    The limited edition packaging is very nice. I wish Disney would make the effort to do the same in R1.

    Everytime Disney does something right (B&B Plat.), they does something else that just makes me hate 'em again(Ltd.Edit not in R1). [​IMG]

    Thanks,

    What hasn't been made clear is that the Limited Edition is the only way to get the full 2 disc contents of the R1 'Platinum Edition'.

    The 'standard' edition is just one disc and although I have not seen a full press release detailing the contents of the single disc, I would be *very* surprised if it contained the 3 versions of the film.

    Based on past Disney UK single disc cutdown releases ('Atlantis', 'Monsters, Inc.') it will simply contain a 4:3 version of the film and the set-top games.

    (Perhaps Disney will not bother with a 4:3 transfer if the aspect ratio is 1.66:1; I'm not sure on the ratio of the Beauty and the Beast widescreen transfer.)

    If it's going to be "16x9 enhanced" (which is the case in R1), it'll be windowboxed within the frame, and have basically the same black bars at the top and bottom as a 1.85 release, so it's not as if widescreen haters would benefit.

    They R2 disneys sets are nice until the final thing comes out with the certificate logos plastered all over the box and, most notably, the discs themselves.

    Oh I dont blame disney for the logos, its just an issue many forget when the oooh and ahhh over nicer R2 packaging.

    I dont buy films on R2, I break for the OCCASIONAL TV release, but thats it. I keep up with R2 developments though, can't well not as a moderator of this section of the HTF, and I do dislike the confusion I see in the marketing of a lot of R2 products.

    I wrote Disney UK about trying to get just the case
    for the blue "book" style Snow White CE case and
    the red "book" style Beauty and the Beast CE case.
    They said, not allowed.
    Any other idea for sources for just the cases??

    Thanks,

    Enrique

    Just received the R2 version today. Nice, but it doesn't look as nice in the picture. Up close, it looks kinda cheesy.
