    The entire list is over at Jim Hill Media but some highlights include:

    01/27/04 Pocahontas - Special Edition
    01/27/04 Alice in Wonderland - Special Edition
    01/27/04 Lilo & Stitch - Special Edition
    08/17/04 Mary Poppins - Special Edition

    Personally, I can't wait for ALICE and POPPINS. I just wish I hadn't just today bid on the ALICE LD box set over at eBay. Oh well.

    Excellent! I'm all over Alice in Wonderland: SE, Aladdin: PE, Walt Disney Treasures wave 3, Lilo & Stitch: SE, Mary Poppins: SE, as well as Finding Nemo and Pirates of the Caribbean if they turn out to be as good as they look to be. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Can I just go into my David Lambert Mode and dance around, uh, half-naked (since these are (P)G films)... [​IMG]

    I'm personally getting the following:

    11/04/03 Finding Nemo
    12/02/03 Walt Disney Treasures, Wave 3
    01/27/04 Pocahontas - Special Edition
    01/27/04 Alice in Wonderland - Special Edition
    01/27/04 Lilo & Stitch - Special Edition
    03/30/04 Brother Bear
    08/17/04 Mary Poppins - Special Edition
    10/05/04 Aladdin - Special Edition

    And 1/27 is just 10 days after my birthday!! [​IMG]

    I wonder when the details of that 3rd Wave of the Treasures will surface...

    Well, they pretty much already have. Apparently, we'll be getting another Mickey Color set, the delayed Wartime set, and a Donald set. There's a Space one in the works, but the last I heard, it wasn't going to be ready in time for this year's release.

    Well yeah I knew that, Brian, but I meant actual details. I'm hoping soon.

    Too bad Brother Bear isn't labeled as a "Special Edition". Is this another case of a single-disc release followed by a SE?

    So, am I missing something? Where is the accelerated Platinum release schedule? I thought we could expect a second one in 2004, but I only see Aladdin (and it's labeled SE instead of Platinum).

    Maybe it's just not final yet?

    After all the talk about Disney no doing any more 2 disk SEs of their animated movies I won't be holding my breath. I guess I can hold out until Jan 04 to buy Lilo & Stitch to find out if the SE is really going to come out. Good information to know. Thanks.

    not to rain on anyone's parade, but
    even if that data is accurate today, how
    do we know for sure?

    Even Ron's "VERY SOLID" BV release schedule
    got completely obliterated.....

    Very nice list.

    I hope Disney can add The Thief and the Cobbler: Director's Cut in the near future. They're supposed to be reconstructing, restoring, and finishing the film.

    Mark, Disney said during a shareholder's conference call recently that they were revamping their animated DVD schedule (the main gist was that there would be 2 Platinum releases per year), so Ron's probably was legitimate before they decided to change things around.

    The Lilo & Stitch announcement makes me wonder... Is that movie considered one of Disney's 40-something "animated classics" like Aladdin, The Lion King, Emperor's New Groove, etc.?

    Here's my list:

    09/09/03 Sleeping Beauty
    10/07/03 The Lion King - Platinum Edition
    11/04/03 Finding Nemo*
    12/02/03 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl*
    12/02/03 Walt Disney Treasures, Wave 3
    01/27/04 Alice in Wonderland - Special Edition
    04/20/04 Haunted Mansion*
    08/17/04 Mary Poppins - Special Edition
    10/05/04 Aladdin - Special Edition

    * - These ones I'll buy only if they turn out to be as good as I'm anticipating.


    What are these?:

    12/09/03 Recess: 5th Grade
    12/09/03 Recess: All Growed Down

    If one of them happens to be a season set (which I doubt) then I may add it to my list.

    Glad to hear that MARY POPPINS will be treated with the proper respect within a week of her 40th birthday!
