I have to admit it. The artwork for the cover of this release is very beautiful. It is a great cover depicting one of the most amazing scenes in the film.

Excellent job by Lorelay Bove.

Definitely most excited for the Fantasia and Disneyland albums! Although it's close to a year wait for both, so won't get too excited yet, lol.

I had the same thought. It'll be interesting to see what the other covers end up looking like - I hope they're as attractive and classy as this one.

I really curious about the Disneyland 60th, because while there's certainly unreleased material in the vaults, the 6-Disc 50th set was already phenomenal.

Much of the best material from Disneyland has been released. It's Walt Disney World that needs serious attention. They could easily create a box set of A Music History's magnitude for EPCOT Center. Most of that park's simply tremendous score has never been officially released. Disney already missed the 30th anniversary and they only seem to be concerned with selling food, booze and teddy bears at the place these days while completely disregarding the original intent and essence of EPCOT Center, so I'm not holding my breath.

This might just be about the best non-JW soundtrack release news I could possibly hope for (that hasn't already come to pass)! Too bad Aladdin won't be hitting another milestone for 3 years, but at least there are a couple of Menkens already announced. :D

I will probably end up getting all of these. I hope sales are good enough to keep the program going.

Yeah, no arguements here. WDW, and EPCOT in particular, seriously needs a major release like Disneyland's 50th. In any event, the upcoming Disneyland release just really confuses me. It's just so... superfulous?

Thanks for clearing that up. As you can see I'm really into those Disney scores

There are some musical similarities, and Prince of Egypt is done very much in Disney style, so it's understandable people get them mixed-up. Like with Anastasia.

This soundtrack collection is really amazing, with Disney celebrating all of these classic films. I cannot wait to hear Han Zimmer's complete score to The Lion King; the score demos will be interesting to listen to also.

George Brun's adaptation of Peter Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty will be fantastic to hear in remastered quality, and with previously unreleased material (especially the scene where Maleficent captures Prince Philip).

Alan Menken's complete score to The Little Mermaid (as well as the songs by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, plus additional, unreleased material) will be amazing to hear in remastered quality.

Oliver Wallace's music to Lady and the Tramp will be wonderful to hear in remastered quality.

George Brun's music to The Aristocats (as well as the songs from the film) will be great to hear in remastered quality.

Paul Smith's score to Pinocchio will be exciting to hear in remastered quality.

Randy Newman's music to Toy Story will be fantastic to hear in remastered quality.

Overall, this collection is a real milestone for Disney.

Yes! I need those Tchaikovksy-like fire/chase cues with those crazy strings Bruns did for these pictures, particularly this one at 1:15

Always reminded me slightly of Steiner's King Kong, for some reason.

Interesting. Which cue in particular?

On a related note, I've always been interested in the temp-tracks of Disney films. Lion King is quite known for using The Mission, and Bambi is quite clear hearing the music what the temp-tracks were (particularly some Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Ride of the Valkyries for the deer march). And even the demos before the orchestral recordings took place, in piano form. Here's a little bit from Aristocats if anyone's interested, taken from Andrea Deja's blog:

Agreed and some of these are in a desperate need of some remastering, particularly The Little Mermaid.

Oh, nothing specific, just the general swirling strings. And if I ever decided to directly compare them, I'd probably not notice many similarities. But when I first heard Kong, I immediately had to think of the Hood finale.

Lion King is quite known for using The Mission

Was there any Mozart (Ave verum in particular) in the temp, or is that Zimmer's own doing?

The opening of On Earth as It is in Heaven quotes Mozart's Ave Verum almost literally, so I imagine that was an influence too.

Lion king is a LOT closer to Mozart than Morricone was

Interesting, I didn't notice that so far. I'll make a note of it next time I listen to The Mission.

The Mozart parallels were obvious to me the first time I heard LK. The Morricone sound only became apparent last time I saw the film.

Well, I hope that "Legacy Collection" stands for preserving scores that actually/arguably can be considered a legacy. Not sure if stuff like Bolt or Home on the Range qualify... I also like how you already list Big Hero 6 for 2019, seeing as it hasn't actually opened yet...

Just being thorough!

I honestly don't think they'd release anything in this line that wasn't at least 20 years old.

Here's hoping for Mulan in 2018!

EDIT: To that point, I just adjusted the list to put a spacer between any anniversaries less than 20 years and the rest, for each year.

I have to admit it. The artwork for the cover of this release is very beautiful. It is a great cover depicting one of the most amazing scenes in the film.

Excellent job by Lorelay Bove.

It's ironic how this iconic scene was ruined in the Bluray, with Disney forgetting(!!!) to put back the clouds that Simba is chasing..

And not a word for a fix of this error!

That was on ALL Diamond Edition releases, even the DVD. I wonder if they meant to have it as a separate element for the 3D version, though.

Do you think they will have a 30th anniversary release for "The Little Mermaid" after the 25th anniversary?

I just noticed that the release months for the 2014 sets are the same as the months the films were originally released, except for "Sleep Beauty" which was originally released in January. "The Little Mermaid" is being released on the same day the film was released, November 17. The 2015 set of releases don't seem to follow this same pattern, though.

??? I have the 2 disc DVD set, and the scene does not have this issue. Every element of the film is intact... weird.

I have the 2-disc set too. That's the earlier "Special Edition" release, not the "Diamond Edition". It even includes "SEX" (or "SFX", whichever you believe it to be)
