Love the original, can do without the sequel and not pleased with this set,
This review is from: The Fox and the Hound / The Fox and the Hound Two (Three-Disc 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray / DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging) (Blu-ray)
The original has been transferred beautifully but I'm very disappointed in this Disney release. Other than owning it in HD, fans get nothing new for what is one of the few classic feeling Disney films from this particular era. They couldn't have done a retrospective, a new featurette or had some film critic or Disney employee do a commentary? Why couldn't they have thrown together a Cine-explore. I would understand if Disney released these films again and again all the time but when you aim to only rerelease a film on new format every so many years apart you should really include something new for fans.
I'm also sort of upset as a purist that I have to own the sequel, which I thought might be okay but couldn't even sit through one viewing, but I do understand this is beneficial to others and will suck it up. Still, if you're packaging two movies together to try and maximize sales you could still toss buyers a bone with a new featurette or at least a commentary. They haven't even thrown in any new unseen concept art or relatively cheap material to include. A very unfortunate release for such a classic film, thank God that Dumbo has already been confirmed to have new special features and Cine-Explore.
