I got Sleeping Beauty today and there was a trailer for Pinocchio before the feature film. I am excited for another great Blu-Ray release..Sleeping Beauty is gorgeous!

Huh!? HOW? It's not out until 10/7. Anyway, you lucky bastard (bitch?) It's my favorite Disney animated film. And cannot wait to see it on Blu. How would you rate the PQ? The last SD was pretty damn great.

I think many of us already knew this was coming, but it's nice to see that it's official.

I wonder if there will be complaints about it not being widescreen.

Of course, but I wonder if there are those who will say they want it to fill their HDTVs.

I will be buying all of the Platinum Edition Blu-rays this time around... I made the mistake of not doing this with the DVDs, and am still missing Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and Lady & the Tramp.

This looks like a nice release. I haven't seen Pinocchio in at least a decade.

I havent seen it since at least last century.

Seriously though, as a kid, this was my favorite and I havent seen it since I was a kid back in the 80s when we had it on VHS.

Re: Pinocchio 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition - Spring 2009

on the scene captures - what's that on the side of the image?!? "wood" borders?

I was busy looking at the images, here's the explanation:

"A double wow i must give to the special art designed to fill the black bars on the right and left side of the screen, as this movie 's ratio is 4:3 - it adds so much and fits amazingly with the film (its a choice to view the art, you can play the film with the black bars as well if you wish) "

One of the posters on ultimate disney said it was 1978 when it was released then, and that has to be when I saw it. I never owned the vhs or the gold collection DVD. So it will be 31 years since I have seen it. Can't wait to watch this with my son.
