The Disney Movies Gold Collection
Walt Disney Home Video Debuts the "Gold Classic Collection"
An Animated Masterpiece Every Month in 2000
Debuting in January, Walt Disney Home Video launches the "Gold Classic Collection," a year-long video release event showcasing select titles that have inspired wonder and imagination for generations.
The "Gold Classic Collection" will have new reduced prices, and include previously unreleased, special edition and moratorium titles. Every month in 2000 will feature one to five new titles which will remain on sale, beginning with the Jan. 11 release of the Toy Story "Gold Classic Collection" edition.
All titles will be available on VHS and DVD simultaneously (with the exception of Toy Story) and include favorites such as The Aristocats, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Pocahontas, Mulan, Hercules, Pinocchio and many others.
Most titles of the "Gold Classics Collection" will be available in VHS and DVD special editions that include shared and unique special features. The "Gold Classics Collection" also will take full advantage of the digital technology to bring fun, innovative and interactive family activities to consumers. Foreign language supplemental tracks will be included on all DVD titles.
Each of the DVDs will feature prominent, full-color character artwork screened directly onto the top of the discs to assist even the youngest viewers in using them correctly with the "picture side up."
Chapter stops will allow viewers to go directly to the scenes they enjoy most, without winding or rewinding delays. The VHS editions will feature brand new, original "Gold Classic Collection" packaging and box artwork.
