Black Cauldron is live in 4K. I wrote a detailed report in the Sword in the Stone page—Disney actually rescanned Sword in 4K without DNR and grain intact!

Rumors have been spreading about a Black Cauldron UHD Blu-ray release since before the news got out about D+ maybe something is in the works!

Unreleased films on D+ are as follows:
4K Dolby Vision: Beauty and the Beast, Sword, and Black Cauldron
HD: Melody Time

Make Mine Music is missing but was confirmed by Disney sources before release. Maybe coming in wave 2. Also a lot of shorts in HD (def not all but more than expected with some rare-ish ones)

Check out the Sword in the Stone Blu-ray forum for a detailed report I just typed up

Fingers crossed for a Disc release soon!

I'm exceptionally hyped for the possibility of 4K releases of Black Cauldron and Sword in the Stone (hopefully with new Blu-ray pressings for Sword in the Stone). The Blu-ray release for Sword in the Stone was so dreadful that I still refuse to buy it on principle.

Yes, grain is intact, no DNR visible. Looks very faithful to an actual print. Original AR is intact too.

Friend of mine took some screenshots of the Disney+ transfer, and I have to say it looks absolutely stunning even through digital. I can not imagine just how amazing it will look on proper physical 4K. The grain, the colours, the even greater highlighted late edits (i.e: the Horned King in the last shot) all look simply phenomenal.

Agreed. Watched 30 minutes last night and it looked fantastic. Flood of memories on this movie. I saw this in the theater.

I even played the Sierra On-Line game repeatedly on my Tandy 1000 throughout the late 80's. It was near unbeatable IMO.

As soon as D+ hit my 10 year old son insisted we watch The Black Cauldron. I've taught him well. It looks pretty darn good streaming... one can only hope we get a physical disc out of all of this. And hopefully it's not a Disney Movie Club exclusive ... here's hoping!

I vastly prefer aggregators such as Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu over individual content makers such as Disney or even HBO offering their own services individually. I recognize that some of these aggregators make their own content, however that's partially due to the aggravation of content licensing in general (content creators don't license their content reasonably, generally).

In any case, my stance is that this fracturing is unhealthy for the media industry in general, and will contribute to customer dissatisfaction and, eventually, customers seeking content through shadier means. Customers were smart enough to "cut the cord" on cable TV before. The same thing can happen to streaming services.
Customers were already dissatisfied with big bundle prices, which led to cord cutting. Now there is a la carte on the menu. Pick what you like. This probably appeals to a larger customer base and will only continue to grow.
It’s just the next evolution. Don’t see it has unhealthy. Media and streaming have and can continue to coexist. Vinyl is still being sold. I would imagine that would go extinct long before home video.
