Cinderella (Disney Special Platinum Edition)

General Information:

Media Type: Home Video
Type: DVD - Platinum Edition
Release Date: 2005-10-04

Geek's Thoughts: This 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD follows the same format as previous releases in this category, with Disc 1 containing the restored movie and a couple extras and Disc 2 containing an assortment of bonus material. Overall I thought this was a really well done set. The movie looks and sounds great and the bonus material is really interesting to go through with a good variety of things to see and listen to.

I was really suprised that a good portion of the bonus material did not deal directly with the film. It did use Cinerella as reference and the framing but the point and purpose seemed off on a tangent slightly. I was really interested in these extras, but found it sort of weird. For example on Disc 1 there is a piece by ESPN on Cinerella story teams that lasts for over 30 minutes. On Disc 2 there is a piece on the Nine Old Men that lasts for over 20 and one on Mary Blair for 15 minutes. I found these extremely interesting and probably my favorite pieces on the disc, but reflecting on them something seemed weird. They all go with the central theme so it works though.

I was also a bit disappointed in the Trailers/Sneak Peeks. There was a Cars one, but same trailer that has been out for a while, nothing new. Also several sequel DVDs which grind on my nerves. There will be a couple Platinum Edition releases in the coming year (Little Mermaid and Lady & The Tramp). Also there was a princess commercial for Walt Disney World. I was really suprised to see nothing for Disneylands 50th.
