Beauty and the Beast, Bambi headed back to Disney Vault

Fans of Disney’s legendary animated films Beauty and the Beast and Bambi have one final weekend to purchase Blu-Ray/DVD copies for their collections before both become unavailable for an indefinite period of time. As of April 30, production will cease on the current “Diamond Edition” combo packs of both films.

They are the latest casualties of the infamous “Disney Vault,” that imaginary place where the studio’s titles go for periods, presumably so that demand for them will remain strong. Those who want to acquire them when they’re away either have to find a rental copy, or buy a pricey used copy online. It’s a dumb institution, but this is the way things are.

Below are links to purchase copies at while they’re still available. A percentage of your purchase will go back to Critic Speak and will help us grow in the future.
