I'm getting increasingly annoyed with Disney UK and their lack of thought and care with their Blu-ray/DVD releases, and this is another classic example of how cheap they're getting.

I really enjoyed this film in the cinema and was really looking forward to seeing Pooh in HD, but alas Disney UK see nothing to gain from it. A double-pack with the 1977 film and this one would have been perfect, especially since the original is now OOP.

Why can't this bee given an HD release?:-(

Completely agree. Didn't catch it in the cinema so was hoping to wait for a Blu-Ray release, seeing you can get HD trailers off the internet. So the country that gave the world Winnie the Pooh is again treated second rate by the Disney brigade. Its bad enough with their vault system but to just decide to not release this on Blu-Ray in the UK is ridiculous. And you just know, as its Disney, that the international blu-rays won't be "any region" encoded....... And they wonder why Pixar Studios always out performs the more traditional in-house Disney productions these days.

You can now pre-order it from Amazon.com in the US as a so called 'Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy' Combo. Although there is no concrete release date yet, it is rumoured to be any time before Christmas. And, by the way, all newer Disney releases in the US are region coded A/B/C, they have already started with this in 2010, not only for the older titles also the new blockbusters like 'Tangled' etc. are region free (or precisely A/B/C).

Importing is all very well and good for certain films, but for something like this I shouldn't need to be importing it, as HD trailers and promotions for it have been widely available in the UK, as Nicholas Gray said.

This is one of those releases where they're releasing it for sake of it as it came out in cinemas. Disney UK don't care about this release one bit, even the cover is the sames as the poster art. If they really did care they would release it on Blu-ray, and even looking at the spine of the DVD there's no 'classic number' on it as there has been with previous Blu-ray/DVD releases, so I don't even think they're aware this is another animated classic from the same line as films like The Lion King or Tangled.

So tbh much as I would love it in HD, I am not going to be importng something where theoretically I shouldn't have to.

i seem to be one of the few who caught this at the cinema and me and my daughter loved it.
but we saw it 2 days after it was released and where the only ones in the cinema-the screen holds 400
i was looking forward to getting this on bluray but no such luck
it only took £176,000 in this country but did well in the us,so they get the decent release
it deserves to be up there with the classics its a lot better then some of the other modern releases

The reason why this movie doesn't have a "classic number" on it is because for marketing purposes, it is excised from the list in the UK, and Wreck-It Ralph [DVD] is the 51st film instead.
