    Since I can't find it in stores, I assumed Disney has held production on it. Does anyone know when it will be released again?

    If you've got a region free player it's still available in most places in the UK and Ireland ( if you mean the 2 disc set ). I think it's also still available in Japan.
    If you need a R1 copy then I guess Ebay is your best bet.

    Amazon still has some copies available. I bought mine there two weeks ago.

    There´s the R4, NTSC edition from Brazil.

    It´s exactly the same (double disk, same extras), and it also comes with a nice fridge sticker.

    Is there any release that doesn't come with 3 versions of the movie crammed onto 1 disc?

    How does Amazon still have it? Do you think they will have it for much longer.

    I believe all the Platinum Series releases go on moratorium as of December 31 following their release.

    If you want them, you need to buy them soon after release since how long they'll last after January 1 is questionable.

    Sean, go to DVDPriceSearch.com. Lots of online stores still have Disney's Beauty & the Beast in stock. It's not hard to find online at all.

    Darn, I thought you were talking about the old TV show starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman.

    I want to know when that version of B&B will be on DVD! [​IMG]

    Here's some food for thought.

    The Brazil version includes Spanish and Portugese 5.1 tracks (in addition to English 5.1).

    Maybe they dropped the Work In Progress to make room for the additional audio! If so, the video could have substantially less compression than the US version!

    Another tidbit:

    All DVDs from Disney (and Fox, Columbia, MGM and Warner) are authored and mastered in the USA, in the same lab that made the R1 edition.

    I know that I am probably REALLY too late, but is there any chance I can find this to purchase on line at a Canadian DVD retailer? Don't want to spend as much as they're going for on E-Bay. Thanks in advance.
