I’d like to see the optical track from the print scanned and preserved as well.

A quick update: The film has been scanned even though the funding-goal is still not reached (actually we’re just a little over the half of it). Donors will be getting a v1-encode shortly, so keep an eye on your PMs. Thanks to everyone who’s donated so far!

For everyone else who wants to participate there’s still the opportunity to help funding the remaining amount.

Some screenshots from the film:

There was only one bigger splice where frames were missing, the rest is in sync with the official BD. There’s a bit of dirt left on the film and also a few thin lines on the very right (also some green lines in very few scenes) as can be seen on the screenshots above, but nothing to worry about.

Not sure if it helps, but I was one of the donors for The Little Mermaid and in a PM I was explained why that one is also limited to donors. All I can say is that the reasons sounds legit to me.

something other than copyright law?

Received a donation from pleasehello - thanks!
And a small addition to the question what’s the point of this preservation - here’s a good example:

35 mm:

Blu-ray:

HDTV:

The 35 mm-print is the only version where the candle in Mulan’s hand “makes sense” since the background is dark and the candle is the only light-source in this scene. The Blu-ray and the HDTV look like there’s also more light and the candle is technically useless.
