Song of the South

Disney's 'Song of the South' (Tales of Uncle Remus / Brer Rabbit) will have the 70th anniversary of its release in 2016. Do you believe that Disney should re-release the movie on DVD/Blue-ray/Digital or continue to keep it locked in the vault?

I think they should release it and include a documentary on the dvd that contexts it and examines it from a social/racial perspective.

:clappy: You beat me to this. It's a beautiful movie, when you keep in mind both the time it was made and the time in which it was set.

I love this movie, and I love watching it with my kids. My MIL has it and we have had the most amazing discussions while watching it

I would love to have a copy to watch in its entirety with our kids. They have seen snippets and yes, we've had discussions on context both of the time that it was set in *and* the time it was made. I think it is hard though for them to truly understand the concepts though without seeing it all together.

A documentary as described accompanying it is an excellent idea.

I'm not holding my breath though.

So am I the only one who has never seen or heard of this movie?

Seems like it. It's a famous old Disney movie.
