Actually, the trilogy cover art is the same cover art as the DVD version.

Riddle me this though - why are the pre-orders so ludicrously expensive?

They won't be the final cover arts, no Australian ratings logos for starters. Ezydvd wouldn't have been sent the official cover art from Disney yet, therefore they have just put up any old picture temporarily. As for the price, Ezydvd are always expensive and overcharge for blu's (that's why I don't buy from them), though I highly doubt those will be Ezydvd's final prices, as the date nears I'm sure they will drop them in price a little, or as soon as they are released.

Not that I care about whether it's a diamond or not, but that changed fast. Less than a month ago Disney Australia said it was going to be a Diamond Edition. I wonder why it has changed?

Although Disney Australia did have 3 listing for it, a double play pack, a triple play pack, and the trilogy set, so perhaps it shouldn't be ruled out just yet, cause if the triple play set is in fact released then that very well may be the Diamond Edition.

Same thing happened with Cinderella.. It was going to be a Diamond Edition according to listings but then cover art came out and both the BR+DVD and DC versions replaced the Diamond Edition banner for those stupid double/triple planner banners.

It's not like it's a big deal, I just want the movie on blu, that's all that's important. I couldn't give a stuff about the cover art to be honest.

Cover art doesn't usually bother me that much but with Disney I just wish they would continue with the Diamond boarder/banner because I collected the others. But meh, as you said I want the movie on blu-ray more then anything else

I understand and can respect that. At least we are getting a movie that so many want on blu way before almost every other country, it feels good to get it first. We'll be watching it while the rest are waiting a year to a year and a half just for a diamond banner across the top on the paper.

If the Australian version did end up being a Diamond Edition like Disney Australia originally stated, I believe the people who are wanting a Diamond Edition release would have just turned their attention to the Australian ratings logo on the cover and started complaining about it, and because of that many probably wouldn't have bought it/imported it even if it was a Diamond anyway.

It doesn't really bother me whether it's Diamond edition or not. I'm just happy it's not like Pocahontas, Mulan or Hunchback of Notre Dame where it's been packaged with the direct to video sequel. However, the direct to video releases for Aladdin aren't too bad I must say.

Eww, gross. Double play banner on an already limited cover art space.

Don't they usually do new artwork for the home releases? I swear that is old promo artwork from the time of its original release, I remember seeing it as a kid.

I'm going to see Aladdin on the big screen again on the 9th Feb, as Village are screening some old Disney titles for $8.

And I still have 'The Return of Jafar' on VHS, haha.
