Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Pinocchio has leaked as the next Signature Collection title from a couple online retailers. Here's the cover art:



It's supposed to go up for pre-order on DMC on Tuesday, so maybe we'll get some more details then.

Also, there is this site:
https://www.disneysignaturecollection.com/

where it lists some more upcoming titles in the Signature Collection (not in order):
Bambi
Fantasia
Lady & the Tramp
Lion King
Peter Pan

Too bad they still won't release the classic Mickey cartoons in HD.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Hey look! They are actually releasing a movie Walt was involved with in the Signature Collection line.

If they manage to fix the issue in the "I Have No Strings" scene (shirt changes from yellow to white, then back to yellow) I will repurchase. And hopefully this doesn't repeat the missing dialog issue that needed a disc replacement.

And hopefully this one will actually retain the special features from the prior editions.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Digitalbits announced that Disney is the lone holdout in releasing 4K, but that will change in 2017. I'll assume most, if not all the Marvel movies, possibly Star Wars, and probably a new banner for the classics.

"I’ve also learned – separately, I might add, from other industry sources – that the final remaining holdout studio, Disney, is quietly preparing to begin releasing titles on the format in 2017."

... and don't forget those Pixar features.

my fingers are crossed that Disney's 2012 4K restoration of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' on UHD is in the cards as well.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Damn, I forgot they restored that in 4K. I want that on UHD above everything else, including Star Wars. 20k Leagues Under the Sea is my absolute favorite live action movie. Watched it countless times growing up.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Also, some more details about Pinocchio:

Arrives for the first time on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on Jan. 10, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Jan. 31 with hours of new and classic bonus features.

The Walt Disney Signature Collection release includes hours of classic bonus material and exclusive features including a reinvented rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star” created and performed by music influencers from Disney’s Maker Studios; never-before-seen artwork from the film’s Pleasure Island sequence; archival recordings of Walt himself during “Pinocchio” production; and a recently restored and scored 1927 short featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
Bonus Features:
  • Walt’s Story Meetings: Pleasure Island – The Pleasure Island scene in “Pinocchio” had much more development than what is seen in the film. Join Pixar’s Pete Docter and Disney historian and author J.B. Kaufman as they explore artwork recently discovered in Disney’s animation research library revealing some of the attractions, gags and games, which Disney animators created for this iconic location of the film, that never made it on screen.
  • In Walt’s Words – “Pinocchio” – Hear Walt himself discuss the making of “Pinocchio” through archival recordings and interviews.
  • The Pinocchio Project: “When You Wish Upon a Star” – Music influencers Alex G, Tanner Patrick and JR Aquino from Disney’s Maker Studios, a global leader in short-form videos, gather in a creative workspace to create their rendition of the film’s signature song, “When You Wish Upon a Star,” and produce a fresh new music video.
  • Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in “Poor Papa” – This recently restored and scored 1927 short features Oswald the Lucky Rabbit who gets multiple visits from the stork and is forced to attempt various methods to help stop the onslaught of baby deliveries.
  • Women in Animation - A feature documentary highlighting the evolution of women’s roles in Disney animation
  • Classic Bonus Features – These offerings from prior home entertainment releases include hours of bonus material, such as the making of “Pinocchio,” deleted scenes, sing-alongs, storyboards and theatrical trailers.

Best Buy exclusive: Lenticular packaging
Target exclusive: 28-page Storybook

They are. I got mine from Amazon.co.uk. Doesn't excuse the fact that they're unavailable domestically for those who want that option. Especially since Disney seem to have gone back to fully supporting 3D again.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

I should see how my original DVD holds up on my bigger screen nowadays. I'm not upgrading many titles anymore, but Pinocchio would be worth it.

*SIGH*, I'm probably the only one wishing for Black Cauldron on blu. It's a shame that the cut scenes will probably never see the light of day on a decent format.

Kedrix...not the only one, as it would be wonderful if it came out in blu in 2017. I would pry open my wallet to pick it up the week it was released.

I see no circumstances under which Disney can release that film without huge backlash. It will never see the light of day again.

There's nothing wrong with SotS.

Both WB and Disney have already released historical titles way worse than song of the south.

Frankly, almost anything on Adult Swim is more offensive than song of the south.

I'm sure you have already read it but Leonard Maltin's essay on why the film is important is a good read and justifies its release.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

I own a VHS copy of SotS that I got in Japan a few decades ago. I pop it in every once in a while to watch it. Its an okay story but the animation is top notch.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

A BD release of SotS would indeed be a story, with a level of backlash directed at Disney for releasing it again. But so would (should) Dumbo, Peter Pan, etc. having watched SotS and those other titles within the last decade it seemed everything in SotS was nothing compared to the depictions of Native American in Peter Pan, the crows in Dumbo, etc... Seems that SotS has more a reputation now that is actually far worse than content in the movie. And of course being a huge Disney Parks fan, it's really odd how the the movie is off limits but Splash Mountain is a huge crowd favorite and the characters are out and about in the parks everyday so kids can meet them and pose in pictures with them.

Snow WHite will be 80 in 2017.

Does movie copyright expire after 90 years like with books?

That's a nice looking Steelbook from Best Buy. Was there one for the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Signature edition too?

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2017 Blu-ray releases

Song of the South is only coming out from Disney if it ever hits the public domain. Which it won't, Disney has single-handedly kept extending copyright law through its power in Congress.

The same thing is happening to The Dukes of Hazzard. Lots of rumors flying around that WB has permanently shelved the classic television show.
