store on amazon to buy films that include slip covers? most unfortunately can't guarantee them... so i usually just pass

    I need to get 101 Dalmatians Platinum Edition.. That is one of my favorite Disney movies.
    (Hopefully it's not too expensive on eBay..)

    So far my collection includes..

    -Beauty and the Beast
    -Aladdin
    -The Lion King
    -The Many Adv. of Winnie the Pooh
    -Treasure Planet
    -The Emperor's New Groove
    -Monsters, Inc.
    -Finding Nemo
    -Ratatouille
    -Wall-E
    -Tron:Legacy
    -Bridge to Terabithia (Yeah, it's a little childish, but a really sweet, though heartbreaking movie)

    I have a lot more Disney stuff on VHS..

    I really wish they would release boxsets of the 1990 series, "The New Adv. of Winnie the Pooh" that is one of my favorite TV shows of all-time.

    Pooh merchandise sells like crazy, why hasn't it been on DVD yet? Even in a "best-of" form?

    Just preordered The Great Mouse Detective and the Rescuers two pack. Thinkfully this thread reminded me they were coming out soon.

    Now I'm waiting for Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Hercules, Lilo and Stitch and I think there was one more Disney film I wanted.

    yeah you got really lucky. Disney's pretty damn good at pulling there products.

    I got lucky and randomly one day my walmart a few months ago got a shipment of slip covered great mouse detectives in. I snagged it instantly... i haven't seen them with covers in a good while. Hoping I end up finding a Sword in the Stone or Tarzan the same way...

    i got the original Platinum edition of Aladdin (with slip) at a Meijer one day randomly several years after it was pulled back to the vault

    I still don't get why Disney are such ***** and put there movies into their so called "vault" so soon. Give the movies more time to sell. I'm having to constantly check Amazon for when their other movies go up for preorder just to insure that I get one.

    When I was a kid, it used to be that they used to re-release their classic animated films in theaters every few years. I got to see Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, 101 Dalmations, Alice in Wonderland, The Rescuers (which was a double feature with Mickey's Christmas Carol), Dumbo and Bambi in the theater. And I saw Mary Poppins twice.

    The VCR wound up ending that, and when they started releasing new movies in the 90s, I guess there was no need to re-release the older stuff anymore.

    But they were always a pain with their limited-time releases. I guess it makes sense from a marketing standpoint, but it can be annoying.

    Speaking of Mary Poppins...when is that getting a blu-ray? That's still my favorite Disney movie. My guess is 2014, which will be the 50th anniversary of the movie.

    Yeah, I have a bunch of them on videotape but I no longer own a VCR. They also need to release them with a little less expensive price, I always see them at $29.99 then I wait for them to be on sale and before you know it they're back to that damn vault.

    I understand they can't sell them all at once, but they should make more copies when they do decide to take them out of the vault. If they're not going to release that particular movie for another 10 years or however long it is, shouldn't they make more copies to maximize profits.=?

    I'm glad I caught a few Disney films in the theater when I was younger. Off the top of my head I've seen Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid and Lion King.

    I'm also looking forward to Mary Poppins, both Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke were great in that. I'll punch anyone in the face who tells me to turn in my "man card" for that one. :funny:

    Disney DVD's/Blu-rays RARELY ever go on sale... the only ones that do are the ones that really never go into the vault (Hercules, Tarzan, Hunchback, etc...)
