I believe that's the release date for the 81-minute cut. The film premiered in 1940.

Not sure why I'm bothering to mention it, since you seem to consider the film the second worst Disney animated feature...

Chicken Little, Dinosaur, & Bolt are actually produced by Disney.
The Wild was produced by C.O.R.E. Feature Animation, which also produced Valiant, The Ant Bully, and Happily N'ever After. Disney distributes The Wild and Valiant.

Randy Newman has written a couple brilliant freaking songs for Pixar. I can't wait to hear what he's done for The Princess and the Frog.

From David Germain's report for AP from Cannes on Toy Story 3:



Did anyone else who's got A Bug's Life sit through the previews? The "now available on Blu-ray" bit for Monsters, Inc. is, like, wow.

I love Cars as well. For those folks who are unfamiliar with the internal workings of an internal combustion engine, I can honestly say that many, many cute visuals were unavailable to you as humor/eyecandy. Unless you have seen a motor fully diassembled, you will miss tons of things/components hidden in the desert landscapes and architecture throughout the entire movie. I have watched the Blu 5 times and still catch things I missed before. Cars is like a visual Easter Egg Party for us "gearheads".

Just return it to where you got it...but it will be hard since some people have a problem with honesty.

it probably wasn't mentioned as it has been on other blu's prior to this.
what I did think was stupid was how, the MONSTERS inc trailer was shown (again) under - now available.

Watched A Bug's Life with the kids this evening. I really enjoy watching BD releases of films with which I'm most familiar on DVD: I saw A Bug's Life at the cinema back in the day but I don't remember it looking this good. The CG lighting in this film is extraordinary and it's only with this BD that home viewers can begin to appreciate the colors and the attention to surface textures and small-scale translucency. Simply gorgeous.

Starlog has reprinted a nice article from 1998 about A Bug's Life.

Nice write-up on Up from the Chicago Trib's reporter at Cannes.

Dylan Brown will serve as creative director of Pixar's new satellite studio in Vancouver, which will create shorts for theatrical exhibition, home media, and Disney theme parks.

Trust me, man. 1940.

Fantasia was first released in special exhibitions in the few theaters that could be equipped with Fantasound. It played for over a year in at least one venue (never can remember off the top of my head if it was Los Angeles or New York). The heavily-cut RKO 81 minute version is the version released in 1942. The mostly restored "popular version" released in 1947.

But yeah...1940.

ADDENDUM

I think if more people realized how pointed CARS actually is as an attack against Wal-Mart and consolidated comericialism, they might change their tune regarding the movie. As one who grew up in a one of those small towns, I've seen the devastation on main street -- my home town's Main Street has morphed from hardware stores, florists, and banks to coffee shops, conveniece stores, an advanced weapons store, and desperate restaraunts.

That's what lies at the core of Pixar's Cars. It bothers me that people who grew to resent "Nascar people" of being from a certain political stripe shunned CARS and still do, without realizing CARS is a fiercely anti-Wal Mart/pro-individualist movie. CARS is the racing movie Frank Capra never made -- a celebration of America, and of American trade, while condemning unfair heavy-handed destruction of small town economics by the likes of well-funded outside forces (like an interstate highway, or *cough!* a Wal Mart in a neighboring town).

Yeah - they can't come right out and say it -- but I thought the point was profoundly made, regardless. CARS is an argument for American small-business commercial individualism, more than it is a sports film. Is Lightning a hero because of his choices at the finish line? No - he becomes a hero a bit earlier in the story, devoting himself to helping his friends and reviving their wares. The film even depicts him as being abducted from that community, in the manner of a military thriller minutes after he makes that decision. He becomes a GREATER hero via his actions at the film's finale.

Tha's Cars, friends. It's a great film. I know because of the political polarization of the country the last few years, there are some who recoil at NASCAR and Larry the Cable Guy and what have you. I say to you, that's fine, but I think Cars is the best Frank Capra movie that Frank Capra never made. I wince when people try and write it off -- it's like hearing people slag on Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Well if CARS is a hidden message against corporate evil, then WALL:E is clearly an out in the open kick-in-the-nuts-slug-in-the-face combo.

That is very true, Frank Capra would have love Cars if he was able to see it and would probably been very mad that he never oocured to him to make the movie. I always loved all Frank Capra's movies. He's sometimes very forgotten as many people will mention Hitchcock, Wells, Ford, Huston, Minneli, Kubrick as great directors but Capra belongs among them as one of the best ever (yes I am a big fan of his )

How is a Bug's Life a new release, it's a catalog title. Actually makes sense to me, they probably figure everyone already has a DVD for that movie.
