Star Wars

The Lion King (October 26, 1999)

Had The Lion King been re-released on DVD in 1999 for its 15th anniversary, this is what I think it should've looked like:

So Dear to My Heart ​(June 5, 2001)

Sodeartomyheart 2001

If this Gold Classic Collection DVD had been released on time, it probably would have been the last 2nd generation Walt Disney Home Video title, after The Emperor's New Groove.
