Yep.........due for re-release either late this year or next year sometime.

Disney films are only released every 5+ years so they are very hard to get hold of if it's been a while since they were last out.

I bought the Lion King for 50p at a church fete last year

Aladdin was released last year, but is now unavailable again, that's how Disney release their films. Makes as many people as possible buy them when they are released.

Then after 5 years they release a newer version - 'remastered' '2 disc DVD' 'Blu-Ray' etc.

Also by limiting availability it makes sure they never end up in the bargain bin or on clearance. Keeps the price consistently high - rare for older films. This is another reason they refuse to sell most of their films to terrestrial TV.

If one firm deserves to be pirated it is Disney.
