Furthermore, this is becoming a standard marketing strategy to get customers to purchase UsefulNotes/BluRay versions of films by largely creating a vanilla edition for the DVD version and having the special features in the blu-ray instead.

** Though interestingly enough, this is actually a repeat in history. Disney previously had the same procedure during the shift from VHS to DVD. DVD releases would get all the nifty extra features while the VHS version was naturally bare-bones.

* The first eight Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon movies that Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo released on DVD came in what was called the Limited Issue collection. The most packed entry, ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', contained nothing more than a partially-colored trailer and some music videos, while fans of the other movies released in this collection would have probably considered themselves lucky if they got so much as an old trailer. The Limited Issue [=DVDs=] featured so few bonus features, Disney tried to pad out the "special features" boxes on the back covers by [[http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/ciu/06/04/2741225b9da0bad526eac010.L.jpg boasting]] that the [=DVDs=] have labels with "full color character artwork." (This boast would become ironic when Disney started using gray and silver DVD labels for most of their movies.) About half of the Limited Issues films were repackaged under the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyGoldClassicCollection, before Disney started gradually giving almost all of them more loaded 2-Disc [=DVDs=], labeled as either a Platinum Edition (for the ones that made the most money in theaters and/or on VHS) or a Special Edition (''Mulan'', which Disney upgraded only to promote its direct-to-video sequel). Eventually, ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' became the only one to remain a Vanilla Edition, since its latest DVD contains the same minuscule number of extras.
