How come it is not on sale ANYWHERE, save for Amazon marketplace and Ebay? :confused: Checked find-dvd and the usual suspects. Is there something I don't know? Disney's doing? Don't feel like paying £20+ for a 13 year old film

Happens a lot unfortunately.

Disney are the worst studio for doing it - they have the rather wretched practice of releasing films on home video formats and then putting them on moratorium not long after. :thumbsdow

Not sure why, as they'd make more money leaving them out there, but eBay or getting it used elsewhere will be your only chance of getting it ouside of an anniversary re-release or a Blu-Ray/HD-DVD release.

Seems I may have to pony up £20 on Amazon marketplace then :( Knowing my luck, they'll announce a re-release next week!

I think they release them in limited waves, so they can always get latest release prices rather than ending up selling them for £4.99 in the bargain bin. We got Lion King when it came out at the end of 2003 as a two disc collector's version with two versions of the film (rather pointless extra song added to one) along with a cute Simba bean bag toy.

Well the local disney store had none so I paid £27 for it off amazon marketplace. wrington_dvd is the seller, excellent service, arrived within 2 days of ordering. Suppose its a little pricey but its my most favourite disney. Makes me cry everytime :D

£24 for Lion King!!

I bought mine for £8.94 at Asda a year or so back and have still never seen it. Still wrapped up even lol.

If only all DVD's appreciated in value like this:D

Those seem to be the same amazon marketplace sellers, but thanks anyway

And yes... if only all our discs tripled in value :D :rolleyes: It'll take some going for me to ever spend near 30 notes on a DVD film again!

Disney are masters at limited releases and the deleting DVDs - keeps the value high - we have the Lion King (R1 SE), Alladin (R1 SE) and Lady and the Tramp (R2 SE) - I guess some of these are worth their original RRP or even a bit more?

Stopped buying the 2d animations now as my lad refuses to watch them - only Pixar 3D will do and a bit of Aardman claymation :eek:

What?! Disney of days gone by created some of the best animation of all time. I have yet to see an animation (bar a few Studio Ghibli features) which has matched past Disney efforts in their storyline and beauty

Kids these days! *grumble* :D
