The Walt Disney Diamond Editions are a line of DVDs and Blu-rays that began with the Blu-ray release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on October 6, 2009. It is a successor to the Platinum Edition line that is made available on Blu-ray, DVD, 3D, and Digital.



All the Platinum Edition titles are to featured in this range, but they will not necessarily be released in the same chronological order when they were released of the previous line. Aladdin was originally going to be replaced by a 2-movie collection featuring Fantasia and Fantasia 2000; however, these two films were removed from the lineup, and were instead released as a 2-Movie Collection, with Aladdin reinstated into the line.

Disney expects to release all its Diamond titles by 2016. All these movies (except for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi) have been released as Digital Downloads (e.g. iTunes, Disney Digital, Amazon Instant Video).

Alice in Wonderland, Fantasia, and Dumbo were originally supposed to be released on Diamond/Platinum Edition, but due to a presumed schedule mix-up, they were only released on Special Edition. While there is a likelihood they will be released on Diamond Edition, this is not confirmed. (It is also rumored that Alice in Wonderland will come out on Diamond as a tie-in to Through The Looking Glass, which is supposed to be released in May 2016).

Frozen is rumored to become a Diamond title since the film was not released to 3D Blu-Ray in the US.

U.K./U.S. differences

Starting in 2012, some differences in Diamond Editions came into existence between the United States and the United Kingdom. In September 2012, One Hundred and One Dalmatians was released on Blu-Ray in the UK as a "special edition", featuring a static menu and no new special features before it was released as a Diamond Edition in the US on February 10, 2015.

Furthermore, Peter Pan was also released as a non-commemorative Special Edition in the UK in November 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 on February 5, 2013.

Furthermore, Aladdin was released on Blu-Ray in the UK in Spring 2013, while still on hold in the US until October 13, 2015.

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