I'm really excited about Pinocchio as I haven't seen that since I was little kid. Of course I'll be getting Snow White as well.


Neither of the Pixar films are favourites of mine so I don't know about those, maybe. I'll also get Sin City, and Pulp Fiction if it's not from the same master as the Nordic version (though it will most likely be.)

I'm really curious what they've decided to do with Finding Nemo since it was originally slated for a couple of months ago and seems to have fallen off the scuttlebutt grapevine.


As far as I know, The Incredibles has only ever been the subject of speculation. I sure would like to see it show up sooner rather than later, though.

I actually find the lineup rather impressive. And we know the rest will come so... Just be patient... Besides, every Pixar movie is a gem, they can't release them all on the same day either...

Not bad, see a couple possible purchases, especially if they fall on weeks where there is nothing better I'd wan't. May get Good Will Hunting and Pulp Fiction, also never seen either of those Pixar flix, Monsters Inc or Bugs Life, I'm guessing I'll get one of those as a blind buy for sure, both get way strong tomater meter scores.

My thoughts exactly. The Incredibles is my favorite Pixar release and since Nemo was announced already I would have thought there would be a release date by now. I'm sure the Toy Story's are being held back purposely for the Toy Story 3 movie.

That and the re-purposed 3D re-releases.

Great list, but sad there is no Finding Nemo which I thought was for sure in 2009 and would have liked to see the Incredibles which is easily my favorite Pixar movie.

Honestly, I'm just happy they are releasing two classic movies and two Pixar movies. Anyone who thought they were going to blow their wad in one announcement doesn't know Disney very well.



And, don't forget--this is simply what they've announced so far.

Heh just got the Pulp Fiction import. Looks and sounds great. Not interested in special features so will see no need to get the domestic release, most likely.


Pinocchio, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , Monsters Inc., A Bugs Life, Lost Seasons 1 and 2, Sin City are all pretty much guaranteed purchases, though.
