Aladdin is not donor exclusive. The one I have even has an uncensored audio track.

I’d love to see that Lion King one. Disney changed so much for that. I do have a laserdisc rip. Would be nice to delete it.

I don’t know about a 35mm scan of Song of the South, only a 16mm scan available on myspleen.

This is one of the releases on myspleen:

V2 Disney’s Song Of The South [35mm Restoration]

Song Of The South is well known as the “Banned” Disney Movie, with no official DVD or Blu-ray of any type, with the highest quality official version being a Japanese Laserdisk. This is based off of a 1080p 35mm scan, this is a huge improvement over most versions.

I’ll be doing Lion King hopefully this year, hopefully we’ll be re-scanning SOTS sometime and BATB hopefully later in the year from a better print. I’ll also be digitising several classics this year from a collection, we’re just working out how best to get the films cleaned first and then they’ll all be transferred en-mass (or as we can afford to) and I should be able to share with donors. For example, we can scan 3 or 4 distinctly separate Snow White prints on 35 and 16mm. There’s something like 20 prints probably covering about 8 classics we can scan in that collection.

I’m still hamstring by funding though.

Lion King would be so awesome and so needed!

Regarding Snow White, I believe Thunderbean did it

Sleeping Beauty as well

I know all details of the TB scan of SW. It’s not at a quality that I personally would be happy with and I feel we can improve upon it even if I was to borrow the same print (a 1975 print if I’m not mistaken) and do a fresh transfer. I’m not bashing the scan at all, but it’s pretty basic especially if you care about early theatrical colours since by the 70’s they were recoloured. That’s a technical limitation of the film material itself.

On Thunderbean what is the 1967 feature, and 1973 feature?

I don’t want to order them unless they are Jungle Book and Robin Hood.

I assume Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are pre reanimated copies?
I have the pre restoration Sleeping Beauty on Laserdisc, but snow white does not exist. So maybe i should get these.

But Sleeping Beauty is 1959… whereas Cinderella is 1950? So which is right? Does anyone know?

The 1967 and 1973 features are The Jungle Book and Robin Hood (and they’re both open-matte). Thunderbean always addresses the Disney film prints they sell on disc as “[year of release] features” (for somewhat obvious reasons).

It’s more likely Cinderella.

Interesting…open matte. That would make them more desirable for these titles. So I guess add these 2 for the film scans list.

Cinderalla of Thunderbean is actually 16mm not 35mm. Don’t know about the other Thunderbeans.

That’s so cool! I didn’t know that Thunderbean sold BD-R discs of scanned Disney movie prints. I’ll have to purchase their BD-R of Cinderella sometime. After all, it was the very first Disney princess movie I saw as a kid, especially on that 1995 VHS (which I sadly replaced with the 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD. Yes, kid me didn’t mind Disney’s over-restored versions of their animated and partially-animated movies, and I regret liking Disney’s over-restorations).

Is there any chance that someone could PM me with a link to a copy of the TB Snow White release? Or point me to somewhere it’s uploaded?

Just repeat to yourself “It’s just a film, I should really just relax”

It’s on cartoon chaos but that’s a private tracker.

And I assume there’s no way of getting in at the minute?

I hope y’all do Hunchback of Notre Dame at some point. THat’s my favorite 90s Disney film, and I’d love to revisit it how I saw back in the theater.
