It's sort of the chicken and the egg syndrome but Disney doesn't really care about selling Blu-ray players. The longer they wait to release these movies, the more players that are already in homes and the more copies they sell.

Sweet mother of Abraham Lincoln!

I never tire of hearing this news!  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I suppose that's true but sometimes it amazes me that they can't see the big picture.

Anyway...

A quote from the wonderful Toy Story 2, of course.  Did you know that it was put in as a reference to the fact that Tom Hanks is actually a relative of Lincoln's mother, Nancy Hanks?

I really want these discs, but I'm trying to resist buying them, since I'm sure that they're just a stop-gap release to tie in to the theatrical release of the new film.  A revamped Blu version of The Ultimate Toy Box with all three films and all the supplements will surely come out for Christmas.

Never say never but I'd be pretty surprised if the inevitable set was anything more than these discs and the TS3 disc in a box.

Glad to see we got some new bonus features but I really really enjoy those Cine-explore PiP tracks on the other Disney releases like Sleeping Beauty and Pinnochio and Cars. Wish there was one on each of the Toy Story films.

I sold my Ultimate Toy Box copy once these were announced. While we have received a lot of enjoyment from watching the UTB, I cannot see any reason to keep it on the shelf anymore.

I'm gonna wait for the Inevitable Toy Box for BD. We all know it's gonna happen.

There would be no reason for all the original features not to be carried over to the BD versions. 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

The only thing from the previous releases that I don't expect to see is the sounds effect-only soundtrack option (which wasn't on the DVD re-release from a few years ago either).

I could see them dropping the short films, since they have the Vol. 1 Pixars Shorts BD already out.

"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

 I imagine there might be 3-D versions down the line of all 3 at some point.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then.

I know I've made a habit out of posting this link in other Toy Story-related threads (so please forgive me if you've seen it elsewhere)...but HERE is just one of the reasons these films mean so much to me. 

Just in case there's someone out there who might be interested in the story...

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
