    Song of the South release?

    Hi everyone!

    First, I hope I am putting this thread in the right category...if not please fell free to move it!

    Second, I have just read on another site that Disney will be releasing Song of the South in DVD form some time in 2006. What I read was, that it is now being considered a historical film, which would allow its release. It went on to say that the film would be in a gold box.

    Can anyone tell me if this is true? Would love to add it to my collection!!

    Thanks for the help and have a Disney Day!!

    This may be somewhat dated by now, but it's still the best information that I know about--

    www.snopes.com/disney/films/sots.htm

    Hope it's of some use.

    Whoa, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Note the full text of the entry:
    60th Anniversary Edition DVD rumored for Fall 2006
    (bolding mine)
    Let's wait and see when that becomes solid.

    Rumors abound. Last rumor I read was that SoS might undergo a 'politically correct' remaster. I remember something about removing or renaming the 'tarbaby' sequence. Very insensitive by today's standards, absolutely, but this may be part of the reason why Disney has not released a classic (and Academy Award Winner). If it is released, don't be surprised that it is not quite the same as it was in its original release.

    I will be terribly upset if they change any of this classic movie!!!!!!

    That would be so sad if they had to edit it. At least I have it from Canada and can see it "uncut" lol.

    I hope so. I think it's so STUPID how people get about it. Especially since i've never seen it.
