That would be neat to get all 3 releases. I'm anxiously awaiting Snow White to see the trailer for Fantasia coming to Blu-ray, and this just another cool release.A Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray Reviewwww.blu-news.com

Well, A Bug's Life has a trailer for Monsters Inc., which is "out now."

If they released Fantasia, will it be uncut with the original score? I heard they screw up on the dvd versions by censoring it and by using different voices?60

I'm pretty confident Disney has not had a change of policy regarding any old titles that might be "offensive" to some.

Fantasia was originally released by Walt Disney Productions itself rather than RKO Pictures, which normally distributed the Disney films, and exhibited as a two-hour and twenty minute roadshow film (counting the intermission) with reserved-seat engagements. The film opened to mixed critical reaction and failed to generate a large commercial audience, which left Disney in financial straits.
Fantasia was eventually picked up by RKO for release in 1941 and edited drastically to a running time of 81 minutes in 1942. Five subsequent rereleases of Fantasia between 1946 and 1977 restored various amounts of the deleted footage, with the most common version being the 1946 rerelease edit, which ran nine minutes shorter than the original 124 minute roadshow version. A 1982 reissue featured a newly recorded digital soundtrack conducted by composer Irwin Kostal, but was taken out of circulation in 1990 after a restored version of the original Stokowski-conducted soundtrack was prepared. The original version of Fantasia was never released again after 1941, and although some of the original audio elements no longer exist, a 2000 DVD release version attempted to restore as much of the original version of the film as possible.
Fantasia, despite its initial commercial failure, is today considered a classic film.
This isn't the topic for Fantasia though.
They release their more questionable history in collector oriented sets. They aren't marketed towards kids...as they are parents. I own those sets, and continue to add to them yearly. Quite expensive if you're going to try and get caught up now.
