Aladdin: Platinum vs. Special Edition Gift Set?

What' exactly is in the gift set? Any more dvd content or just a book and what appears to be drawings, etc...

Its the same content DVD wise.

It's just the Platinum Edition DVD, a story book, some animation drawings, I believe.

EDIT: from DVDfile.com
Aladdin Special Edition Collector's DVD Gift Set, which includes the Platinum Edition release plus all-new sketches by the original animators, a highly collectible film frame from the movie and the exclusive DVD Companion Book.

I'm a sucker for these

This one looks to be very similar to The Lion King gift set.

ditto, While I'd love to get the gift set, after 6 years of collecting, shelf space is at a premium these days.

...and god forbid if I should ever consider separating my dvd/case from their gift set packaging.

I'm just gonna go for the regular Platinum Release. $20+ isn't worth the book and some drawings imho.

I am just going to get the regular release. I got the Lion King gift set last year, and it just wasn't worth the extra money in my opinion.

Just give me the movie. I really don't care about most of Disney's bonus features.

I feel the exact same way. Just the movie please.
I would probably look at the cute drawings once and then never open them up again.

Korean releases will NOT have English DTS (I received an e-mail from koreandvds stating this)
