I was thinking about this movie the other day, a great classic from Disney, hopefully sometime soon it will be out on DVD and in widescreen stereo ofcourse.
I have a Walt Disney Presents documentary on the making of this film on tape, 50mins long and made in 1954! I hope its on the eventual DVD release.

I'd pick up a DVD of this great film ASAP!

If Disney would include the Emmy award winning making-of special, trailers, ANAMOPRHIC 2.55:1 widescreen, 5.1 DD remix (with maybe a DTS 5.1 remix too?) *drool*

I'd also like a Richard Fleischer commentary, TV spots (if there were some), and anything else possible.

I have only seen the wretched P&S VHS, so this DVD would be a no-brainer for me.

I have the ld and it has the documentary, so I think when this comes to dvd, it will probably be included. It also has some other nice extras I'd expect to make it to the dvd.

Fully restored with a DTS 24/96 5.1 track or even DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 (as long as the original track was included). Come on Disney!

It would be sweet!

I think that petitioning Disney is like trying to knock down a concrete wall by blowing on it, but I'll chime in anyway.

I would buy a copy of this classic in a hearbeat. This is on the assumption that Disney does not deem any of its content non-PC and doesn't cut it.

The original audio should be stereo surround.

Early CinemaScope movies were recorded in 4.0 stereo surround, and most of the later ones were usually recorded in mono.

Since 20,000 Leagues... was filmed in Technicolor, you're talking about a great possibilty of excellent picture quality. www.widescreenmuseum.com has a picture of a section of a Technicolor print of the film...and the color is beautiful. Even the CRAPPY P&S VHS has nice color.

I'd like to have this too! It's an old favorite plus James Mason is one of my favorite actors - he makes a great Capt. Nemo!

------------------
He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
-- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain

Patrick:

No they weren't.

They were 4 track discrete magnetic, 3 front channels and a mono surround channel.

To recreate the original experience, the proper format would be Dolby 4.0.

This would be wonderful to have as a Special Edition.
Disney, are you listening?
