Walt Disney Treasures live again!


It was announced late Friday and posted on several other websites since: the Walt Disney Treasures will go on.

At least, for another year. This latest “wave” of releases are literally due to popular demand. Your voices were heard. In production for release on December 11th, 2007 are:

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit
Chronological Donald, Volume 3
Disneyland: Stories, Secrets, and Magic

Leonard Maltin is back as host and producer. Each volume is a limited edition. Chronological Donald, Volume 3 features Duck cartoons from 1947 onward which, combined with the previously released two volumes, will complete our collection of every one of Donald’s classic short films.

Disneyland: Secrets, Stories and Magic is a “comprehensive look at the “Happiest Place on Earth.â€? The centerpiece is a new documentary with archival footage, including Walt’s own words, as well as new interviews, that reveal the secrets behind one of the world’s most famous destinations.

The big prize in this group is the volume devoted to Oswald The Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first animated star. Silent shorts made from 1926 to 1927 are revitalized with brand-new musical scores. This collection will also include Leslie Iwerks documentary about her grandfather Ub, The Hand Behind The Mouse.

More information on these sets will be posted here in the future. Click to read the official press release.
