I’m happy to report that I will be taking this on, just ordered the blu-ray from US amazon 😃

Oh, thank you so much kk650!! 😃

Here’s another video that I found from hometheater forum, with comparison of previous HD master and bluray.

Ok, what happened with the original poster?
Maybe his thread was more like a suggestion than a statement?

A German DVD of Sleeping Beauty came out in 2002. Does anyone know if this predates the Lowry restoration? http://www.disneyinfo.nl/dvddetail.php?film=1863

It could be - here are some screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/Q3uIi
Compared to the Platinum/Diamond Edition the picture is slightly cropped and has a more filmic look.

there isn’t any NTSC DVD of this version released?

Maybe the 2003 Special Edition DVD that DoctorM mentions is the same?

By the way, I found some comparisons of this German 2002 DVD with the UK Platinum edition, and indeed it seems pre-restored, with grain:

By the way, can someone let me know what shots had their colours altered on the Blu-ray?

well, i think all of it has altered colors.
i would be particularly interested in this (and similar scenes from the end of the first segment, where we had a dark backgound) because the change was so radical.
in vhs and dvd versions it’s like this:

but in the bluray it’s like this:

i thought the first made more sense. (the light coming out of the darkness)
how is it in the print?

DoctorM do you know if the Hercules DVDs you mention are transfers of a film print/negative?

I found the Gold Colection pocahontas DVD which is the version I will be watching because it has film grain, and I love grain even in CAPS animation.
It gives life to the film (compared to the flat digital look) and also ties all elements (hand-drawn and CGI) together.

I’m afraid I don’t know about Hercules.
A good source to check for details on different versions is DVDizzy (formerly UltimateDisney.com): http://www.dvdizzy.com/disneyanimatedclassics.html

Yes, I know about this.
But the reviewer says this:
“I didn’t notice any problems as far as grain, smudges, or print defects of any kind.”

i don’t understand if he considers grain a problem and this DVD doesn’t have grain, or if the DVD has grain and isn’t presented with any problems.
He doesn’t say where the transfer is sourced from.
Unless the mention of “print defects” implies that this is sourced from a print.

team negative1 - star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version (release details and updates)
Time

I wanted to repeat my comment from myspleen:

WOW! What a milestone release!!

Thank you so much about this to everyone involved!
Your dedication to this project was unparallel!

I have one question though:
The 5.1 audio in Harmy’s release was coming from the 70mm 6-track audio, right?
Could that audio sync with this release? (i mean if I extract it from that mkv and insert it in this one).
or is it going to be included in the BD version?

edit: Ok, my questions were replied at the comments section of myspleen.
Apparently the 5.1 audio doesn’t sync with this release.

Molly’s (?) LD preservation has better colors than that Russian DVD:

Song Of The South

Darth Lucas said:

Something I would love is if Disney decided to do some kind of Criterion style box set of the life's work of Walt Disney which included films like Song of the South where the general population may not have a huge interest in it, but it would be huge for collectors and film buffs.

 I would be interested in that, and I'd love it if it included all their disney classic animation films, unmolested from the rotoscoping/degraining restoration in their pure grainy form as they were presented at the theaters! (something that again most people wouldn't have interest in).

I would be extremely happy and moved if they looked like the new Land before time Bluray!
