    For those in the know.....Did not wish to divert the other Disney thread up here...so thus this...it was mentioned that the "classic" animation has almost all been released on blu....how about the compilations?? 1. Do they have a chance of being released 2. and the big one...might they have all of their parts put back in? The DVD transfers to need a bit of a hug. Very nice animation in these....!!

    I made a guess last year that we would have two (final) waves of Disney animation in 2014:

    Tarzan
    Hercules
    The Black Cauldron

    Make Mine Music / Melody Time
    Adventures Of Icabod and Mr. Toad / Fun and Fancy Free
    Three Caballeros / Saludos Amigos

    We'll see....

    I'd buy 'em all. Fantasia is one of my favorite films of all time, and all six are like sequels (in a way). ;)

    Well a bump for an old topic, but it looks like Disney may be emptying the bucket to get out most of their unreleased animated titles

    From Disney.Wikia.com/wiki/The_Disney_Wiki (via Bluray.com)

    August 11 - Saludos Amigos/The Three Caballeros: 2-Movie Collection
    August 11 - Make Mine Music/Melody Time: 2-Movie Collection
    August 11 - A Goofy Movie/An Extremely Goofy Movie: 2-Movie Collection
    September 8 - The Black Cauldron: 30th Anniversary Edition

    Along with the previous announcements this doesn't leave much of the classic library in SD only and I think this completes the
    "Walt Disney Animation Studio" branded items

    June 16 Spirited Away
    June 16 The Cat Returns
    October 13 Aladdin Diamond Edition

    (EDIT: this site is not the one I was remembering so the reliability may be a bit iffy)

    Even better, the Wki entries specifically state that Saludos Amigos and Make Mine Music are no longer censored.

    With 101 Dalmatians 2 coming to wide release in early June, this doesn't shock me. Disney has been "dumping" waves of titles on the same day for a few years now in an effort to clear out the vault. It's HIGH time Black Cauldron gets a new release, though I'm not expecting a lot from the disc.


    The only thing that hasn't been released yet are the Aladdin sequels. My assumption is they will hit a week or two after the Diamond Edition of Aladdin...

    I guess "I'll believe it when..." applies. Not truly a dealkiller for me either way.


    Based on past groupings, I'd assume you are right since those were reasonable popular (I know I have those on some combination
    of LD and ??VHS from back in the day) though there are still a few missing -- not that some
    don't deserve to stay missing.

    Hercules: Zero to Hero
    Belle's Magical World
    Buzz Lightyear
    Tarzan and Jane
    Tarzan II
    Leroy and Stitch
    Stitch: The Movie
    Several of the Winnie the Pooh variants


    Of course the Live/Animation mixtures
    Victory Through Air Power
    Song of the South
    So Dear to My Heart

    Good catch...I didn't even think about those (obviously). I can't see a wave or two with these films by themselves (they're not popular enough). I can see some being added to September 8 and then the others trickling out a little at a time.

    Would love to see deleted footage from Black Cauldron (if any of it exists). I wonder if there will be any extras on this release? I have the old DVD of the film which wasn't too bad.

    I would definitely buy the BluRay/DVD combo of Saludos Amigos/The Three Caballeros: 2-Movie Collection and Make Mine Music/Melody Time: 2-Movie Collection if they are actually uncensored.

    I'm gonna temper my initial hopes -- this is a different site than I was remembering. From looking at some past
    issues this site may not be quite as reliable as the other so take this as rumor for now

    Last year's August releases were announced May 14th, which was a Tuesday exactly the same time distance away as we are from today and these potential August releases. I doubt that's a coincedence. I bet we get a formal announcement soon.

    Same. They delivered some real bogus info last year. Could be true, but might not.

    In reference to The Parent Trap. Just got off the phone with DMC Customer Service. They did some checking but no news yet. I also sent them a email requesting this title be brought to Blu-ray (both 1961 and 1998 editions).


    Fingers crossed.

    Never hock a Disney DVD before you see a review of the Blu-ray.
