I welcome Fantasia on Blu-ray. I'm sure it will look spectacular. I'm hopeful the bit of visual censoring from the VHS / DVD edition will not be carried over on the  Blu-ray, trivial though it was.

 

Aren't the supplements reversed?

Doesn't Destino and Dali and Disney: A Date With Destino  belong to the Fantasia time period?

Isn't Musicana closer to the Fantasia 2000 time period?

I have no interest in Fantasia 2000, but I will buy it for Destino.

Destino is finally being released but only on Blu-ray? Are you kidding me?

 

I know I'm the minority that does not have Blu-ray in my home, but having Destino as an exclusive to one format is just sad. Even if I had BR, i would still feel that it was unfair.

 

Destino should be available to as many people possible. It is a landmark in animation history, Disney history, and the Dali legacy.

 

I hope Disney reads this forum and does the right thing, by giving Destino and the documentary it's own release on both formats.

Agreed, although you have things a little backwards in that BR owners are not even close to being the majority.  Still, it doesn't change the fact that it's a lame decision.  I suppose I can be thankful for their shortsightedness and be content with my original box set.  Just doesn't seem to be any reason to double dip.

Destino is with Fantasia 2000 since they were both shepard by Roy Disney Jr. full filling his Uncle Walt's vision.  I think Musicana belongs with Fantasia since this was Walt's vision of Fantasia 2000 and closer to Fantasia than Fantasia 2000.  But this is just my opinion.

Not speak for GaryEA but I think he meant the majority of people here at HTF.

 

That being said, I own a Blu-ray player and plan to buy Fantasia on Blu-ray but I also think it's lame to exclude content from the DVD.

Gary,

 

You are not alone. I don't have Blu-Ray either, and I hate how most companies are doing this now but at least Disney does offer Blu-Ray combo packs. This way you can enjoy the DVD and when you do decide to upgrade you already have the Blu-Ray copy. Usually near the release dates Disney offers a 10 coupon for these combo packs and it comes off pretty cheap. I got the Snow White Combo pack for 10 bucks, Up Combo Pack for 10 bucks, and Alice in Wonderland Combo Pack for 15. Granted I don't think it's fair that Destino is being excluded but you can try to make the best out of it.

Most Wanted on DVD: Dragonwyck (1946),  Little Nellie Kelly (1940), Bachelor Mother (1939), Tin Pan Alley (1940), Mother Wore Tights (1947), The Devil and Miss Jones (1941),  Penelope (1966)Fox Please release Betty Grable Vol. 2!

My Blu-ray double pack of "Fantasia" and "Fantasia 2000" does contain both the "Destino" short - and the "Destino" doc on it! United Kingdom here, by the way! Alistair

TravisR,


Much obliged for clarifying my point. When I said majority, I was referring to the members of this board. My apologies for any confusion.


KellyVO,


Thank you for your input!. I will definitely buy the combo pack because I'll upgrade to BR at some point in the future. Plus, I don't want to miss out on Destino before it goes back into the "vault"!


And thanks for the tip on the coupons. I will be looking out for them!

Gary,


Here is a link for a 10 Dollars off coupon. It's through the Disney Movie Rewards Program. So you kinda need to join to get the coupon (it's free to join, and it's 10 dollars off) and this coupon requires you to enter a UPC from a VHS, DVD, laserdisc of Fantasia or Fantasia 2000. Here is the link:

Hope that helps!

Thank you Kelly! The discount will take the sting out of what was going to be a very melancholy purchase. :)

No problem! I'm all about saving money! I'm glad Disney offers these coupons for their Blu-Ray combo packs. I just used the coupon for Toy Story 3 last week and the Beauty and the Beast coupon last month!
