    Attention fans of classic Disney...there is a respite from all the direct-to-video hype! Mickey is finally digging into his vaults and pulling out some genuine classics. On May 20th, Buena Vista Home Entertainment will release seven great ones, including a couple of first-ever DVD debuts. Titles that are a part of the lineup include The Love Bug and The Rescuers (both new to DVD), Gold Collection reissues of The Aristocats, The Rescuers Down Under, Hercules and Pete's Dragon, and The Rookie. Watch this space for more details...

    fantastic news indeed

    Will the Gold Collection "reissues" be the same discs or will they have new features?

    Pete's Dragon was shown in its premiere at 134 minutes, 6 minutes longer than the current DVD. Just thought someone should bring that up.

    Check this thread:

    "The Rescuers is the last unreleased Disney animated film..."

    There is a discussion regarding these releases and others.

    Edit: removed screwed up link.

    The Love Bug was supposed to be a Vault Disney title, but it looks like that line has been killed.

    I will pick up The Love Bug on DVD but only if Disney releases it in its OAR.

    I'd like No Deposit, No Return from 1976 on DVD. I saw that in the theater as a boy in Sydney.

    Quite happy with the lovely 16x9 5.1 Pete's Dragon DVD we have now...but the extra 6 minutes interest me.

    What I'm also wondering is if the re-release of Hercules will be 16x9 or just another rehash of the current 4x3 lbx version.

    VERY happy to hear about the Rescuers. I'd love to get the soundtrack and have all the songs...including the "come along" song that is sung while the albatross is flying to the marsh. I get such a well of emotion and the fidelity on the laserdisc is limited to compressed mono but the audio quality of the other music from the film on the Disney-collection CDs is wonderful...so the music must have some great sound on the studio recordings.

    We got a CD soundtrack for Pete's Dragon so there's luck!

    I'm pretty sure the already-released titles are the same discs all over again. Basically because Disney's information doesn't say either way, and also because the existing listings refer to these as "Gold Collection" - same as before - and not "Special Edition" or anything else new. The cover art is the same and everything.

    Sorry...I would have liked what you guys are asking for as well. I guess they are holding out on us for now. [​IMG]

    But if they're the same, what's the point of these reissues? None are OOP, I believe. And did they already release the cover art? In any case, The Rescuers must surely be a SE.

    Hopefully, it will at least have the same specs as its Region 4 counterpart....

    Water birds - A Walt Disney True Life Adventure
    Cartoon Short - Three Blind Mousketeers
    Sing-Along Song - "Someone's Waiting For You"
    Toon Disney - Under The Hat Villians

    I'd like a commentary and deleted scenes if there are any.

    My first post in this forum [​IMG]

    Finally! I've waited SO long for The Rescuers. Now all I need is Bambi and Song of the South and I'll have the three Disney movies I treasured as a child [​IMG]

    Welcome Debbie.

    Rescuers is a welcome addition. And a Song of the South would be cool as well is it was unedited. With Disney that seems highly unlikely.
