Does anyone know when Pinocchio is due for re-release, I've heard various dates? I know it's coming up for it's 70th anniversary, but heard it was going to be issued March 2009. Thanks.

As far as I know......

Pinocchio is due for a release in March 2009, followed by
Snow White Oct 2009,
Fantasia + Fantasia 2000 in March 2010 and then
Beauty and the Beast Oct 2010


I've got a brochure of the "Walt Disney Platinum Collection", that's how it is called in Germany and Austria, and it says that Pinocchio is released in March 2009 and Snow White in October 2009.


Thanks for that both of you. Would I be pushing my luck to ask if you know the date? Pinocchio is my little boys favourite character and I'd love to be able to give it to him for his birthday on the 28th March.

Quote from: "Tubbyherman"Thanks for that both of you. Would I be pushing my luck to ask if you know the date? Pinocchio is my little boys favourite character and I'd love to be able to give it to him for his birthday on the 28th March.

That Date is the Last Saturday in March (Also The Day of My Parents Anniversary), So Unless Disney Don't release it until the March 30th in The UK (All DVD/CDs are released on Mondays here) You should and possibly will be fine...


Looks like the Blue Fairy is watching over us... ... 001IDZ5NK/

It seems the UK version won't come with the bonus DVD as originally planned. are actually now listing the Blu-Ray as a single disc, but aren't, so fingers crossed.


i'm really looking forward to the release, i already preordered the Blue Ray edition with the bonus DVD :D


The release date is this Tuesday (3/10) in the USA and Canada.


Received our copy yesterday, I think my little fella has already watched it 3-4 times  :D


have to wait for the release a little longer, here on march 19. But can't wait :D
