Diamond edition

Walt Disney Diamond Editions is a line of DVDs and Blu-rays that began with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on October 6, 2009. Disney began re-issuing Platinum Edition titles under a new Diamond Edition range on Blu-ray, 2-disc DVD sets, 3D, and Digital.



All the Platinum Edition titles will feature in this range, but they are not necessarily released in the same chronological order when they were released of the latter. Aladdin was originally going to be replaced by Fantasia & Fantasia 2000; however, these two films were removed from the line up, and were instead released as a 2-Movie Collection, with Aladdin being brought back as a Diamond Edition.

Disney expects to release all its Diamond titles by 2016, which is due to the first-generation, non-Disney Vault line of animated feature-length films that are titled the Walt Disney Special Editions line. These movies (expect for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi) are released as Digital Downloads (e.g. iTunes, Disney Digital, Amazon Instant Video).

According to recent Disney Animated Disney Movie Profits, other movies may be included in the Diamond line or put in the presigious Disney Vault, such as Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo, and even Tangled.

U.K./U.S. differences

Starting in 2012, some differences in Diamond Editions have come into existence between the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. In Fall 2012, One Hundred and One Dalmatians was released on Blu-Ray in the UK and Australia as a "special edition", featuring a static menu and no new special features. Some confusion arose over any upcoming American release of this title, since it apparently is still scheduled for an American release as a Diamond Edition.

Furthermore, Peter Pan was also released as a non-commemorative Special Edition in the UK on November 5, 2012. This edition featured no DisneyView to cover the black bars at the sides of the screen, a static menu and only a few bonus features, while the movie was still released as Diamond Edition in the US and Australia in early 2013.

Furthermore, Aladdin was released on Blu-Ray in the UK and Australia in Spring 2013, while still on hold in the US until at least 2015. It is unclear as to whether the new Aladdin release will be a Diamond Edition or not, as this seems to differ per country. There were also vague rumors of this new release being delayed with one them possibly being that Disney wants to release Aladdin on Blu-ray after the Broadway musical opens.

To add to the confusion, The Jungle Book and The Little Mermaid were both confirmed as Fall 2013 Diamond Editions in the UK and Australia, while The Jungle Book was kept on hold in the US until February 11, 2014.
