Really ?! Wow, that is wonderful news !

This is going to make me sound so very stupid, but if I wanted to order from say, amazon.com, how would I go about doing that? Or should I just order it from amazon.co.uk, but order the US version ?

:)

I think you can log into Amazon.com with your UK Amazon details and all should be good. I did it a few years ago, so I can't quite remember how many screens I had to click through to get in, but I regularly buy from both sites now.

If not, I recommend creating an account anyway, you will most likely get a better deal from Amazon.com since it will be the local release :)

Thank you for sharing your information ! :)

What about currency though ? Or does it just take money out of your account as normal ?

Atlantica, with your amazon.co.uk account you can log in and buy stuff from any other Amazon site, even the Japanese one, if you can understand the text. :P

Happy shopping. :)

It will just take the money normally. I have the Amazon currency converter turned on so it tells me the cost in my own currency (which is stronger!) and all is good.

i wouldn't do that though, because it is cheaper if you turn the currency converter off. If you pre order something you can't use it anyway.

Another tip: If you want your orders faster and the price difference isn't to big, I would order from amazon.ca. I did it a few times, and they tend to upgrade your shipping option for free to priority international. I received my packages always on the next day via DHL Express- and I live in Germany. They are even faster than my orders from amazon.de! I assume they'd do that for UK customers also. Just stick with the 'normal' standard shipping and they will upgrade as soon as they send your delivery.

Peter Pan is being released in Italy on Blu-ray on November 07, 2012. Again, the cover is the same.

This Diamond Edition should give us the special features we didnt receive on the Platinum Edition.

I know that is what we all thought it was last time, the 'flight over london' bonus on the DVD; but I would LOVE for them to have a walkthrough/flythrough of 'Peter Pan's Flight'. That would be amazing, no ?!

So then it's official? Aladdin isn't gonna be next? First they screw us over royal by denying us Fantasia World, then they cut 'If I Never Knew You' from Pocahontas again and now this. I hate to say it and I mean REALLY hate to say it, but screw you, Disney. :(

Well, I just plain don't understand Disney any more, but guess that's been happening for a while now.

I am saddened that the Diamond's are not world wide now ..... will The Little Mermaid have any sort of title ? :(

Who knows, Disney is pretty unpredictable now. And if 'Peter Pan' gets its Diamond release in the US, maybe 'Aladdin' and '101 Dalmatians' will as well. This would explain, why 101 Dalmatians got no animated menu and no Disney View here in Europe. I'm officially pissed right now. :x

All I wish to know is if Disney had dropped Diamonds now in Europe and are just bashing out every single film in quick succession (Peter Pan does not even have a 'Special Edition' tagline here), OR they will do one Diamond a year, in the Autumn.

Either way, I am just supremely anxious for Mermaid, as I absolutely DO NOT want it spewed out with a Vanilla release, with the same 'Special Edition/Diamond' cover it had last time.

Why are you so upset? Because you don't get Aladdin as soon as you thought? They have not said "we are never releasing Aladdin ever on BD". They haven't even said they are dropping it from the line. It might, as someone suggested, be slated for a 3D release which is not ready yet, and so they decided not to prematurely release the BD. I don't get why people are so upset about Aladdin being postponed, it was never even given a release date. Just a time bracket, which are almost never set in stone. What is so urgent that you have to have this in HD in the next 3 months?

Btw, you weren't denied Fantasia World. You had no right to it. So Disney can't keep promises. It's not as if you relied on that promise to your detriment.

People complaining about Peter Pan, on the other hand, is a different matter. Cinderella is coming out in Australia without any sort of branding, and now my Diamond Edition collection looks as if it'll comprise of a measly 6 titles.
