    A number of new titles have been announced by Buena Vista Home Video.

    Look for Miramax catalog titles making their DVD debuts on January 6th 2004 to include Ciao Professore!, Get Bruce!, MicroCosmos (finally!), Moondance, Revenge Of The Musketeers, Ridicule, Sonatine, and Talk Of Angels.

    Due on January 13th are The Innocent, The Lovers On The Bridge, Strawberry & Chocolate, and the great Isaac Mizrahi documentary Unzipped.

    On the animation front, January 27th brings new Disney "Masterpiece Editions" of Alice in Wonderland and Pocahontas.

    And finally, look for these "Disappearing Classics" to go into moratorium on December 30th: 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, Fantasia, Fantasia 2000, The Jungle Book 2, Lady And The Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, and the new Sleeping Beauty.

    Paul, don't hesitate to pick up the FANTASIA ANTHOLOGY set. Despite the tinkering (Deems Taylor's narration) and the censored bits, it stands as one of the absolute crown jewels of my collection. Lovingly put together and loaded with supplements, it's truly incredible. Go! Buy it now! [​IMG]

    Well it'll probably like the 'Walt Disney's Masterpiece Edition" VHS that were released for a period, Pinochhio and Fantasia were some of the first and eventually most all the animated classics were released under that banner (rather than the old Walt Disney Classics banner).

    at least packaging wise it may be like that. I suppose Disney pulled a FOX and decided that having unique, high-quality, and collectible name brand lines doesn't matter as much as changing the names of the brand lines every year. So we go from Gold Collection to Platinum Collection, to Special Edition, to Masterpiece Edition, or Vault Disney to Special Edition and so on and so forth. The only line lately that hasn't gone through a dozen name and packaging changes is the Disney Treasures releases.

    When the hell did these crappy animated sequels become classics?

    I can understand Fantasia, Fantasia 2000, and Sleeping Beauty bearing that moniker, but Patch's London Adventure? Give me a break!

    Great news, especially about MICROCOSMOS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

    Hopefully, my most-wanted Miramax title, SHALL WE DANCE? (1996-Japanese), might stand a chance at being released on R1 DVD sometime in 2004, too.
