Walt Disney Treasures in December
Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD of three new titles on their seventh wave of Walt Disney Treasures on 11th December 2007.
Predating even Mickey Mouse, the legendary and rarely-seen Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was Walt Disney’s first big animated star, and having recently returned to the Disney fold, comes out of the vault for the first time ever on DVD. The silent shorts made from 1926 to 1927 with Walt’s personal touch, are revitalized with a brand-new score specifically made for the seventh instalment of Walt Disney Treasures.
Chronological Donald, Volume 3 features the most prolific of “Walt’s Fab Five,” the short-tempered but hilarious Donald Duck in rarely seen solo shorts dating 1947 through 1950.
Disneyland: Secrets, Stories and Magic is a comprehensive look at the “Happiest Place on Earth.” The centrepiece of this volume is a new documentary with archival footage, including Walt’s own words, as well as new interviews that reveal the magic and manpower behind one of the world’s most famous destinations.
Each volume features noted film historian, author, and critic Leonard Maltin. Each volume is individually numbered, with an authenticity certificate, and an exclusive lithograph in the collectible, unique packaging tins and available just in time for the holidays, in a limited supply only.
