Insert from the upcoming Lady and the Tramp Blu-Ray, posted at DVDizzy.com.

Reports of Aladdin no longer being part of whatever new "prestige" collection Disney's been releasing appear to have been greatly exaggerated! Smile

Everyone was assuming that. Like I said before, it's a natural assumption to make, but Disney doesn't always honor anniversaries.

I do have to wonder what made them change their minds, though, because that wasn't originally part of the line up at all. Maybe they figure we're far enough away from politics to have it on the shelves again? At any rate, I have a year to get a blu-ray player fml Laughing

I'm just spamming this thread now, but does that mean a possible 3-D theatrical release is being planned? That would be so sexy.

Sad we won't get it this year, but really happy Disney have kept it in the Diamond Collection.

It's definitelty slipped though as Aladdin Platinum edition came out a year after TLK Platinum Edition. Cinderella has moved forward a year!

In the last cylce Bambi was before Cinderella (moved to before TLK for Diamond Edition) and Lady was before TLM (moved to before Cinderella). So Aladdin now fills the spring gap and TLM remains the fall release for next year. Sadly this means we may not get a 3D re-release (TLM is already scheduled as 2013's 3D re-release) but then again until now we weren't getting a Diamond Edition either so anything is possible! Just keep wishing and it may happen!

I think it's more, "Disney honors anniversaries, but not always in the RIGHT year." Wink I wouldn't at all be surprised if they slapped a "20th Anniversary" label on the new edition. I remember the last Lady and the Tramp DVD and Beauty and the Beast in IMAX were both stamped with anniversary editions slightly belatedly. The White Rabbit must head these decisions.

Disappointing news from DVDizzy.com:

September 26, 2012 - An insert inside Cinderella's upcoming combo pack reveals that Aladdin has been bumped either from its spring 2013 Blu-ray release date or the Diamond Collection altogether. Peter Pan is now scheduled for a Blu-ray debut next spring, with The Little Mermaid confirmed to follow in the fall. Another booklet advertises the upcoming Blu-ray debuts of The Absent-Minded Professor & Son of Flubber: 2-Movie Collection, Pollyanna, Babes in Toyland, and Flubber (15th Anniversary Edition). No dates are given, but at least some of those are anticipated to be in stores by year's end.

Crying or Very sad

Okay, looking at the information I'm seeing, one of two things is going to happen:

1. It's been bumped back to a 2014 release so they can bring it back to theaters, as well. With BATB and Finding Nemo under-performing in their 3-D releases, they're probably doing the same thing they did to us during the IMAX releases back in the early 2000s. The Little Mermaid goes next in the fall with a Blu-ray release + 3-D release. If that under-performs as well, we probably won't get a 3-D release and they'll just give us the blu-ray. I guess I'm okay with taking that chance if there's a 3-D release involved, but if it's just being bumped back all so Peter Pan can go first and generate quick revenue without the promise of a 3-D release, I'll be very, very mad. Germany seems to be on track to get a blu-ray release, so when we're getting one is still up in the air.


2. It'll still come out spring 2013, it just won't be a Diamond Edition. It'll be a late anniversary edition, which I don't want because it probably won't have anything new on it and everyone can just hold on to their platinum editions. Aladdin's transfer was so good, there's no point in getting the same things over again unless you want a little higher quality audio.
