Sorry for reviving this very old thread, but after spying the web for some info, you guys here seems to be by far the best informed. While devastated to learn in this thread that the Disney Treasures series have been discontinued, I still wonder; Does anyone know if there are any plans to release all of the region 1 Disney Treasures in Europe? There are still numerous Disney Treasure titles that are only available in Region 1, which is somewhat usewhat useless for me living on the other side of the pond. Among the ones available only in region 1 are famous animations such as Chronological Donald vol 4 (only the first three are available on the European market, and in addition without some of the wartime cartoons such as "The Furhers face" - le gasp, think if my poor, European soul should be subject of anti nazi propaganda!
), Silly Symphonies vol. 2 (only the first one is released in region 2 so far), Disney Rarities, On The Front Lines, the list goes on. That's a lot of fantastic animation!! I've been post-poning buying the region 1 DVDs for several years, partly because I don't have a region-free DVD player, but also because imported DVDs are very expensive, not to mention that the European version often includes the option for subtitles or dubs, which would allow my daughter to enjoy the animations as well. But if the series has truly been discontinued, I'm now fearing the region 2 releases will never come.
Any info on the matter would be deeply appreciated!
