April 26th 2009

Horace Ward and Woodsy Lady have both kindly informed me that Walt Disney’s Story of Robin Hood will be available to purchase on DVD across the USA and Canada from 26th April 2009. Previously it was only available through the Disney Club.

This is taken from the Disney website that is advertising the release of the DVD at : http://disneydvd.disney.go.com/the-story-of-robin-hood.html#/?page=Rescue


“At last...the best of Sunday night TV is back! It's the legendary TV show popular with audiences for 29 years. The longest-running prime-time series in television history (1954-1983). The winner of numerous awards, including seven Emmys. It's THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISNEY! This rousing tale of England's renowned rebel to the rich and patriot to the poor is brimming with Disney's storytelling magic. The whole family will love going bow-to-bow alongside Robin, Friar Tuck, Little John, and Maid Marian in this classic adventure full of gallantry, romance and adventure!”

The Disney website contains two clips from the movie and also five stills.

Sadly the DVD has no extras and is
not available worldwide.

Great News. I had hoped there might have been the film trailer and other items but maybe not. What an astonishingly far sighted genius was Walt Disney. Films are released from more than 70 years ago and still do incredibly well in DVD sales. This film is a mere 57 years old and they must feel it has a re release potential in terms of sales. They are not usually wrong. Wherever you travel in the world it seems that the Disney films are on sale. Thank you for the information. Another pleasant surprise

Yes Neil it's good news. The DVD is getting closer to home for us, but not quite close enough!

Lets hope that when it gets its UK release we get ALL the extras!!!!

Clement of the Glen,

Wow! Maybe I'll be able to get it and see what it's like!

Thanks for broadcasting such an opportunity, Clement!!!

Smiles from Sherwood,

If it's the same as the Disney Club edition, then there won't even any chapter stops! I could do a better job myself... and now that I have two excellent recordings from separate UK Channel 4 broadcasts, with different commercial breaks, I am now able to blend the two seamlessly! Incidentally, watch out for the aeroplane (it's a machine that flies, like an arrow, only much bigger, and with wings, like an eagle) during the punishment scene in "Nottingham Square"...
