Why does this Blu-ray not include a slipcase?

Seems odd when both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty both include one.

Hm, the same with Dumbo! It's disappointing since I'd like to have all of these Disney BDs in the same fashion.

Slip-covers are only produced during the initial release of the film. There is no set time frame, but from observation in store, slipcovers tend to disappear from stock around a month after release.

To ensure getting one, simply pre-order the film.

i have never understood why when money is neeeded tro be saved and also resources of planet slip cases are produced in first place

what on earth is point of them all 200 or more slip cases ihave ever han end up in my incinerator ok mayve not good for environment but5 i was not the one who produced them in first place

i am impatient so as soon as i buy a dvd or b ray in a shop by time i have got out of the door of shop plastic is ripped off slip case pulled apart and firstr bin i see in it all goes the burning of slip cases is for those i get from online orders

i want blu ray expecially to at edge of technology i want disney and others to conecntrate on new featurees and extras its why i like there cinbe explore type things on some b lrays

i would rather all b ray manufacturers concentrated on whats on the b ray and not a piece of cardboard that as far as i know most people chuck away

That is such a waste. Blu-Ray packaging is ugly and tacky and slipcases and steelbooks are the only way to make them look decent!
