Having watched LADY AND THE TRAMP, there are quite a few more blu releases this year:
LION KING 1-1/2
LION KING 2
THE RESCUERS/THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER 2-pack
POCAHONTAS/POCAHONTAS II 2-pack
LADY AND THE TRAMP II
BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA 3
TINKER BELL SECRET OF THE WINGS
Also, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and BAMBI will be returning to The Vault on April 30.
Not mentioned, but expected would also be Disney's summer movie, BRAVE, JOHN CARTER as well as, I think PLANES.
A CINDERELLA Metal Box would be amazing! Also my preference would be for BRAVE, LADY AND THE TRAMP, POCAHONTAS and THE RESCUERS (although I don't think they put 2-packs in Metal Boxes).
I just hope Future Shop releases more Disney titles in Collectible Packaging! Even spread them out throughout the year like THE MUPPETS.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi Sayb, thanks. Since this description was previously used for 'Viva Metal Boxes', this will be the same, correct? Or is there any chance they will be Steelbooks, instead? Thanks for your help, DB

Saybinator, you have now become my favourite poster on this forum
This is fantastic news!
In my opinion, you will have more sales if you spread these out throughout the year rather than bunch the releases together in the Fall.
Mind you, the die-hards will purchase them regardless. However, there is a lot of competition in the Fall with Christmas, Black Friday, and other SteelBook or collectible packaging that all seem to centre around the Fall.
If you release these throughout the year, for example, in February or March, there is virtually no competition with major vendors and people are more free to spend at that time, in my opinion. Please pass these opinions on to your studios. (Disney, as usual, can lead the way).
One or two releases of collectible packaging a month would be ideal, I think, and don't be afraid to re-issue catalog titles either. Classics like THE GODFATHER, or THE SOUND OF MUSIC would be no-brainers.
I'm getting a little off-topic here.
Suffice it to say that I'm thrilled with the news and look forward to these releases (just like everyone else).
And yes, I would second the recommendation for more Disney Animated Classics on collectible packaging!

I'm new here, so I know I don't count for much, but I registered just so I could express my excitement for this announcement! I've bought every Disney Steelbook/Ironpack/Metal Box so far and I don't intend to stop now!
Very excited for Tangled, Lady and the Tramp, and Cinderella (although they are all a must-buy for me). Is it safe to assume that we'll get one for Finding Nemo when that comes as well? I'd also love to see the rest of the lineup for this year - The Rescuers, Pocahontas, The Aristocats.
And I second the notion of maybe going back to some of the older releases that were skipped on the collectible treatment. I'd love to see:
Alice in Wonderland
Fox and the Hound
Winnie the Pooh
Meet the Robinsons
I know, I know... I'm being greedy. But there is definitely a market out there for collecitble releases of the Disney Animated Classics.
I also agree with spreading them out throughout the year. You guys have killed my wallet every November/December for the past three years!
By the way, Saybinator - it's very cool that you're so involved on the forums with customers. More companies ought to do the same.

I'd assume that designs are already being worked on for all these, but just another greedy suggestion - the Steelbook community seemed to go ga-ga over the design on this Mexican Steelbook: Tangled Steelbook
I'd love something similar to that.
