    That "In Walt's Words: Enhanced Edition" feature sounds interesting. But I'm probably good with my Diamond Edition of this particular title. Decent artwork though.

    I don't have access to it right now, but the press e-mail I got mentioned a 4K UHD version as well.

    Unless I misunderstood it, which is possible.

    Would assume Ron got the same email!

    I think you are mistaken.

    The Cinderella LIVE ACTION is coming out 4k but not the Signature release. I usually trash the press releases I receive immediately after posting but I am pretty sure 4k was not an option.

    You're probably right! I know the email mentioned a 4K option but maybe it was the live action and I didn't read it closely enough!

    And if I am wrong and you find a press release that states otherwise, do let me know and I will update.

    Thanks!

    From everything I've read so far, it is the live action version coming in 4k.

    I think I'll be sticking with my existing copy of Cinderella barring a 4k release. There's plenty of other titles coming in the next six months to keep me occupied.

    The apparent lack of a 4K version for the animated film calls into question Disney's strategy.

    It could be that they are only interested in releasing the more modern titles (The Lion King, The Little Mermaid) on 4K. We'll have to see whether there is a 4K option the next time there is a Signature Collection title from Walt's time.

    It is worth noting that Disney did NOT release the original Mary Poppins on 4K when the sequel came out, even though Mary Poppins Returns did come to 4K. So the lack of it would seem to add credence to this theory.

    While they haven't made anything official yet, I suspect that the Signature release this coming fall will be Aladdin, to tie in with the release of the remake on Blu-ray. That will almost definitely get a 4K release, so the next time we have a test for this would be in 2020 when they get around to some combination of Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, The Jungle Book or (maybe) Fantasia.
