Disney Treasures - Wave 9

This also just in from Jim:

[Most of us have assumed that this current “wave” of Disney Treasures DVDs will be the last. After all, the first five waves of Treasures were issued in quantities of 125,000 tins per title. Last year, Wave 7, the release was dropped to only 50,000 tins although the Oswald title had 120,000 tins produced. This year, Wave 8, the three releases were only issued in quantities of 39,500 tins each and even prominent sellers like Amazon are already out of copies before Christmas.

However, Disney Movie Rewards members (an official Disney DVD club) recently received in the mail a Zorro lithograph with a flyer that says “Coming soon to DVD as part of the Walt Disney Treasures”. Colorized versions of Disney’s Zorro episodes have already been released to Disney Movie Rewards members but the black and white versions including the hour long episodes and the movies compiled from the half hour episodes have never been released on DVD.

Of course, there has been no official announcement from Disney on future “waves” of the Treasures series.]

If you haven't already seen it, there's a scan of the Zorro flyer on this message board

There's also a quote from Leonard Maltin from his blog scroll to the bottom, that assures us that the series will continue.

I hope this is true; I have been anxious for Disney to release the Zorro series without the colorization and with some interesting extras. Keeping the fingers crossed!
