    The subject says it all... this was a big budget, high profile, major effort by disney in 84'-85' and was surprised to see that Anchor Bay has the rights to release the disc...

    Anyone have insight...

    Disney, for whatever reason, seems willing to dump off properties to Anchor Bay that they're not otherwise interested in (such as Midnight Madness and Watcher in the Woods, in addition to the above). They don't seem to give AB much support in terms of provision of elements (they weren't given the necessary elements to create a widescreen transfer of Midnight Madness, for example), but at least they're licensing the titles and making them available to consumers.
