The Toy Story change was made before the first DVD release. The original opening never made its way to digital home video, only laserdisc/vhs.

The original opening was left intact on the 2000 DVD releases and the 10th Anniversary Edition.

The change for Toy Story’s opening logo occurred in 2009 with the 3D re-release with Toy Story 2 in cinemas and has been that way since. 😃

That Lilo & Stitch change is not new. It was changed for the UK way back then.

I heard about that, but I just checked D+ and it’s there. No real opinion, it doesn’t stick out like some Star Wars changes. Not sure it looks like an oven (at the very least, it’s clear she’s moving a pizza box and there’s no oven door). It be cool if they gave the US version but I think they have trouble with alternate video and have to pick the safest choice. I know they JUST fixe Simpsons.

Does anyone know where one can get restored versions of Disney classics? Myspleen has Song of the South, a Lion King laserdisc rip, but not much else.

Has anyone seen Peter Pan on Disney+ (if it’s there)? I’m curious how that looks compared to existing copies. Still looking to do some sort of restoration to the colors and oversharpening of the Limited Edition DVD.

Same question for Snow White. How does the Disney+ version look?

I don’t have D+, but I assume it must be the same masters from the BD, because both were released under the Signature Collection (Snow White in 2016 and Peter Pan in 2018) recycling their old BD transfers

Oh sorry, my mistake. I must have mistaken it for another movie.

Hey, a little positive news: there’s a 1080p Make Mine Music somewhere around the internet and it’s uncensored.

Cool news. All I could find was a Japanese laserdisc. Not bad but the fact there’s an HD version floating around is still a nice find.

That’s what I remembered too. A rare change I don’t like (the fade from the original log and the wallpaper was cute). On that note, I’ve been re-watching all the Pizar films and A Bug’s Life and The Incredibles are the only ones to keep the original Pixar-only Disney castle. All were ones rereleased in 3D so that makes sense.

I recently watched 101 Dalmatians and The Great Mouse Detective on Disney Plus, both looked great in my opinion. There are some strange colors in 101 Dalmatians but I don’t necessarily think it’s the transfer/remastering. I also forgot how incredible the animation was during the Big Ben sequence in TGMD.

I think Cars had it’s original castle too, the 2007 BD did anyway… It was replaced in the 2019 repackage/D+.

Hello,

First of all, thanks for all the amazing info in this thread. I’m trying to find the most accurate/best version of The Little Mermaid. Just curious if anyone has any recommendations on what I should look for? I’m interested in the best unaltered version available. Like most Disney releases, I assume none is perfect, but I certainly welcome any suggestions or recommendations.

Thanks for your time!
Zack
