I want Snow White and Fantasia but do no want to pay the high prices. Hopefully these are rereleased soon.

They'll finish their Diamond Edition line before re-releasing Snow White. Aladdin won't be released until October, then probably pinocchio in the fall.

I'm guessing this Diamond line and the concurrent line of Special Editions could quite possibly be the last time these films are released on physical home media.
There's every chance you may only have a Digital-only option in a few years time.

That's why everyone's so antsy about the remainder of these canon titles being released. At the pace things are moving and the way things are changing re: physical home media, it kind of feels like it's now or never for these titles.

It would be a boon to the UHD Blu-ray format if the next classics cycle started with 2160p, 10 bit, cinema DCI-P3 color, and Dolby Atmos or DTS:X immersive audio (they already remix to 7.1, so why not go all the way?).

Animation would POP off the screen in UHD.

I honestly don't see the UHD format lasting long on physical media, there'll be a hue push to digital.

I was at a seminar with Jeffrey Katzenberg last year and he mentioned that the industry is moving towards strictly no physical media within the next 10 years. It'll be completely digital and you'll pay for titles depending on the size of your screen.

That happens and you will be on your knees begging for the return of physical media.

And besides, 10 years is about the life cycle of a format anyway. What I think he's saying is that UHD Blu-ray will be the last of the physical media. The infrastructure isn't there for that kind of internet load at this time.

God that sounds absolutely dreadful.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not 100% anti-digital. It CAN be great. Like, I love using Netflix because it IS very convenient for when I just wanna have something on in the background and not have to worry about switching discs and stuff, but I also like being able to watch what I want to watch when I want to. I hate the idea of not having access to something just because it's taken off a server or there's a bad Internet connection or something.

I knowww, I'm really not looking forward to it!

It's just another way of controlling how and when we watch everything.
Disney would have an absolute field day, you'd buy a film from the classics canon for a limited time and then have them dump it off the server (back in the vault), revoke your rights to it for 7 years then make you pay for a limited license again. Sad thing is I can actually see that happening.

In the seminar Katzenburg also touched on films soon having very short three week runs at the cinema then being made available on digitally either immediately after the cinema run (day after!) or concurrently with the cinema run... So you'll have the choice to watch a new release in cinema or at home.
Sounds really sucky.
Anyway, enough on that, I guess this isn't the forum for such discussion...

Mr. Katzenberg has been having a rough time of late, four write-downs for box office failures, losing production space, firing 500 employees...He's still the guy who said there was no future in computer animation, so I don't have much faith in his crystal ball.

While I don't doubt he said that, the fact that we haven't heard it again since then makes me believe it was merely an idea being tossed around that he let spill. Movie studios are a fairly dim group, but they love money and this strategy would absolutely KILL box office grosses. The masses would avoid paying the premium prices of seeing a film at a cinema and wait three weeks to watch it at home. Pirating would also become a much bigger problem than it is now. If HD digital files of the film were released three weeks after their theatrical debut and people had a choice to pirate the film or pay $20 for a digital copy of it, a huge amount of people would go the free route just out of convenience. This would be a mistake that could cost studios hundreds of millions of dollars. Not a risk I see any major studios taking any time soon.

Let's look at Avatar as an example as it's the highest grossing film of all-time. It made roughly $760 million domestic. $379 million in the first three weeks. $381 million in weeks 4 through the end of its run. Had they removed it from theatres and released it digitally at that point they would have missed out on over half of the total domestic gross, Plus, you'd have to take in to account the probability that box office numbers wouldn't be as good during the three weeks due to the fact that a digital home version was coming in less than a month. Sure, $20 per digital copy times millions of home viewers would make up for some of the lost cash, but when you factor in the number of Blu-rays and DVDs the film sold, digital likely wouldn't be enough to even scratch the surface of the potential full-run theatrical + physical media earnings.

Default Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD)

Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD):

Release date: August 18th, 2015

This is a collection of the recent WDAS shorts including Frozen Fever, Tangled Ever After, Paperman, Feast, etc. They probably realized they can cash in on Frozen Fever instead of throwing it on another Blu-ray release as a bonus feature.

Cover art:

Let's just hope the rest of the canon films will also be announced for August 18th.

I'm curious about the full list for this shorts release. The cover shows "Lorenzo," which has not been released on disc before, so I hope we'll get some more rarities.

Surprised there hasn't been official for Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection release. I already knew about this set a few months ago which Disney was working on (couldn't say but made a hint on the Frozen threat). This is all I know and the shorts that would be included unless Disney made some changes.

Shorts on this set:
-John Henry
-Lorenzo
-The Little Matchgirl
-How To Hookup Your Home Theater
-Tick Tock Tale
-Prep and Landing: Operation Santa
-The Ballad of Nessie
-Tangled Ever After
-Paperman
-Get A Horse
-Feast
-Frozen Fever

Unsure about bonus features. I'm guessing an official announcement would be soon (maybe along with other titles). DVD is also in the works for those DVD buyers unless Disney scratch that plan. If sales are good there's a possibility of Volume 2.

And a lot of those shorts were rendered in 3D and of course there's no 3D Blu-ray, being Disney and all.

It would only affect 5 of these shorts. That would have a runtime less than 40 minutes.

Either way, let's show Disney that shorts should be released on physical media!
