    I know this is supposed to be a music message board, but does anybody know what the next big DVD is going to be? I heard Aladdin.

    The next PLATINUM Disney DVD will be THE LION KING: Special Edition. More than likely released in November/December 2003.

    Aladdin will be Disney's PLATINUM DVD release for 2004.

    The Digital Bits is reporting that 20K Leagues Under the Sea will be one of the next VAULT DISNEY titles with a possible release date of May 13, 2003.

    Still no word on Sleeping Beauty - Special Edition release date.

    Sleeping Beauty DVD (SE, widescreen): Hey, it's nice, just for once, for us here in the UK to get a release before the US! :)

    The Sleeping Beauty DVD is a great one.
    I bought the German version last spring, but didn't realize that disc 2 would be in German only...
    So I'm now updating it to the UK release :) It also has a much nicer cover art.

    :'(Out of curiosity, wasn't "So Dear to My Heart" supposed to be out by now? For about a year, the cover art has been on Amazon as it to be a Disney Gold Collection piece...but it's just never been available.

    Anyone have any updates? :-

    (PS: RIP Diamond Horseshoe Jamboree: Feb 1, 2003 :'()

    Anyone know if the Golden Horseshoe is relatively safe at this time?

    Well, the Golden Horseshoe hasn't really been the same since the original show left. They've had small skits and Woody's Roundup at various times, but I wouldn't be surprised if it went away too. Not to mention the building is falling apart and is in desparate need of paint and repair.

    Ah, that's the same rumors as always, then. I've never actually been a fan of the Golden Horseshoe...I think I saw the original show twice and have yet to see the current running in its entirety. I'm just concerned because I would feel badly for the performers in it.

    OFF THREAD: The Diamond Horeshoe should still be selling food. But it will be a meet and greet with Woody and Jessie from Toy Story.











    It's just cheaper to close the whole park. ::) :'( :'( :'(

    So another Magic Kingdom classic is getting dumped huh? This is terrible. I enjoyed the original Diamond Horseshoe show so much, as many others have. The latest version was funny, but not the same quality. Fairly soon, the Magic Kingdom will resemble nothing of the way it used to be. The richness is going away. How sad.

    :'( :'( :'(

    Yes, it seems like everything is becoming one-dimensional. What with dumping real entertainment in favor of character meet & greets, or plywood cutouts to take photos in.

    Soon, the whole Disney experience will boil down to taking a picture with a character for $50 and calling it a day. No more Pirates, or Haunted Mansion either. No, instead, let's take our picture next to this great looking old spooky house, and oh look, here's someone dressed up as a ghost. Wow, what a great park this is, I can't believe we used to think rides were cool! Man, they should charge me $100 for the experience I'm getting here!

    Sorry to be so cynical, but it's late; I'm tired, and I just see a disturbing trend at the parks to cut back on the real entertainment in favor of crap. I mean, the kiddies can already meet Buzz & the gang over at MGM Studios, and they are sometimes in Mickey's Toontown Fair too, so why another location? I know they're popular, but what happened to the variety?

    Oh well...

    According to Amazon.fr (link below), they're releasing a 2-disc collector's edition of Peter Pan in France.
    It includes the black-and-white live action Peter Pan as well... The other extras seem to be mostly the same as on the current US/UK releases.

    Apparently they're also releasing a box set of Lilo and Stitch in France, including the DVD, the CD soundtrack, a poster and some postcards.

    Anyone know if the French version of Lilo and Stitch is edited like the German and UK versions are said to be?

    Dang. As usual, I had my horseshoes confused. This IS the WDW version that's closing down. SIGH.

    Gee, Sharon. WDW continues to shrink. What new attractions have opened in recent years? I can't think of any. Has that Space attraction opened yet in EPCOT (where Horizons used to be)? Or is that on the same kind of "opening soon" track as Test Track?!?!

    All I can think of is Aladdin's Magic Carpet ride. ::)

    Things are getting so bad, you probably want to move back to SI--where temperatures this week have averaged 732-below zero. ;D

    Maybe it's time for Eisner and his current cast of Disney villains to try some anti-psychotic therapy, because their marketing behavior recently is certainly nothing short of schizophrenic. 20,000 Leaugues does sound awesome, appropriate treatment for a landmark film--but then the careless disregard for the other recently released classics is just abominable--and really puzzling!

    Miyazaki is really loved in Japan--I finally did get a chance to see Spirited Away--three times, I think, in the theater, and we already own a Japanese DVD version(my son was really taken by the film--just a great artistic vision!). But this still doesn't warrant the blatantly casual treatment of classic films that form the foundation of the company's cinematic history.

    As I suggested earlier, a little Thorazine in the morning java might do the "big boys" some good before the current trashing continues--it's just getting harder and harder to figure out what happened to the company's simple common sense. Mike.
