@Nicktrunks, this release will feature its original aspect ratio of 2.55:1 and will also feature 7.1 DTS-HD MA. In the press release it says "English" as another audio option which I'm guessing is the original soundtrack restored.
I am so happy about this. I will be in DisneyWorld when Lady and the Tramp Diamond Edition comes out so I might get it there. I will also have my new Blu-ray laptop with me so I can watch the Blu-ray on my laptop. I will be staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge so I might can get it at the gift shop in my hotel.
Alas, it seems the days of the excellent Disney PiP features (e.g. Alice in Wonderland, Bambi) are over. Glad to see, at least, that unlike Lion King, Tramp will be presented in its Cinescope AR. After watching the trailer, I got slightly worried.
What a shame they aren't also releasing th 1.33:1 version as well, which has a separate negative, and is the version most widely seen when it was originally released. They released this version (NOT a "pan and scan") on laserdisc.
Nice! This is high on my wishlist, right next to Cinderella. I'm surprised they added the Digital Copy to the combo pack, I thought they don't do that in case of Diamond Editions. What's even more surprising is that they didn't change the cover artwork, it's identical to 2006's Platinum Edition DVD.
According to spanish site zonadvd.com Pocahontas is going to be released on March 2012 and Aladdin on October. However, the site does say that this dates need to be confirmed so this is not 100% verifiable information.
Forget Aladdin. Disney continues its hypersensitivity towards minorities (in this case Islam). Being politically correct seems to have a greater priority than entertaining the masses. Fortunately I held on to my Platinum Edition DVD.
