No problem Foxtale! :)

On the DVD, I'm sure it will. After all Disney is 100% endorsing this, and I'm sure they realize many fans would love to eventually own it.

I'm also almost positive it'll be on Itunes eventually. Dream on Silly Dreamer can be found there, even though it wasn't all that flattering to the company. Something that's endorsed by Disney will definitely find its way to Itunes since Itunes is of course linked with them now.

I was worried because I didn't think they endorsed it... sometimes I amaze myself with my stupidity... the website is part of thee official Disney website. >.< *face palm*

Thanks for the re-assurance and clearing it up for me.

Now all I have to do is anxiously await a DVD release. :D

Yeah, I'm hoping for a DVD release of it. If not by itself, I could imagine them doing like what they did with "The Pixar Story" and putting it on the Beauty and the Beast Blu-Ray.

Don Hahn has really done the smart thing here and has put out an authentic version of events that doesn't shy away from the problems and triumphs of the time. It may not delve quite as deep into the Silly Dreamer territory, mostly because that film dealt with specific events and this looks to be wider reaching. An honest, excellently "illustrated" pictorial history of the Disney Renaissance by one of its chief architects. I can't wait!

A bit OT but today would have been Joe Ranft's 50th birthday:

Also, I'm pretty sure this is a picture of him in Waking Sleeping Beauty with Tim Burton: (from the website)

Saw the film last night, and I'm still giddy with excitement!!! :lol:

The film was wonderful (go see it if you can), and it was followed by an insightful Q&A with Don Hahn and Peter Schneider. I actually got to speak with Don Hahn for a few minutes afterward. He's a very nice person, and gave some good advice to a bunch of us film students.

'Twas an evening I'll never forget. :D

Just found out that Don Hahn is coming to my school on Monday to show us the film. I'm super excited! Can't wait to see the movie and hear him speak.

I got to see Waking Sleeping Beauty at CTN-X last November, which was also followed by a Q&A with Don Hahn. That definitely 'adds' to the experience. :)

You guys are so lucky! Nobody likes the animation department in my school I guess. :P

Man I want to see the film so much. Any news yet on if there will be a release on DVD or anything?
