Disney Classics Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, and The Little Mermaid are returning to the Disney Vault from 30 June 2009
Each year the Disney Vault opens to release exclusive Walt Disney Classics on DVD. The prestigious nature of these Classics means that they are available for a very limited time only. In fact it could be up to seven years before you see these Disney Classics on DVD again.
Walt Disney was the original custodian of the Disney Vault, and began the Vault practice by re-releasing Disney classics theatrically every seven years. The 1937 classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was discovered by another generation of fans when it was re-released in 1944 to a new audience, and grew in popularity with each and every release from the Vault. Walt's time-honoured tradition continues today, as animated titles which once entered the Vault in VHS format now emerge in re-mastered and technically superior DVD and Blu-ray technology.
From 30 June 2009, three re-mastered Disney DVD Classics, including Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, and The Little Mermaid, are being placed back into the Disney Vault.
Featuring pristine restoration, creative special features and hours of entertainment for kids, these magical titles have been given the royal treatment and are an absolute must for any collector or Disney fan.
Take a stroll down memory lane and catch up with your favourite Disney characters - secure your own little piece of Disney history before they disappear.
Be sure to look out for the title that started it all - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - which will be released from the Disney Vault on DVD and Blu-ray on 7 October 2009.
