On Witch Mountain, to be fair, it’s only two movies, a TV movie and a remake. It’s not like all four outings are part of the same timeline or universe. :)
And the "fourth" reboot-from-scratch movie just blares in from the beginning with the original 70's movie's twist ending that the kids were [SPOILERS], and makes THAT the main plot concept of the Dwayne Johnson-and-kids vehicle.

(Y'know, I remember seeing the original movie in theaters as a kid, and it was a twist, back then. Up to that point, everything was "cool ESP" in the Ford/Carter era.
And then the second movie came along, and just dropped the level of conversation.)

Dwayne turned out to do so well with kids in a family-chase-action story, Disney wanted to finally get that "Jonny Quest" movie going away from Warner--they had their Race Bannon--but looks like Warner held out.

Doubt it. They rarely ever do. And this one particularly doesn't look appetizing.

Mouseketeers at disney world (disneyland episode)
The 70's color ones (WDW, duh), promoting the soon-to-open late, lamented River Country? :shock:
I know it's one of the old Disney Channel relics, but still one of the titles we kept pestering Leonard Maltin for a "Welcome to WDW" Disney Treasures set, along with the WDW visitor-promotional film, and the Danny Kaye Epcot opening.

Including WDW in the Treasures line is an interesting one, as this sets were supposed to be confined to highlighting content and projects in Walt's lifetime. Yes, a lot of the extras included films that were made after Walt, but they were only included on sets that dealt with Walt-era characters or series. That said, Walt *did* initiate WDW, of course, and the timeline graphic on the back of the tins were not actually limited to the mid-60s, so I guess there would have been some leeway there to jump outside of Walt's period and present it as an extension of that. Apart from the often very much mooted A Disney Education and Around The World collections, I wonder just how many of those sets were in production or proposed before the last few switched to the Legacy sets and then got cancelled...

Maltin said he knew fans wanted the Disney Education (aka the complete Jiminy Cricket "I'm No Fool" collection), but after the MMC sets didn't sell, Disney scaled back, released the Tru-Life Adventures as non-Treasures sets, and even those weren't big sellers. Everyone in the late-90's/early-00's had wildly overestimated sales for classic-TV boxsets.
What was the Around the World collection, btw?

And the idea was always to keep some Vault "rarity" as the feature item, such as Walt's Epcot City proposal for the "Tomorrowland" set, or the live Disneyland 4th Anniversary broadcast for the "Your Host, Walt Disney" set.
It would have been nice to have the Ocala Visitor Center film that was playing in Florida while the park was still under construction, but no, we had to have the complete "Annette" series set first. :x
