Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

The best reasons to me to own this new Bambi is that the special features can now be seen on Vudu. Especially to see the Oscar winning Animated Short, The Old Mill in HD. And it is also the only way to get the thought lost Oswald the Lucky Rabbit short, Africa Before Dark, also can be seen on Vudu. It was lost until a full copy was recently found. And not on the Disney Treasures.

Same I can say for Pinocchio, including the thought lost Oswald short Poor Papa.

Wish they would have done this for Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

So, it turns out the release date of TLK is actually 8/29. This is interesting in that it looks like Disney might actually be moving to 4 Signature titles per year.

Parts 2 and 1 1/2 will also be issued in new BD+DVD+Digital HD combos packs on the same day.

Are any of the Lion King sequels good?

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Depends on what you call good

I believe 1 1/2 was basically Timon & Pumbaa watching the first movie and talking over it (mystery science theater style) with some new stuff thrown in. The second movie was better but not by much. Thankfully I only spent a couple bucks on each during one of Hastings sales. I think our kids only watched each one once and they didn't seem very entertained.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

This thread reminds me that it's been a while since I bought any of the classic BDs. I really don't need to rebuy Pinocchio and Bambi, but for the titles that came out before digital, I might look to use Amazon or Xbox credits to get the digital versions and let DMA port them over.

Lion King 2 was considered one of the better DTV sequels early in the digital era, but it's been years since I've seen it. Regardless, it didn't deserve its spot in this collection:

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

I already put my pre-order in but I'm kind of sad that it won't have a Lenticular to match all of the previous Disney Best Buy Exclusive releases.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

That's a nice looking Steelbook, have to try and order that. I liked The Lion King 2. Not as good as the original but a decent enough sequel by direct to video Disney standards. I haven't seen The Lion King 1 1/2 though.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

The two Lion King sequels were hard to sit through IMO. One viewing is more than enough for our family.

Yeah, that set was pretty early in the DVD era (I'm thinking 1999-ish), and The Lion King didn't come out till several years later for whatever reason. Including the DTV sequel in that set, though, seemed like a bait-and-switch for people who weren't paying attention.

Same release as before sans 3D disc. Probably less extras this time around.

Disney almost never remasters the A/V once a movie has been released on a format.

The Lion King won't get a true A/V remaster until Disney releases it on UHD.

So far, just Aladdin on Aug. 14. There's been no indication yet that the Aladdin sequels are getting vaulted, though they've only been available through DMC.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Disney and Amazon are having a pissing match again, so no preorders on Amazon for Disney titles.
