May 18th

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

It was pushed back from December 2003 to May 18, then later moved to May 4, but then quickly back to May 18. I would've liked them in April though, since that's a slow month for me, as opposed to May...

It's always been May 18 since they were pushed back. Amazon and a bunch of other places got it wrong somehow.

The Chronological Donald
(250,000 tins)


It was 1934 when the irascible Donald Duck came to life in a teeny bit of a part in "The Wise Little Hen" and proceeded to steal the show. From that point on nobody could hold him back, and the much loved cranky character went on to be the most prolific of Walt's "fabulous five." Now for the first time, you can enjoy the Donald in all of his solo starring shorts from "Donald And Pluto" in 1936 to "Chef Donald" in 1941. This volume also includes a loving tribute to the man who achieved immortality by inventing the voice of Donald Duck -- and performing as his alter ego for 50 years -- Clarence "Ducky" Nash.

In addition to these films, this extraordinary volume also includes the full-length feature "Victory Through Air Power." Released theatrically in 1943, this powerful propaganda film has never been reissued until now.

Walt's Tomorrowland
(105,000 tins)


Walt Disney was a true visionary, and his most far-reaching vision examined the future. During the 1950s, his investigation into space exploration and the wondrous opportunities and challenges of space travel not only came alive in several Disneyland TV shows, but helped create strong public support for The United States space program. Go back in time to the beginning of the future and enjoy four episodes and a theatrical short that delve into the mysteries of the universe and space travel -- "Man In Space," "Man And The Moon," "Mars And Beyond," "Eyes In Outer Space," and "Our Friend The Atom." You'll also get a rare look at Walt's last film, "EPCOT," in which he reveals his concepts and plans for the Disney World and EPCOT projects. Other not-to-be-missed features include a special interview with noted futurist and author Ray Bradbury. Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Maltin.

Bonus features:

- "The Optimistic Futurist"
- "Marty Sklar, Walt and Epcot"
- Publicity Gallery
- Behind the Scenes
- Story and Background Art Gallery

(6 films of about an hour each)

I will be getting both Mickey and Donald... Lots of specials on the Mickey one... Just the holiday specials and Runaway Brain make it worth it for me...

I remember back in the 90's when it cost the same amount just to buy Mickey and the Beanstalk as it does this entire set now...

Thanks for the info! I'll be eagerly grabbing that wartime tin, and Mickey as well for the hell of it, but not Donald--I can take only so much of watching a character get more and more frustrated.

They've all four been preordered since August 8th, I better get them in May!

Btw how are those production numbers any different from the ones leaked in early November? I guess the real reason these were delayed was not overbooking but because of Eisner/Roy pending clash. By interesting to see the adjusted cover art, and if the cardboard sleeves no longer have Roy's signature (though he's apparently still part of On the Front Lines).

I want all 4 but I don't think its going to happen...I'll probably end up with Donald and Mickey...and the On the Front Lines. I could just make these the only sets I buy in May and leave it at that...very much looking forward to them though.
