re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2023 Blu-ray and 4K releases

So, the big news is that Cinderella is confirmed to be coming to 4K on March 28, because a solicitation for it has appeared in the Disney Movie Club catalog:



This is the first pre-1989 Disney animated movie to be released on 4K. It's being released as part of the "Disney 100" year-long celebration, so hopefully that means additional animated classics will be coming to 4K throughout the rest of the year.

The Disney Movie Club exclusive version includes a DVD disc. It's likely that there will be a general retail release of it too, which would omit the DVD disc, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. The extras on it are identical to the previous Blu-ray release. It does come with a collectible lithograph (may be exclusive to the DMC version).

A couple pieces of news.

First of all, Strange World's 4K release is going to be retailer exclusive. It will only be available at Best Buy as a steelbook, or at Disney Movie Club in standard packaging.

Secondly, Disney is doing a series of 4K reissues (same discs/content as before) at Best Buy with new Disney 100 steelbooks. I listed the animated classics above. They're also doing Star Wars and Pixar:
Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi on 5/2/23
Cars, Toy Story, Coco on 6/6/23

You can see the Disney 100 preorder links and steelbook designs here:

Given Best Buy's new physical media pricing (unless you pay $199.99/year for a Totaltech membership), that is terrible news.

I think the "Disney 100" packaging is awful anyway.

They look like the tins for the old Disney Treasures releases.

What about the Disney 100 Blu-ray/DVD editions of "Beauty and the Beast", "Frozen", "The Little Mermaid" and "Moana"? They were from last year, right?

Thank you for letting me know about those. They are from this year. I've added them above.

This is a just a repackaged line of Blu-ray + DVD + Digital, with exclusive Disney 100 slipcovers over the most recent Blu-ray release of each title. These are also available on Disney Movie Club a few weeks prior to their general retail release.

There is a Walmart-exclusive version of each title that adds a collectible pin of the artwork, like so:

I was hoping for a retail reissue of Fantasia and not a book club promo.

Cinderella general retail release will be 8/1. It will be DMC exclusive before that.

They really should release the 4K scans of Sword in the Stone and Black Cauldron on disc.

Well, the Blu-ray of "The Black Cauldron" is/was currently exclusive from Disney Movie Club.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2023 Blu-ray and 4K releases


These were released this week as Disney Movie Club exclusives. Unfortunately, they don't contain new transfers.

Sword in the Stone is identical to the previously released Blu-ray. In fact, it's exactly the same Blu-ray package, with just a new slipcover.

Peter Pan is identical to the previously released Signature Collection Blu-ray, though it does have a new package (new artwork and the slipcover). It also includes a new pack-in bonus Blu-ray disc that includes one new 23-minute featurette: "In Walt's Words: Peter Pan". Chapter listing for the featurette (thanks, blu-ray.com forum):

1. Walt Was Peter Pan (2:27)
2. From Page to Stage to Screen (2:50)
3. Peter, Wendy, Hook & Tink (2:25)
4. Off to Never Land (2:11)
5. Putting Pencil to Paper (4:36)
6. Real to Reel (2:49)
7. The Second Star to the Right (1:27)
8. Ideas That Walked the Plank (1:10)
9. In Walt's Words (3:12)

Also, the 4K release of Cinderella apparently looks really good:
