Disney Pinocchio (1940) (The Signature Collection)



https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Pinoc...lu-ray/103613/


Quote:
This weekend at D23's Destination D:Amazing Adventures event at Walt Disney World Resort, Tyler Slater and Nicole Nalty announced the addition of Disney's animated classic Pinocchio to the celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and gave members of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club the first look at the film's all-new trailer. The new release of Pinocchiowill be available on Blu-ray on January 31, 2017, and includes hours of new and classic bonus features.

Pinocchio tells the tale of wood-carver Geppetto's beloved puppet who embarks on a thrilling quest – with faithful friend Jiminy Cricket – that tests his bravery, loyalty and honesty, all virtues he must learn to fulfill his heart's desire: to become a real boy.

Pinocchio is considered one of the greatest animated films ever made, with two Academy Awards -- for best original score and best original song "When You Wish Upon a Star" – and a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, it will delight a whole new generation of dreamers with its masterful animation, unforgettable characters and award-winning music. The Walt Disney Signature Collection release includes hours of classic bonus material and exclusive features including a reinvented rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star" created and performed by music influencers from Disney's Maker Studios; never-before-seen artwork from the film's Pleasure Island sequence; archival recordings of Walt himself during "Pinocchio" production; and a recently restored and scored 1927 short featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

D23 is the official Disney fan club named in honor of the year 1923, when Walt left Kansas City, headed for Hollywood and founded what would become the Disney Studios. D23 celebrates Disney's stories, characters, songs, and experiences that have captured imaginations the world over, offering members behind-the-scenes exclusives, member events, discounts and special offers.

Pinocchio is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround. Extras include:
Walt's Story Meetings: Pleasure Island – The Pleasure Island scene in "Pinocchio" had much more development than what is seen in the film. Join Pixar's Pete Docter and Disney historian and author J.B. Kaufman as they explore artwork recently discovered in Disney's animation research library revealing some of the attractions, gags and games, which Disney animators created for this iconic location of the film, that never made it on screen.
In Walt's Words – "Pinocchio" – Hear Walt himself discuss the making of "Pinocchio" through archival recordings and interviews.
The Pinocchio Project: "When You Wish Upon a Star" – Music influencers Alex G, Tanner Patrick and JR Aquino from Disney's Maker Studios, a global leader in short-form videos, gather in a creative workspace to create their rendition of the film's signature song, "When You Wish Upon a Star," and produce a fresh new music video.
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in "Poor Papa" – This recently restored and scored 1927 short features Oswald the Lucky Rabbit who gets multiple visits from the stork and is forced to attempt various methods to help stop the onslaught of baby deliveries.
Classic Bonus Features – These offerings from prior home entertainment releases include hours of bonus material, such as the making of "Pinocchio," deleted scenes, sing-alongs, storyboards and theatrical trailers.]

Both Snow White and Beauty And The Beast were first listed as "postponed" on that database, I think it's safe to say that Pinocchio will be the next Signature Collection Edition for early 2017 (the "Diamond Edition" listing will surely change).

EDIT: Also found this, looks reliable but no idea if that's linked to the new release.

OMG!!! I thought this was gonna happen this year in 2016! Now it's finally coming out next year!

Also, I'm hoping three of the final five remaining titles will be out by early 2017.

Pinocchio was the very last Platinum Edition released in the same year Snow White was released to begin the Diamond Edition line. Seems fitting to still call it the Diamond Edition even if it is a year into the Signature Edition line.

A top five Disney movie for me. I own the DVD that came out around 2008ish, so I'll be getting this. Then I'll finally have all my essential Disney classics on BD.

I doubt it will be fixed for this new version, but there is a tiny problem with the Platinum Edition. The opening credits have the post-1954 re-issue titles instead of the original "Distributed by RKO Radio Pictures, Inc" titles.

This is not only perhaps my favorite Disney film, but I would consider it the Greatest animated film of all time (or at least tied with Spirited Away).

I'm definitely picking this up!

But I wish Disney would stick with the silver boarder, instead of the basic blue.

Very good news for those who've been waiting for this one!!

Hoping for some substantial special features to give me a reason to double-dip.

Don't really like the cover art. And what the hell is the deal with that ugly new blue border??? Looks like they're putting less and less and less effort into these.

I'm sick of Disney's lack of inconsistency.
First half of the Diamond releases had the title in the center, then the other half had the title vertically down the side.
The first Signature had the title vertically down the side, and now it seems they're centering the text again.
The first two signatures had a silver border. This one has this ugly blue border...

Just nit-picking. But it annoys me. There should be consistency with releases that are supposed to be from the same "Collection" or "Edition"

I also feel upset that I can't play the Cine-Explore feature on my PS3.

THANK YOU! My thoughts exactly (even before I saw this new cover art), it just bugs me. Titles in a 'Collection' should look like they belong together!
Good to know somebody else thinks about these things too haha

Hahha, oh trust me, it pisses me off! I'm incredibly OCD about my collection - I should be over it by now, because Disney threw away any kind of consistency between their releases YEARS ago!

You'll find a bunch of others just as anal over on the Disney Animation thread.

And don't even get me started on those bloody awful "circle" Diamond Edition slipcovers. Atleast with the first few titles they released with those, you had the option to purchase the ugly circle slip, or the slip with the full artwork. The last three releases (Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians, Aladdin)
you had no damn option!!

Is it too much to ask for one concise 'collection' with complimenting artwork and design?

Grrrrr

I might have to cave in and by this if the new bonus features pique my interest - haven't bought any of the other Signature editions as I already own the first blurays
