Unless these offer something substantial over the Diamond Edition (Pinocchio didn't) I probably wont buy.

Based on the schedules I've seen, it will be The Lion King. If they follow the Bambi pattern, The Lion King 1 1/12 and 2 may also be re-released as DMC exclusives.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

If The Lion King gets re-released I'll have to be sure to get it. I missed the first Blu-ray release. I'm sure I've seen Bambi but only have vague memories of it. It wasn't one that I watched as a kid over and over like some Disney titles.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

It would be great if The Lion King included all the old DVD features actually on the BD this time.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

So what's the deal with The Return of Jafar / Aladdin and the King of Thieves? It looks like for now it's a DMC exclusive, but has there been any info if it's going to be available in stores? If I don't hear anything soon, it looks like I'm going to have to grab a copy off eBay.

It's been a DMC exclusive for over a year. There doesn't appear to be any movement to make it a general release.

I happen to have an extra new copy for sale. I can knock a few bucks off of it, if you want to do a private transaction, and we can avoid eBay and PayPal fees. PM me.

The DuckTales movie made it to release eventually. I imagine the same will happen for the Aladdin sequels.

Unless you can't access the DVD's, don't do it. Jafar is now cropped like KoT and the quality isn't much better than upscale. I'm glad I held on to my DVD double feature set.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Just FYI, I looked over the new Bambi Signature release. For those concerned about when legacy special features are dropped (compared to previous releases), there's nothing substantial missing compared to the Platinum/Diamond. The biggest things missing are a video introduction from Diane Disney Miller and the Second Screen app functionality.

Also, the Lion King is rumored to be the next Signature Collection release in the fall.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Doesn't really seem like any reason to upgrade over the previous version (which I have in 3d).

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

The 3D was the only version that had the digital copy before, and all versions of TLK have been OOP since 2013. So there may be a bit of interest, especially for people who didn't have a chance to get it before.

Edit: Oh, actually, I'm hoping they put a bunch of the legacy DVD special features back on the disc, which were missing from the last Blu-ray version. I'll definitely be checking the reviews for that.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

I'm just tired of buying these again and again for marginal new content. I bought them all on DVD. Then on BD. Then on BD 3D. No more. I prefer some legacy releases that don't already have a jazzed out SE.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

I'll get The Lion King since I missed the first Blu-ray release. I think my DVD may have gone bad as the last time I tried watching it with my parents the player we used wouldn't play it.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

I haven't re-bought anything for a second time on BD, and don't have any plans to. I have no "Signature Collection" titles, and I don't see any reason to.

Still waiting for The Black Cauldron, Make Mine Music, Melody Time, and Saludos Amigos/The Three Caballeros

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Woo hoo. My blu of this drowned a couple years ago so I was hoping Disney would either open the vault or release a new version.

The cover artwork is generic.

Any chance this will be the original version of the Lion King? Not the version that was spruced up for IMAX?

Same, I haven't bothered rebuying any of the Animated Classics on Blu-ray. The initial releases i've picked up have been good enough for me.

Nice for those that don't own it yet.

With GotG being the first 4K title, perhaps we can hope that the classics will start being released in 4K too?

I didn't get a digital copy with my 3D, but I bought that big barrel set. Maybe that's why. Dammit. But, this is one of fav all time, so who knows...

Wonder if 4K BD = 350 points for DMR?
