No, I don't think we'll have Aladdin by 2 months ago

We know that at the latest Aladdin will be coming out in Autumn 2004. This announcement makes it possible that it'll come out half a year or so earlier (in Spring 2004, which I assume is what you meant), but no one knows for sure yet.

Aladdin will probably be late 2004, arent they re-releasing it in IMAX in Janurary??

I hope Aladdin & The Little Mermaid are for next year, those are the only two I want out of the new list anyways.

Digital Bits has this to say about the Disney's Platinum schedule.


How do you like this? A rare Saturday post! And it's good news for you Disney fans. In an online conference call with share holders regarding Q2 FY03 financial results, the studio revealed that it plans to accelerate its Platinum Edition DVD release plans. Part of the reason for this is that the company expects HD-DVD to be available by 2007, and they want to get all their catalog animated titles out on standard DVD by then (presumably so they can then do it all over again in HD). By accelerating these plans, we mean that the studio now intends to release their Platinum catalog at a rate of two films a year, one in March and one on October. Also, they now plan to leave them available for two years at a time, and then take them off the market for only five years (as opposed to the ten-year moratorium they'd previously announced). And they've added several more titles to their eventual 2-disc Platinum line-up, including Sleeping Beauty, Pinocchio, Fantasia and Peter Pan.

The specific release schedule is TBA, but here is the new list of Platinum titles on the way:

Snow White (released 2001)
Beauty and the Beast (released 2002)
The Lion King (coming 10/7)


The Little Mermaid
Lady and the Tramp
101 Dalmatians
The Jungle Book
Sleeping Beauty
Peter Pan

Stay tuned...
