I wonder if they'll do day and date with the SC release of Cinderella. Also, are they going to include Signature Collection bonus features, or just the new transfers?

If Song of the South isn't on there, they will get bonus money from me.

They'll get my  $70 for a year, especially if they have the Star Wars cartoons I missed the first time around.

I feel weird giving Disney money for this. It feels like I am supporting the evil empire, I have been saying the government should bust them up. But now they have my beloved Simpsons hostage. I guess I will deal with that when the time comes.

Celebration footage of The Mandalorian has leaked. Use the internet before it gets yanked.

Carl Weathers is the head of a guild of bounty hunters. Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) is basically like a spaghetti western Clint Eastwood/Yojimbo type.

Gina Carano is an ex-shock trooper in the rebellion. Having trouble getting back into civilian life.

The other option was Comcast buying 20th Century Fox which would have been a lot worse.

The government should bust them up and other ones like them too.

However, they also rolled this out wisely, generated positive buzz, and obliterated Apple's service announcement. They were going get a lot people's money even if it was 15 dollars a month due to the properties they own and people's fanaticism over them. The price point gets them more positive headlines/buzz and grabs casual and fringe interested parties. You can always slowly hike prices down the line anyway.

I don't necessary want to support them either but I don't know if this is where I would draw a line in the sand when I'll be buying a ticket for Rise of Skywalker (bad title) one month later. All depressing and hypocritical.

Would it? Putting aside which corporation may or may not be more evil, and any fanboy impulses at least it wouldn't be the largest movie studio/distributor absorbing the fifth largest. Universal and Fox combined made less money at the box office last year than Disney did alone.

Comcast is a content provider and internet service provider, Disney just has the content. The more content Comcast has the more power they have to control what comes into your house via their ISP's.

I am sure its over in the Marvel threads but Disney announced that End Game will debut on Disney + on Dec 11

It would be amazing if they waited to put it on DVD till after but they ain't giving up the sweet sweet Christmas money

I'm still waiting to officially hear if all or a select number of the Marvel films will be available at launch. I've heard everything from all of them, to a limited number, to only 5 of them.

It probably depends on how many existing exclusive deals are in place for the various movies.

Given that Infinity War was released on disc in either August or September, yeah, this feels highly unlikely.

The six year old asked for various Disney DVDs for her birthday, including Oliver and Company. On the one hand, it's a colossal waste since these will probably be up on the streaming service. On the other, do you have any idea how hard it is to buy a kid a present in 2019? We get all the books we could possibly need at the library. We get most movies we could possibly need at the library and there's more for her to watch between on-demand and streaming than she can possibly watch (we're about 7 episodes behind on both Star vs the Forces of Evil and Big Hero Six: the series, not to mention the new She-Ra season. This after we binged some Ducktales this weekend and Tangled: the Series a few weeks ago). We're not going to watch THAT much TV, really. She's at that crunchy age where a lot of traditional board games are dull to her but the more advanced/expensive/modern collaborative ones are still a few years away. 

Mainly, we're going "camping" in July as a present, but it's nice to have something to unwrap. So yes, we'll get her some soon to be pointless DVDs just so we can wrap something.
