Okay, what happened? Absent-minded Professor and Son of Flubber were supposed to come out in 2012. We're now half-way through 2013 and still no announcement. Were sales of Babes in Toyland so dismal that they scrapped the whole vintage live-action Disney Blu-ray project?
I wasn't aware there was any "movement"--
The Flubber Trilogy was floated as an example of their new trend to box unwanted sequels together, and yes, it would be nice to see what happened with that one.
I'm also one of those majority of sensible folk who thought that Babes in Toyland was simply A standalone holiday-sales title, and not a harbinger that Mary Poppins was around the corner. As noted, it was a pleasant surprise to see that it was taken from the film source, and not an updump of whatever DVD they had.
And this, keep in mind, is judging JUST the core studio 50's-70's Buena Vista titles, and not the 80's-90's Silver Screen Partners titles, which are just now coming out of limbo....And then, we're lucky if they're "famous" enough (like Rocketeer, Roger Rabbit, Sister Act or Dick Tracy) to not be sent to Echo Bridge.
