Walt Disney Treasures Wave VIII Three new two-disc sets, hosted by Leonard Maltin: "Destino," "Dr Syn, Alias the Scarecrow" and "Chronological Donald, Volume 4." Each limited edition, individually numbered volume includes an authenticity certificate, exclusive lithograph and comes in a unique, collectible tin.

  • "Destino" began in 1946 as a collaboration between Walt Disney and the famed surrealist painter Salvador Dali. A first-hand example of Disney's interest in avant garde and experimental work in animation, "Destino" was to be awash with Dali's iconic melting clocks, marching ants and floating eyeballs. However, "Destino" was never completed. In 2003 it was rediscovered by Walt's nephew, Roy E. Disney, who took on the challenge of bringing the creation to fruition. In addition to the completed "Destino", this Walt Disney Treasure also includes an all-new feature-length documentary that examines the surprising partnership between Dali and Disney plus two new featurettes: "The Disney That Almost Was," an examination of the studio's unfinished projects; and "Encounters With Walt," which addresses the surprisingly diverse group of celebrities and artists who were attracted to Walt Disney's early work.
  • "Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow," which first aired as three separate episodes on Disney's weekly TV show under the title "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh," was edited for theatrical releases in England and the U.S. This set includes all three of the original TV episodes plus the theatrical version of the film that was released in England.
  • Disney fans will delight in "Chronological Donald, Volume 4," which includes 31 classic shorts starring Donald Duck. Each of these meticulously animated adventures was created between 1951 and 1961 and has rarely been seen. All of Donald's CinemaScope shorts will be presented in their original widescreen aspect ratio for the first time on video. (Disney).
