    Sorry If this has been posted already...
    I picked up my copy of Snow white last night and flipped thru the Disney A-Z pamphlet that comes with it. On the back they state that Snow White is the First of the Platinum Line and Beauty and the Beast will be the second. The release date October 2002. Does Disney do a good job of releasing thier DVD on time?
    Thanks
    Andre

    Disney is not always good about releasing DVDs according to original plans, e.g., they have delayed releases originally announced like Oliver & Company, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, etc. They have not completely made good on their original late-1999 announcement to release all the animation catalog (sans Platinum titles) within 2 years.
    However, I would expect them to meet their stated intentions regarding the Platinum Collection. Releasing only one per year certainly gives them enough time to do the work, and I imagine it's very important to them to have this big release prior to each holiday season.
    I'm very impressed with what I see on Snow White. It just makes it all the more frustrating that we will have to wait so long for the rest of the Platinum releases like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, etc. Sure wish they could step it up to two per year, maybe a Spring and Fall release.

    I don't consider BATB to be the strongest Disney title but more than good enough for my collection. The title I am awaiting sadly is Lion King.

    Will Disney put DTS sound track for platinum series? I hope it badly, especially for Beauty and the Beast, and Little Mermaid. I saw a review that Little Mermaid SE was to crappy to buy. Will Disney re-release it??

    I believe Aladdin is slated for 2003.

    So the SE of Peter Pan next year will not be under the Platinum banner? I'm confused with Disney's multiple editions. [​IMG]

    I hope they don't change their packaging styles over the years. Although, by the time that 2010 rolls around people will be wondering, why the antiquated DVD??? When's the [insert High Definition Disc format here] release going to be. WHAT!!! YOu mean we have to wait another ten years for this one to come out on [HDD format]???? ARGH!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope they rearrange the Platinum schedule. They should release Bambi and Cinderella (never on DVD) before any reissues. The Little Mermaid isn't the greatest but at least it's already on DVD.

    With the wealth of extras on the Snow White DVD, I feel a little more confident that we'll see "Work In Progress" included in the BATB Platinum release. BATB just would not be complete without it.
