Hey guys,

I've recently - pretty late, I know - discovered the DVD+Book-Sets for me. After I got all Germany ones I would still want to know which were international publiced. Let me start with a list of titles I know about. In case you have anything to add, please respond :)

And to make it clear: I'm talking about this kind of packaging: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/5 ... AA300_.jpg
I know France gets a special book with every Diamond Edition but I do not count these here. Links are to local shops (Amazon, etc.).

  • The Jungle Book (GER, UK)
  • 101 Dalmations (GER, UK)
  • Sleeping Beauty (GER, FR, UK)
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (GER, FR, IT, US, UK)
  • TinkerBell (GER, IT)
  • Brother Bear (GER, IT)
  • The Fox and the Hound (GER, FR)
  • TinkerBell and the Lost Treasure (GER, IT)
  • Beauty and the Beast (GER, IT, UK, US)
  • TinkerBell and the Great Fairy Rescue (GER, IT)
  • Toy Story (IT)
  • Toy Story 2 (IT)
  • The Rescuers (FR)
  • Robin Hood (FR)
  • Pinocchio (FR)


These are all I could find using simple researches. I can, however, confirm the list of German releases is complete. For the other countries I can't speak and am addicted to your help :)

Why do you not count the books that come with every Diamond Edition in France? And where can I learn more about those?

And the UK always gets such books, too? I know Sleeping Beauty got a book with the last Platinum Edition, is that the same thing?

@kylemj: Thanks, I've added it to the list.
@Disney Duster: I'm actually not sure if they come out frequently but here are two I was able to find for you at once: Lady and the Tramp 1+2 & Bambi 1+2. As you see they look completely different and were no where else released than France. So I don't consider them as part of this "collection series".

Oh, those look nice but are really not...when I was in France two weeks ago I saw these and they looked really flimsy...they also had one for the lion king trilogy. Didn't buy them though.

I did always like the Jungle book and 101 Dalmatians and Pinocchio ones, but since I have these in several editions, I didn't buy them. Maybe if the entire Platinum line had a release like that I would have.

I do admit I'm intrigued by the Alice In Wonderland and Sword In The Stone Collector's Set....but to me, I don't think they're worth what they're going for on Ebay.

I really like the Sword in the Stone one, it came with lithographs and some other nice things to look at.

I have the books that came with the US DVD releases for "Lion King," "Aladdin," and "Cinderella," as well as the US Blu-ray releases for "Beauty and the Beast" and "Snow White." I love the books, and would love to pick up more like them for other Disney films.

Those were included in this gift sets with a Senitype film frame, right?

I remember the DVD's coming with the film frame, but not the Blu-rays. I also remember the DVD's coming with cards that had sketches of the various characters, but again, not the Blu-rays.

Snow White got a DVD/Book release in the UK both as a Platinum and later as a Diamond edition. Also, Pinocchio got the book treatment in Spain.
