So Robin Hood and Oliver on August 6. My gut tells me there's going to be one more title in this group.
Not too sure, Jason. Disney just sent over two press releases. One of
them follows this post...

Kitten Oliver and His Adventure to Find a Home

Two catalogue titles on the same day just seems...wrong...based on their previous releases. Even the June wave has a total of three packages (6 movies).
The Sword in the Stone is the third one.
There is also this one
Why so many animated features this year? Geez, Disney, give us room to breathe.
They did the same thing last year, Ethan. I guess they finally realize it's time to open the vault doors and release everything. I wonder how long we have to wait for Hercules and Black Cauldron, though.
