Nor that it matters in the slightest but, yes, looks like it'll be the same disc we got three years ago when Disney released a handful of Amarays w/ slipcover art matching case art:-
View attachment 400314 / View attachment 400316View attachment 400315

Seems like we'll have to wait a while longer for a DOWN UNDER standalone Blu-ray . . . we will get one soon though - in the same way that we got standalone VHS and DVD standalones:-

-----------------------------------
Anyway, looking forward to this one in particular . . . hoping that the three characters, the tree trunk and the grass is embossed . . . potentially one of the best in the Zavvi Disney steelbook collection.
ah yes I forgot the UK got a double pack as well (I imported the USA one so never bothered with the UK one, hence why I forgot about its existance)

still, makes having the first movie steel almost pointless, or at least having an open one of the first when we can just have this steelbook open with both movies

still dont like how we got both movies on one disc. Feels cheap(even though lazy arse me loves not having to change the disc...lol)

Thanks for the live photos, it turned out really nice, the rear and inside art is great.
Fantasia 2000 is another sequel.

My copy just arrived but the other one the Great Mouse Detective didn't even though I got a dispatch notice for both them at the same time!. Weird.......

Same here. In fact, I even received a dispatch notice for the Prince of Darkness steel a whole day before Rescuers and Basil, and yet this still arrived first lol.

Wow, picture disc and everything!!

been a while since I saw a UK Disney reelase (inc Marvel) that wasnt plain blue with silver text.

nice pic's.

Am assuming mine has turned up (cant open it yet as family member stole it for an xmas gift - gave me the money back mind. lol) considering many of you are still awaiting Basil.
Not sure if I should open and check it over before giving it back to Santa...

Beautiful steel but my bossing is misaligned so I’ll send it back for a replacement

I think it looks kinda cheap next to Basil, down largely due to the poor choice in artwork, it just doesn't look as high quality up against the Great Mouse Detective, and that's such a shame as if they'd used the artwork on the disk itself or the Uncropped version of the back artwork I think it could have looked just as nice. As is Basil looks deluxe whilst Rescuers looks a bit cheap by comparison.

Yes, great to see that these delightful new/upcoming releases - MEET THE ROBINSONS, ATLANTIS, CHICKEN LITTLE, BOLT, THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER and BASIL, THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE) are proving to be of the same high standard as most of the earlier ones.

Received this is the mail today, which was a very nice surprise, mostly because I hadn't bought it :LOL:
Nice embossing, though the embossed interruption is a little odd. I like they embossed "Disney" and "The" on this one even though they hadn't on the first one.
