    According to the Digital Bits there will be four 2 disc special editions coming out next year they are Pocahontas: Special Edition, Alice in Wonderland: Special Edition, Mary Poppins: Special Edition and Lilo & Stitch: Special Edition and their Platinum title is expected to be Aladdin.

    I was just about to pick up the original Lilo & Stitch, but I guess I'll wait. The other releases should be great. Can't wait for Aladdin and Mary Poppins.

    This was more or less officially confirmed a couple of days ago over at UltimateDisney.com with a scan of the flyer in the new Sleeping Beauty SE.

    Alice for sure, Mary Poppins maybe...

    Lilo And Stitch...

    No. Sorry Disney, but you put out a decent single disc, and I see no reason to upgrade.

    The SE's of Mary Poppins and Alice In Wonderland will find a nice spot on my shelf.

    If Aladdin is being released...that would be a good time for Disney to release a restored version of The Thief and the Cobbler.

    I thought there was going to be more than one Platinum title a year from now on.

    I was thinking the same thing, Joel. I was looking forward to getting Aladdin (my favorite of the announced Platinum titles) earlier in the year, instead of having to wait for October.

    The bi-yearly Platinum releases apparently isn't going to start until 2005. Just Aladdin in the fall next year.

    Isn't Sleeping Beauty a Platinum title?

    Well, I'll be picking up ALICE and LILO. Hopefully ALICE will have all the LD extras. I'm glad I held off on a DVD upgrade.

    SLEEPING BEAUTY is not officially a Platinum title. Makes no difference under what moniker they release these titles - no one excels at the 2-disc special editions the way Disney does.

    Damn, Disney is putting out some good stuff. But I'll pass on Pocahontas.

    I can't wait...will be nice to finally get a proper release for my boy Stitch! (Though I am VERY alright with what is presently out, a full fledged two disc with the all the extra's that were originally prepared is going to be nice!)

    All I hafta say is it's about time with Lilo and Stitch. So where's the Treasure Planet SE? It's the last recent Disney flick without a 2 disc edition, or even the mention of a 2 disc edition.

    Below is a snippet from an DVDFile interview with Don Hahn, Gordon Ho and Andy Fiditsky:


    What was the reasoning behind the recent decision to speed up the Platinum title release schedule?

    GH: We made a statement that, yes, because of the positive reception to our Platinum line, that starting in 2005 we will be releasing two Platinum titles a year, so that by 2007 or around there we will have gone through our entire collection. And that made a lot of people happy.
