In the Cinderella package, Peter Pan was announced for Spring 2013, so I'm not surprised this is all the teaser we're going to get for awhile.

I like that cover art. Sigh. The older I get, it seems the more kids movies I buy.:rolleyes:

The Little Mermaid was listed in the brochure as coming in the fall of 2013.

If Peter Pan is a kid movie, put me done as a kid. Magical story-telling never gets old.

I like the artwork, too. It's light years above and beyond the hideously cluttered ones they've been doing.

Agreed. I think "kid's movies" is a pretty limiting definition for most films that bear it. It's an arbitrary, marketing-driven distinction that says nothing about a film's age-appropriateness.


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.

Perhaps I should have said...the older I get the more I buy movies from my childhood. Of course Disney almost always delivers for the kids and the adults in one package.

We get Peter Pan and Little Mermaid next year. That's two heavy hitters. 2012 was blessed because we got two more heavy hitters and they got half of their crummiest titles out of the way!

I'm hoping that next year we can get some of the package films from the 1940s out on Blu; tops on my list are Make Mine Music and Melody Time fully restored to their original theatrical exhibition (the former had The Martins and the Coys sequence removed from home video and the latter had some edits to the Pecos Bill segment). But then again, this is Disney we're talking about.

If we get those compilation films (and I hope we do because they are enjoyable), I'd almost be willing to bet the changes will still be present. They didn't restore Fantasia's infamous censored sequence (they did clean it up a little so it was less jarring than the DVD and laserdisc renditions), and I suspect they'll let these edits remain, too, as wrongheaded as they are.

I think they can put MMM, Melody Time and F&FF on one big boxed set. That'd be fine with me. Also, 3 Caballeros and Saludos Amigos would make a decent double-disc. They really do need to restore the "smoking" scenes to Pecos Bill and the Goofy segment from Saludos. Nowadays they get around those things by putting on that little PSA with Pinocchio coughing up a fit from the cigar; done deal.

That wold be nice. I would certainly welcome Make Mine Music, Melody Time and Fun and Fancy Free in HD, and I would add the feature-length version of The Reluctant Dragon from 1941, but I hope Disney will complete transferring the animated features up through The Jungle Book to Blu-ray first. I hope they'll get the animated shorts transferred in high-definition soon instead of continually repackaging them on DVD. I keep buying each upgrade.

They don't need to alter their movies. I think an anti-tobacco PSA should be sufficient, along with a reminder that Walt died of lung cancer.


Three Caballeros would make a stunning Blu-ray.

The fact that they'd already dropped about a minute from an already short feature (Saludos Amigos) due to a shot of Goofy smoking, is the sole reason I've absolutely never purchased that title on home video. I think times have moved on, and the film deserves to be seen in its entirety. The title song sequence from Three Caballeros is a manic masterpiece--worth the price of the entire movie alone. Oh yeah--that's something I want to see in high def!!
