When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. This includes the pouncing lesson scene. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the original scrolling end credits sequence and it contains the different end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version. See more »
This is a film that can entertain anyone young or old, I usually don't care for animated movies but this film is the real deal, this is one of disney's best animated movies. The animation is top notch and flawless. This film also features superb work from the vocal cast James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg. This is a standout.
