Did Lion King come with a slipcover?

Did the Platinum 2-disc edition of Lion King come with a cardboard slipcover? I've been looking for a used copy but I can't find any with one. Actually, is there somewhere that you can buy cardboard slipcovers? Like Batman Begins deluxe edition, or any others that no longer are sold in stores with a slipcover?

It did, but it was a totally useless one.

I hate when the slipcover is identical to the actual coverart.

Wasn't this one that opened like a book? That's the way all of the Disney Platinum slipcovers were until Lady and the Tramp.

I liked it when they used to "open up" as well. Too bad they changed it for Lady and the Tramp.

You can contact Disney and they will send you items such as slipcovers, although they have a limit of five items.

Yes they did (in Special Edition form,) although they are hard to find now... Lion King II was originally released as part of the Limited Issue line, during the early days of DVD.

Sorry about that...I can accept emails now.

I only have a few slipcovers for The Lion King and none for the sequels. Sorry. I'm in Canada so it may or may not have that small "version francais incluse" on the front cover (I will check)...in case that bothers you.

Christian

For everyone wondering about Disney slipcovers in general, I have found the number to call as you can receive up to 5 Disney slipcovers for free.

The number is 1-800-723-4763

Quick update...received by Lion King slipcovers today from Buena Vista Entertainment (4/15). Much quicker than I expected them to come
