The Disney Legacy Animated Film Collection comprises a staggering 100 animated movies from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Pixar. This comprehensive movie compilation traces the company’s illustrious history of feature films, commencing with the timeless classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs dating back to 1937 and culminating with the latest offering, Elemental, in 2023.
In between, it features iconic titles such as Pinocchio (1940), Bambi (1942), Cinderella (1950), Sleeping Beauty (1959), The Jungle Book (1967), Robin Hood (1973), The Little Mermaid (1989), Beauty and the Beast (1991), The Lion King (1994), Toy Story (1995), Finding Nemo (2003), Wall-E (2008), Winnie the Pooh (2011), and Zootopia (2016).
This remarkable collection is elegantly presented as a three-volume set that unfolds like a captivating storybook. Each page showcases a vivid image and a detailed description of one of the movies, with the discs securely housed in embedded pockets within the pages. For those keen on preserving the collection in pristine condition, digital codes are provided to access the movies without handling the physical discs.
Additionally, the package includes a lithograph from Disney’s upcoming feature, Wish, a certificate of authenticity, and a crystal Mickey Mouse ears hat adorned with the “Disney 100” logo.
However, this exceptional offering comes with a substantial price tag. Disney is asking fans to part with $1,500 for this exclusive collection, translating to $15 per movie, accompanied by exquisite packaging and a plethora of extras.
Initial reactions to Disney’s promotional video for the collection have been mixed. Some potential buyers expressed interest, wishing for 4K resolution options, while others voiced concerns about the lack of new content and the high cost, humorously equating it to the expense of their last Disney vacation.
The Disney Legacy Animated Film Collection is set to be available for purchase starting November 14, with preorders commencing on September 18 through Walmart.com.
