    Disney's Sleeping Beauty is to get a 2-Disc DVD in France. Picture will be anamorphic. Sound will be in DD5.1 (English & French) and DTS5.1 (French only).
    I don't have time right now to translate and post the extras, but the French Language details (and the gorgeous sleeve artwork) are at:

    If the the picture and sound are good then this looks like a Platinum Edition in all but name. Wonder what other countries will get?

    The UK edition of "Sleeping Beauty" was released today, but I can only see a one-disc edition in various B&M stores.

    However, R2 Project was recently sent a UK "Sleeping Beauty" extras-only disc in error. The menus posted on the R2 Project website are in English, but the contents of the disc appear to be an exact match for the second disc of the France edition.

    This implies that Disney has prepared a 2-Disc edition of Sleeping Beauty with English-language menus and extras. The question now is whether to wait for it to be relaesed (if ever, and wherever) or to go for the France edition in April.

    That's interesting because we were discussing this at DVD Debate - it was looking like the edition would be Pan & Scan ugliness!
    The thread in question was here.

    Sleeping Beauty was released in German-Speaking Europe about a month ago. It is a 2-Disc Set with Anamorphic Widescreen and great Special Features. It has no DTS but German and English DD 5.1.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the R1 DVD comes out soon.

    Disney recently had it restored from the Technirama negatives and actually is doing a limited theatrical run in 70mm.

    DTS would be great for this title.

    Daniel,

    Is there any other language tracks except for German and English on the disc?

    The German release is only in German and English. The April 24 French release will be in French DTS/DD 5.1 and English DD 5.1 EX.
    From my understanding there will be 2 versions released. A regular edition and a collector's edition. Both Anamorphic (2.35:1 - Cinescope).
    Here's a few links...
    Sleeping Beauty - Regular Edition
    Sleeping Beauty - Collector's Edition - Scroll Down.
