    VÖ von "Song of the South" möglich?

    Wenn man diesem Bericht hier glauben darf...
    http://www.songofthesouth.net/news/2...-of-the-south/
    ...wird bzw wurde "Song of the South" in 4K gescannt:
    “And it’s not just animation. This project has been used to get 4K scans and new prints to preserve live action classics like Song of the South (no plans to release) and just this year Parent Trap, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Old Yeller, The Absent-Minded Professor and Pollyanna (I encouraged them to start releasing these live action classics to Blu-ray).”
    Es wird zwar angegeben, das keine Veröffentlichung geplant sei, aber so ein Scan weckt schon irgendwie Begehrlichkeiten.

    Was meint ihr, welche Changen bestehen, das Disney diesen Film in den nächsten Jahren veröffentlichen wird?

    AW: VÖ von "Song of the South" möglich?

    Wäre echt toll. Hab von meiner alten VHS ne DVD-R gezogen. Wäre genial, wenn der irgendwie veröffentlicht wird (meinetwegen auch auf DVD). Könnte dann endlich die Kopie entsorgen.

    Ich denke mal dass man eine VÖ ausschließen kann. Schon komisch wenn man bedenkt dass wir Deutschen damals 4 oder 5 verschiedene Videoauflagen bekommen haben.
    Ich weiß sonst nur von dem britischen Tape.
    Haben denn noch weitere Länder ne VÖ bekommen?

    No Song of the South Blu-ray in the Cards
    During the latest annual meeting of Shareholders of The Walt Disney Company, a shareholder asked about a Blu-ray release of Song of the South for its 65th anniversary. Once again, the reply from Disney CEO Robert Iger was that, even though they do consider that movie from time to time, "it wouldn't be the right thing for the company to do" because there are elements in the movie that wouldn't "feel right to a number of people today."

    This 1946 Disney movie has never been released on home video because the studio fears that its portrayal of racial stereotypes could be offensive to part of the public, even when considering the historical context the movie was made in.
    Tja, wird wohl doch nix in den nä. Jahren

    Hier noch ein interessanter Kommentar:
    I was the shareholder that asked the question. And to answer a few comments posted here, Yes, Bob Iger has watched it again recently. I even asked him about an exclusive release like they have with some Disney Exclusives. He said he didn't think it would be right to use company resources to release it whether it was wide or narrowly released due to elements in the film that wouldn't sit right to many people today. Even thought there would be some financial gain from a release and even though it was a generally good film, that sometimes you sacrifice that for what you feel is right and he has had a strong belief that the film shouldn't be released and is something he has discussed with other execs and they agree. So he said to remember as it was and what it was and to not expect a release any time soon, ever.

    Wie soll Disney "diesen Film ruftechnisch verkraften können", wenn der Maus Konzern es bis heute nicht geschafft hat, "Fantasia" unzensiert raus zu bringen? Und bei dem Film geht es nur um wenige Frames, alles rein animiert und auch noch irreal/mystisch verfremded, in einem ARTHOUSE-Film.

    Nenene. Disney ist zu sehr auf den eingebildeten guten Ruf bedacht, als das da auch nur annähernd ein Risiko eingegangen wird.

    Da wird Leonard Maltin noch viel viel Überzeugungsarbeit leisten müssen, ehe es einen Release gibt...

    Hier kann man das aus Post 4 und 5 nochmal genauer lesen und sogar als mp3 anhören:

    Disney CEO: “Don’t Expect to See [Song of the South] Again”
    Disney’s annual shareholder meeting was held this year on March 23rd in Salt Lake City, Utah. Once again, Disney CEO Robert Iger has dismissed the possibility of releasing Song of the South on DVD. Since 2006, shareholders have annually raised the question at every shareholder meeting. In 2006 and 2007, Iger assured shareholders that they were taking another look at the film due to the “numerous requests” they received. By 2008, however, his tone began to change, and by 2010, he was calling the movie “antiquated” and “fairly offensive”. And now, for 2011′s response—shareholder Matthew Hansen was able to squeeze in the meeting’s final Q&A question:

    Hansen: My name is Matthew Hansen; I’m a shareholder here locally. This year is a large anniversary for one of Disney’s classic films. Disney restoration team artistic supervisor Dave Bossert recently said, ‘There’s been a lot of internal discussion about it, and at some point we’re going to do something about it. I don’t know when, but we will. We want people to see it because we realize it’s a big piece of company history and we want to do it the right way.’ With this year being the 65th anniversary of Song of the South, I was wondering when we might see that. [Applause]
    Iger: [laughs] We almost got through the meeting! I thought you were going to say it’s the 60th anniversary of Peter Pan, I was kind of hoping for that. I said last year at our shareholder’s meeting that I had watched Song of the South again and, even though we’ve considered from time to time bringing it back, I didn’t think it was the right thing for the company to do. It was made in a different time. Admittedly you could use that as context, but I just felt that there are elements to the film, while it was a relatively good film, that wouldn’t necessarily sit right or feel right to a number of people today. And, just felt that it wouldn’t be in the best interest of our shareholders to bring it back, even though there would be some financial gain. Sometimes you make sacrifices on the financial side to do what you believe is right and that’s an example of that.
    Hansen: Would it be possible to have, kind of how they have the Disney exclusive videos that aren’t available in stores?
    Iger: I just don’t feel that it’s right for us to use company resources to make it available, whether it’s wide or whether it’s narrow… narrowly available. It’s a strong belief that I have— consulted with other top executives of the company. They all agreed, and I think, just remember it as it was, and don’t expect to see it again for… at least for awhile, if ever.
    So there you have it, folks. An audio archive of the shareholder meeting is available here: http://a.media.global.go.com/investo...y_2011_ASM.mp3

    Es ist aber auch eine Schande, das man einen Film nicht (mehr) veröffentlicht für den James Baskett mal einen Oscar gewonnen hat.
