Disney blu-rays are distributed by Disney worldwide, so the US release will be no different than the foreign releases besides more up to date previews.

Why is Dinosaur suddenly counted on the list? I feel like this whole time it was a separate movie and now all of a sudden it's considered part of the canon.

And considering how so much of it is actually live-action backgrounds with CGI animation added, I'm not sure why Dinosaur is included but, say, Pete's Dragon isn't.

I think it's a tuba, or some form of a tuba.

Back when Disney thought they would be a 3D powerhouse and compete against Pixar, they retroactively canonized that film. Dumb decision.

Thanks Ernest,

When you listen to the song, is the tuba also distorted? I've listened to it with my old and new system and both are distorted.. wondering if my system is not capable of playing it distortion free or if it's a distorted recording or if thats the way it's supposed to sound. Thanks for your help, my wife thinks I'm crazy!

I played this for my g-kid the other day and wasn't playing real close attention, but from the way the sound is being described, my bet is that it's a didgeridoo, which is an Australian wind instrument frequently played by the Aborigines. I'll have to go back and listen again. The didgeridoo, when played correctly (I have one but can't play it correctly) can uncannily sound electronic, but also sounds very much like the sounds we associate with certain whale calls.

I only have one alternate recording of the full Pines of Rome, and the orchestration is a bit different (although I don't think Resphigi employed Australian instruments - the piece is about a parade of triumphant Roman soldiers)...have to give it another spin...will get back.

Hey, friend, I'm trying to nail down the moment you are referring to - can you be a bit more specific? Thanks -- listening to the Berlin Orchestra perform the score right now (freaking great, by the way), and the treatment of the low end is radically different from the Levine/CSO version. As for the instrumentation - no crazy Australian influences - really just sounds like various brass instruments - for the Blu-Ray, the brass notes at the moment you reference sound like a wall-shaking combination of tweeter-shattering glory, and a concrete-smashing low-end for multiple brass instruments (high and low) that I don't think has been captured before (because that low end is nowhere to be found on the Berlin recording)...going to have to stick with Tuba and digitial recording techniques, amigo, unless you can be more specific. But the F2K Levine/CSO version is like the HD version of the Berlin SO recording on I*Tunes. Then again, I'm a moron, so...

It makes more sense than what they did in the UK, where they skipped Dinosaur but canonized The Wild instead (made by an outside studio and a cheap ripoff of Madagascar).

Dinosaur was actually made by a short-lived unit within Walt Disney Feature Animation called The Secret Lab, and its characters were all CGI; thus it meets the most reasonable definition of the "Disney animation" canon. Dinosaur's live-action backgrounds are no different than the live-action dancers inserted into Saludos Amigos and/or The Three Caballeros; but they ARE different from primarily live-action films with a few animated characters and/or sequences thrown in (like Song of the South, Mary Poppins, or even Who Framed Roger Rabbit). But then, Disney has been mixing animation and live-action ever since the 1920's Alice Comedies.

I think they're making the #@%$ up as they go -- like all of us.

Oh, I agree. It makes more sense than "The Wild"; much more sense.

Burying your car in frogs makes more sense than trying to throw a watermelon into space. It's still dumb though.

How did you get a Bambi Diamond Edition so early? Appreciate the information, going to get Fox and the Hound.

Import stores don't really care about street dates. They ship as soon as they get a title in stock

Fox and the Hound? I wouldn't have guessed that, but I'm thrilled. I wonder if the two-pack will be the only way to get the film.

Sweet, I love Fox & the Hound! I don't really need the sequel, but no biggie if it's included. I wonder which aspect ratio Disney will use for this one.

Well it'll be the original 1.33:1 for the first film. Disney have cropped any of their films to fit a 16:9 TV since 2007, and probably stopped doing it due to complaints, so they won't start again.

The Fox and the Hound is one of my least favourites, and I'm debating whether I really need it, though will probably end up buying it anyway.

However annoying that there's still no word on Dumbo.
