Second, Walt didn't wait "ten years" to make the movie because he was "waiting for animation techniques" to improve to match his vision (boy, who does that sound like...). Walt couldn't make Peter Pan when it was originally boarded because Pinocchio, Fantasia, and Bambi had all failed to recoup their costs. Walt made Peter Pan when he could finally afford to do it.

None of this is a secret, or deep inside knowledge.

The movie looks great, by the way. Audio is a little...surprising (check out the LFE thumps when George crashes into the dresser).
What about Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Pinocchio?

Peter's shoes change color from brown to green in the final shot of "You Can Fly!", as the camera tilts up to see the twin stars. Never notced that before. Pretty sure it's a historical error, not a new painting error, but don't have time to check.

What about them? Bambi was announced as the follow-up to Snow White, but story problems and animation design problems pushed it back.

It took me awhile to figure it out (it's hard to tie Disney Renaissance films to Walt at the drop of a hat ), but I think he was saying all of them -- Pinocchio (the eventual winner), Bambi, Peter Pan, TLM and BatB -- were under consideration by Walt at some point as the follow-up to Snow White.

I clicked the link that came up after putting in the code on the Disney Movie Rewards site and it took me into iTunes where I got the app. I also received an email with after putting the reward code in that gave me a separate code and link for the storybook app.

Wow ONTRAC delivered my copy at 8:30 this morning and I'm really digging the beautiful gold slip. So glad they didn't stack the discs and this is how it should be. I also entered my code at DMR and got 150 points! Will watch this later this evening.
I'm very happy where 3-D is going, which is that it's becoming a choice - and thankfully, most people are still choosing 2-D.

Is $19.99 for the Gold 3 Disk end up being a good price?
I have been out of the loop since I preordered on Amazon w/coupon, should arrive today. Hope to never go back to the old way.
First time I did the early pre-order deals at Amazon instead of doing the Walmart/target/BB thing w/ pricematching.
I used to try to find the best deal saving 1-4 dollars here and there till I factored in Gas+time+variables of not being in stock ect with my 15mpg vehicle. Then the lightbulb turned on. My GPS gives me $ estimate per trip.

Anyway as I found from posts on here, do the math and really see whats cheapest.
My Blu viewing:
PLAYER: PS3 Slim, PS4
AUDIO: Sony 1000w 5.1 Surround HTSS360, Sony 4K reciever with harmon Karmon surround
VISUAL: Samsung 67 inch LED DLP HL67A750, Panasonic 3D AE8000u projector 120 inch electric projection roll down screen

PSN: swissmr (friend me)
Second New Blu Viewing area: Panasonic AE-8000. 120 inch 16:9 Hidden remote Projection screen. Harmon Karmon 5.1. Sony 4k Reciever.

No, some concept paintings and suggested story ideas were created, but they never even made it into pre-production, just sketches and proposals. Kay Nielsen made some paintings for Mermaid that inspired some background art in the 1989 film, but neither Mermaid or Beast ever made it out of development, nor were they ever officially annouced in the manner Bambi was. Walt started development on Bambi in 1935, when Snow White was in production...they just got a little over their skis when telling the press Bambi was next in 1937, because it took five more years to nail down and complete.

I went to 2 stores to get this. The first is a 3 story Target and I didn't see it in the DVD/Blu section. I glanced from afar at the 2nd story registers and didn't see the digis, so I went to a 2nd Target and they had books at both areas.

Please help me acquire these Scream Factory slips (in OCD Mint condition):
Cockneys Vs. Zombies,
The Howling, Phantasm II, The Fog, Prince Of Darkness, The Sopranos Complete Collection

Boo -- they stretched the 4:3 image of the original "making of Peter Pan" special to make it widescreen. Lame.

Yeah, that's how all of Disney's animated digital copies are (and most, if not all, live action digital copies as well).

Walt didn't buy the screen rights for Peter Pan until 1939, and boards weren't started until 1940. Pinocchio, Fantasia, and Bambi were all in production before Walt even had the rights to Peter Pan.

I went to Target at lunch. They had about 30 copies of the DigiBook, all up in front of one register...none in the media section. Thankfully, none had the dreaded spider clips.
