Was it censorship for Disney to lock this movie in the Disney Vault never to be released again? Fore shame Disney. You denied a great classic movie to future generations by caving in to interest group pressures.

Nope it's not censorship to discontinue products. I can't get Roger Ramjet on Netflix. Is that censorship?

I'm pretty sure I'm being discriminated against by them not selling Dr Syn: Alias the Scarecrow anymore too.

I think you are absolutely right. This was a very happy movie and only showed people, whatever color, that loved and cared for each other (at least that's what I remember from so long ago). Some of the characters, and the music still survives at Disney World at one of the rides, but not ALL of the characters. I think they should re-release it, even if it's for a one-day release.

Self censorship is still censorship. Legal or not!

Just a question... You asked *if* it was censorship, and before getting an answer, you jumped to that conclusion and criticized them for censorship.

So is it? If you knew so, why did you ask? Or did you just assume?

It's not really censorship since Disney made the movie and can sell it or not. That said, it is/was a great movie that conveyed positive messages (much like Aesop's Fables does). I'd certainly buy it if it were re-released. But I doubt it ever will be.

I read somewhere recently that Disney has allowed the Uncle Remus museum to sell bootleg copies. I think it's somewhere in Georgia.

I got my hands on a copy. You can find it. I thought it was going to be a lot worse than it was.

Disney will release it when the monetary gain is higher than the cost of fielding all the complaints they will get. If they do release it, it will be an edited version with the "tar baby" scene removed.

Japanese pressings of the Disney DVD (still English) are readily available. The Japanese have no problem with the movie because, frankly, all Americans are inferior, no matter the color. :-)

Disney has a long standing practice of making their "classic" films available on DVD for only a limited amount of time. It does this so that it can charge a higher price. Disney will make this available again when it thinks it makes the most sense economically.

If you want a copy of Song of the South on DVD, you can buy a copy right now on Amazon:

The bootleg copies out there have been recopied so many times they look awful. I know, I bought one. Not at all clear and sharp.

It's better to pretend our country's history never happened. Unless, of course, when it is convenient...affirmative action, reparations, etc.

The versions available on that listing are European PAL VHS formatted for European VCR's. They sell for 99.00. The DVDs out right now are bootleg copies.

It's not the same.

Did Disney ever release DVD copies?

Posted on Dec 15, 2012 11:32:36 PM PST
No. ALL DVD's are bootleg copies.

That's what I bought on EBay and it was terrible. All washed out, unclear and distorted sound.

I bought this version and it is a decent transfer. Song of the South
