Awesome! I think someone needs to post this info in the smackdown forums with a "Where's Disney?...Releasing classics, that's where!

This shows major support for Blu-ray given that Disney is opening its vault to classics such as this one and Sleeping Beauty next year.

I was impatiently awaiting the new DVD, and to hear it will now be on BD is just too cool!

I still don't have a BD player (or HD DVD for that matter), but I'm not going to be able to hold out much longer...

This is AWESOME news! I've been waiting for Disney to start releasing their real movies for quite some time. I've never seen the Jungle Book, and I've been waiting for its eventual DVD release to see it for the first time. This Blu-Ray release should be a real treat then

We called Disney for a confirm on this news, and unfortunately they say this info is inaccurate. It looks like it emanated from typo in a Home Media Magazine Article. 'Jungle Book' is coming to DVD in October, but not Blu-ray...

Man, thats a real shame. Disney should really work on getting their classic animated films out on Blu-Ray. I'm tired of settling for stuff like Dinosaur and Chicken Little

I guess they just want everyone who bought their DVD releases to double dip on stuff like Sleeping Beauty before they release anything else...
