If you examine the cover a little, you'll notice that it does not say Disney anywhere on it. I doubt that Disney would ever release anything and not put their iconic logo somewhere on it. After noticing this, you realize that "Special Animation" and the Academy Awards also stick out as being a little odd. When you look at the back cover, it's very plain looking with fonts that seem out of place. I pulled the cover art out of the sleeve to examine it. It seems to be on the right type of paper. The print quality isn't bad, but seems a little fuzzy in some areas.
The next thing I noticed was the plastic case itself. It is unlike any legit DVD I've ever bought. It's not bad quality, but it more closely resembles replacement cases (of which I've seen a few of). Opening the case, there is no inserts or anything. Just one lonely disc. The disc artwork also sticks out as being odd. It is very plain looking, and again, does not have the Disney logo anywhere on it. There's some white text that is obscured by white in the background, which you would never see on a professional product. The disc appears to be pressed, not burned (not that bootlegs can't be on pressed discs).
When I put the DVD in my region 1 DVD player, the movie loaded straight away. No menu, no anti-piracy or warning screens, just the start of the movie. Being a Korean DVD, I wasn't expecting an FBI warning screen, but it's kind of odd to see no legal mumbo jumbo of any kind.
At this point, I was surprised that the movie actually had chapters, 8 of them for what it's worth (I don't know how many chapters are on any of the official region 1 releases). I skipped through the movie to check out the quality. I don't know what the official region 1 DVD looks like, so I cannot compare. This Korean import looks better than a VHS tape, although it is clearly not a restored version of any kind (film grain is present). After skipping through all the chapters, it returned me to a menu. The menu, like everything else, is very plain looking. Looks like something that was made with some simple DVD maker program. It does not look professional at all. The menu options are play, scene selection, and setup (choose language and subtitle options).
I Google searched the UPC number on the back cover and it returned results for "Pinocchio (Korean import)" so I don't know what to make of it. Judging from everything I've seen, this appears to be a bootleg DVD. But if so, why register a UPC? I'm not too familiar with the world of import and bootleg DVDs. I've read that Nintendo's "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" was released as the "Super Comboy" by Hyundai Electronics in South Korea because Japanese products were prohibited in Korea at that time. So for all I know this doesn't have the Disney logo anywhere on it for some similar legal loop hole reason. Does anyone have any insight?
For the price, I'm not really disappointed. I wasn't expecting a restored version of the movie since it didn't say that anywhere in the description. The movie appears to play OK (although I have NOT watched through it from beginning to end yet) and the disc appears to be pressed. This is not a beloved childhood movie of mine, so I'm not broken up by how plain the artwork is. I'm more alarmed that this might be a bootleg movie sold BY Amazon. Still, not a bad price for an out of print Disney movie that's region free and defaults to English without subtitles. I'm not suggesting to avoid, rather, just be aware of what you are buying.
Otherwise this product does as advertised as a very good no-frills restored blu ray and dvd version of an all-time Disney classic.
Beware it is marked for the UK. Who knew??? Now I look to send it back and they say it's too late.
Be careful what you buy. I thought I was buying a regular blueray but apparently not
