Just read this........... The Lion King: DVD Status: Scheduled for release before 2010. Availability: None. The Lion King is scheduled for release as part of Disney's "Platinum Collection" VHS/DVD series, which includes ten titles that will be released at a rate of one per year beginning with Snow White in the fall of 2001. The order in which the titles will be released is currently unknown, so The Lion King may appear as early as 2002 or as late as 2010. The likeliest release date for the DVD is October 2003, one year after the Beauty and the Beast DVD release; this follows from TLK appearing in IMAX theaters on December 25, 2002, roughly one year after BatB. Oh cool! Lion King in Imax gotta check that out! Taz.
