Still weird to me to see all those Fox films branded as Disney. But Iíll get stuff like Pretty Woman, Con Air, and Ford vs Ferrari if the prices are $4.99 or close to it.

I'm going to guess those May the 4th SW films will be $9.99 for the UHD.

That would be amazing, as Disney usually isnít super aggressive on their biggest properties. But that does remind me that I might as well hold off a little longer on Rise of Skywalker in case thereís a good sale on 5/4.

So these sales are for you to own digitally if you don’t have Disney+, since they are all free there, right? Well, freed with paid sub obviously...

Re: Disney's Flash Sale of Select Films on Digital HD/ 4K for April & May

Here's some updated info:

For a limited time, consumers in the U.S. can buy select offerings digitally for $4.99 to $9.99, a hefty discount. The studio is organizing the films into weekly, themed collections that will be available for a seven-day period.

Star Wars movies will be on the higher side, or $9.99 to purchase. They will be be on sale beginning April 28 and ending May 4, timed to the fanboy holiday Star Wars Day. Older movies in the franchise cost around $14.99 to purchase, while the most recent installment, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, can be bought for around $19.95.

The Disney titles that are part of the "Princess Collection" (May 19-25) will likewise cost around $9.99 to buy. They include the classic animated pics Aladdin, The Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Documentaries from Disneynature will cost $7.99 to purchase, on average. They will be on sale Tuesday through April 27, tied to Earth Day.

Otherwise, most of the movies featured during the promotion will start at $4.99. A number of the titles are from the 20th Century Fox library that Disney acquired following its acquiring 21st Century Fox, but aren't yet on Disney+, as are many of the other films that are part of the new on-demand promotion.

I got Pretty Woman last night. I know I don't have a BD of it and I can't even remember if I own a DVD. So $5 for an HD copy was worth it to me. The Movies Anywhere version actually has a lot of bonus material as well.

Where to buy? Do different vendors offer different resolutions or are the all the same? I was going to buy a movie at VUDU but it said " enjoy in 720P" so I backed off. Same film at Amazon showed HD which really isn't specific. Obviously I would like to get the best quality available (if there are differences).

They are Movies Anywhere titles, so wherever you buy it, you have access to it on any of their services (Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, VUDU, Google Play, Fandango Now). So it doesn't make a difference unless some service is selling a UHD version at the same price. Then you ideally want to pick it up from that service so you own the 4K rights. Not sure if that applies to any of these titles though.

Yup that's the one I bought and they transferred over A-OK to my other providers including MA with all these extras as well.

Action Movies week looks like a winner to me. I do not remember ever seeing any of the below titles for under $10.

Armageddon, Con Air, Gone in 60 Seconds, Pearl Harbor and Tombstone.

I was hoping to find the Mighty Ducks titles for $4.99 today. Unfortunately, they have them listed at $7.99 each.

$4.99 is really the sweet spot for me for catalog titles. Anything higher feels like theyíre not really trying. Iíve been meaning to get Con Air for forever, but Iím guessing thatíll be $7.99 too. The Touchstone stuff rarely drops that low, though, so I may bite anyway.

I was hoping Ford vs Ferrari would be $4.99, but $7.99 is still pretty good for a recent release so I got it on Vudu. I checked a couple other services, but they werenít offering UHD.

I agree. I don't like to pay more than $4.99 unless it's a new release. I did get Bend it like Beckham for $4.99 so I'll have a HD copy of it. I love that movie. It's not available on Blu-ray in the US. This sale has been a bit disappointing.
