We have the opportunity to scan Jungle Book. From three IB Technicolor prints (two in English). Some work has already been done on the first print, here is a video preview of Reel 2:

As you can see, this print is in excellent overall condition with very few lines or scratches, and it is very clean. It does however have some splices, and we will need to scan the second print to do a proper restoration. The total scanning costs are around $900 (that does not cover rental, postage, or hard drive space), although I have already covered some of that as well as received some private donations. The main print we’re working from will be available for a while, however the second print is a limited opportunity. I would like to be able to scan it as well, but currently don’t have the funds to do it. If you’re interested in donating to the cause, please send me a message!

Also, we will shortly have limited access to the Sleeping Beauty and Lady and the Tramp prints as well!

Thanks!

Hi guys work is continuing on this, the first print has been scanned and previews are available for donors. We have access to TWO more complete prints! The second print will be used for a few sections, including the section in the preview where there are audio issues due to splices. The third print (not in English) will be scanned entirely! Anyone interested in donating please get in contact. 😃

Thank you so much for doing this. Something so nostalgic about watching these 35mm versus the lifeless, filtered-to-death Disney blurays
