Rich Drees at FilmBuffOnline.com reports that Roy Disney, speaking at the Philadelphia Film Festival this past weekend, made it clear that a home video release of Song of the South is long overdue. Said Roy:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got a bunch of cohorts working with me to convince the powers that be that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the smart thing to do. [Song Of The South] is a wonderful film that deserves to be back out in the public. All it needs is context. Some of that animation is stunning, even by todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s standards.Ã¢â‚¬?
In the meantime, for those who can’t wait, Disney has apparently released SOTS in France, in English, and was selling it at Disneyland Paris! Check this out. (This turned out to be a bootleg.)
