    Disney DVD/Blu-ray release dates - Is there a way to find out?

    I have recently started collecting Disney Blu-rays and the recent deal (posted by K3ane) regarding the BOGOF on Disney Blu-rays has really helped boost my collection!

    Anyway, I was just comparing prices on HMV and noticed that they have the following Disney Blu-rays listed but don't have the release dates;

    Bambi, Cinderella, Fantasia (and Fantasia 2000), Hunchback of Notre Dame, Aladdin, Tarzan, Little Mermaid, Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.

    I am assuming that if HMV has them listed, they must be released sometime this year / early next year but I might be completely wrong. I have been trying to find a list or something that gives expected rates for release for these Blu-rays but I cannot find anything. There must be expected release dates for these so if anyone knows of any such list, I would be most grateful if you could let me know!

    Thanks

    Thanks but I was hoping for English release dates. The only one I can see on there is Beauty & the Beast in October.

    I doubt they are all being released this year tbh,disney like to stagger releases-hmv wont know exact dates I reckon-they will just have them all listed awaiting updates.

    I think you might be wrong, for two reasons. The first is that Disney do not launch old films in a block. They stagger them, to maximise profit. This is true both of new formats and existing formats. The second is that HMV have an awful lot of Blu Ray movies with no prospective release date, but which are ultimately bound to be released. I am sure not all of those have confirmed release dates yet.

    I am just guessing, but I'd think that most don't have confirmed release dates. Mainly for the first reason.

    I may be mistaken but I think I read once that they are planning to do 2 classic rereleases on Blu Ray a year as well as the new stuff.

    They guy is correct about Beauty and the Beast but wrong about the Lion King. The Lion King is scheduled for next year and never has been for this year.
