New Release: Sleeping Beauty: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray and DVD
Next Tuesday, Sleeping Beauty: Diamond Edition (2-Disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD) will be released. The price for the Blu-ray combo pack just dropped to $19.99 this morning on Amazon which means other retailers will be selling it at a similar price. The Sleeping Beauty: Diamond Edition (1-Disc DVD) is currently priced only a dollar less.
Of course, this release is timed to precede the release of Maleficent (2-Disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD) by a month to help promote that release. After all, Sleeping Beauty has had a few previous releases--all out of print however--so you only really need it if your old copy is scratched and needs replacing. Because if you really love this movie, you already own it by now, probably in the Platinum edition release from six years ago. Despite all of Disney's Vault shenanigans. Then again, if you have a niece like mine, six years is plenty of time for a disc to be rendered practically unviewable after handling by little hands despite all best efforts. Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorites of the Disney films so I am always happy to see it available for another generation of viewers.
