    I know that Snow White goes out of print this month, but I seem to remember hearing somewhere that some of their two disc collectors titles such as Tarzan, A bugs Life, and Dinosaur will also go OOP.

    I believe that Mulan is a goner too.

    I will be picking up Snow White and Tarzan.

    Here, you can see it for yourself:

    The image comes from the official DisneyDVD site, here. It is on the right, not too far from the top, and it cycles through about 4 different images, so watch for it.

    What's the deal with OOP? Does it mean they will never release the movie again, or does it mean that a "collector's edition" (or the like) will be released in a year or two?

    Adam,

    Just so you know Pinocchio is not on the Platinum list.

    That doesn't mean that there won't be a special edition, just that it isn't scheduled to be a Platinum.

    I'm sure people will be stocking up on these to sell on eBay for $100 in a few months.

    TARZAN's going out of print surprises me. My understanding was that everything except the Platinum series and the initial Gold series was going to remain available permanently. Obviously Disney can damn well do whatever it wants, and you can't say they haven't given us sufficient warning to stock up on endangered titles, but I guess their view is that it's best not to have too many animated titles on the shelves at any given time in order to avoid oversaturation. Spiking demand for out of print titles never hurt, either. But I'm finding little fault with Disney lately as far as DVD goes - their product has been extensive and exhaustive, and with live-action classics now being announced, I feel this studio has done a 360 degree turnaround since the format first hit the market.

    Im suprised with Snow white, it was only on the shelves for 3 months. Also Pinnochio was supposed to be discontinued back in October...This is one of the reasons it was offered as a freebee with the preorder of Snow White (through the Disney Store) All 7 discs offered were to be discontinued..

    weird

    Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is slated to go out of print for TEN years.
    Which makes a lot of sense if you view the "Disney Through The Decades" documentary. Every ten years, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is re-released at least once either to theaters or home video. It started in the late 1930s and continues to be a tradition for The Walt Disney Company. For those wondering about the decade span, this allows a new generation to experience the one that started it all.
    For the 2000 Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs re-issue, it was decided to release it to DVD and VHS. It could also be re-released to theaters sometime before 2011 and then a new decade will begin allowing a new generation to enjoy this film.
    Pinocchio could find its way back to DVD as a special edition. The same goes for Mulan since both these titles have letterbox widescreen transfers.
    But for Tarzan, the standard release goes out of print while the collector's edition remains on shelves. So the collector's edition may be due for a price drop.
    Of course, that does not mean you will not be able to find these after 1/31/2001. Many retailers seem to have a nice stock on hand for these titles.

    Wasn't the Fantasia box set also going to be discontinued? I thought I heard that somewhere. I'm kinda shocked with Tarzan. Do you think they will make a better edition? I don't see how they could.
    Except for one thing: Why isn't the sound in DD 5.1? I believe it's 5.0, anyone who has it: How does that sound? Is there any bass? I think I'll pick the title up soon, unless any of u believe there is room for improvement[​IMG]

    I don`t think rutger_s is right. It`s the Tarzan Collector`s Edition that goes OOP and not the single disc. Actually if you look closely,Tarzan Movie-only is not yet part of the Gold Collection! So i`m sure Disney will re-release that with a new cover soon. But it`s the Tarzan CE that goes out of print.

    I don't know if anyone else has seen this but it was a surprise to me. While browsing at Best Buy they had a new Disney animated collection. It was about $200 and included Fantasia Anthology, Tarzan Collectors Ed, Dinosaur Collectors Ed, A Bug's Life Collectors Ed, and Toy Story Toy Box (I think Snow White Platinum was also included). I would have bought it but I already owned all of them seperatly, (except for Tarzan Collectors Ed, which I did pick up) because it looked like a great deal if you don't own all those.
