I'm not too worried about any unnecessary revisions or goofs. Sure, slip-ups can always happen with sound mixing and whatnot, but when it comes to "creative revisions," Don Hahn's films are usually the ones to suffer. Musker and Clements' films, on the other hand, have only really been altered to get rid of controversy (The priest's knee in Mermaid
, Aladdin's alleged "teenagers" line, etc.). I guess the directors just don't care as much as Hahn does about "improving" their work.
They'll undoubtedly use the version with the IMAX touch-ups, but other than that, I don't think we have much to worry about.
Disney Second Screen is amazing for concept art, pencil tests, trivia etc. it's much better than navigating through menus to get to some galleries.
Maybe so, but making content exclusive to Second Screen (a feature that has varying degrees of functionality among viewers, and offered via a service that Disney can shut down at any time) isn't exactly ideal. But to be fair, if we got either, I'd prefer Second Screen over the Virtual Vault.
we won't see a lot of new extras simply because the platinum edition's extras were amazing!
Which is exactly why I'm so worried about what Disney will inevitably drop from this release. Aladdin received what was possibly Disney's greatest 2-disc DVD release ever, and there's no way 2012-Disney is going to port all of that over.
But as close to perfect as it was, there's still plenty of new material they can add. The Platinum release barely even scratched the surface in the "deleted songs" section, for example.
