For what it is worth, I think this may be my favorite wave of "Generations Collection" titles released. I remember watching "Return to Hannibal" as a kid and enjoyed it, I'm excited to finally see the third "Witch Mountain" film and am happy that that Disney series is finally fully complete on DVD, I remember seeing "Endurance" when I was younger and liked it, and the other two titles I have heard good things about. I've enjoyed things I've seen John Denver act in in the past, so I have a good feelings about "The Leftovers."
I personally feel like with each new wave, Disney Home Entertainment is starting to get their footing on these release and I suspect future waves will be even more spectacular then even this one! I'm excited to see these new titles.
A little concerned though!
Is there anyone who knows about the "lifespan" of these DVD-Rs?
I heard if properly stored, they can last for a good 30+ years.
I have heard that as well.
I do hope they consider releasing the remaining higher profile Walt titles (Light in the Forest, Sign of Zorro, Prince and the Pauper, The Horsemasters, Escape in Florence, Sammy the Way Out Seal, Ludwig VonDrake, etc., etc.) as pressed DMC Exclusives if not retail.
I suspect "Light in the Forest" will get a retail release sooner or later. This based on pure logic, but both it and "Justin Morgan" were originally released as Disney Education titles and now "Justin Morgan" has been released. I'd have a hard time believing the other won't end up as well. Will it be DMC or MOD? Hard to say, but I feel good about it.
Just please help out with our letter writing event and let Disney know what you want to see released. I want to see more "Walt-era" titles and feel we have a great chance to do just that before this year is done. Keep in mind, we have 11 months to go still, so who can say what other great releases are yet to come?
