DinseyWiki (which has been reliable for these things in the past) has the following listed:

8/11/15

A Goofy Movie (1995) / An Extremely Goofy Movie (2000): 2-Movie Collection
Make Mine Music (1946) / Melody Time (1948): 2-Movie Collection
Saludos Amigos (1942) / The Three Caballeros (1944): 2-Movie Collection

9/8/15

The Black Cauldron (1985): 30th Anniversary Edition

The individual pages for Saludos Amigos and Make Mine Music specifically state the Blu-ray releases are uncensored, too.

Also listed there, but confirmed via formal press release:

10/13/15

Aladdin (1992): Diamond Edition


If all correct, this wraps up all feature animation catalog from the formal "Animated Classics" line on Blu-ray in the US, though a few other animated features not formally part of this list (Victory Through Air Power (1943), The Brave Little Toaster (1987)) or live action films with animated sequences (So Dear to My Heart (1948), and the in-video-purgatory Song of the South (1946)) still remain unreleased.

I wonder if Make Mine Music and Melody Time will also be uncensored. On the current U.S. DVDs, all shots of Pecos Bill smoking are edited out of MT, and the entire "Martins and the Coys" segment is missing from MMM due to gunplay (I believe the Region 2 discs are uncensored).

Pecos Bill is actually from Saludos Amigos.

In any case, to answer your question, the individual pages on DisneyWiki for those films claim that they'll be unedited.

Sorry, I missed that you said Make Mine Music would be uncensored in your original post.

I'm sorry that I had completely forgot three of these films had alterations rather than just two.

For what it's worth (possibly very little), DisneyWiki is now listing these titles as DMC Exclusives.

Also of interest is this listing for Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection, which used to state 8/18/15. This is apparently a compilation of the recent shorts, and supposedly includes:

-John Henry
-Lorenzo
-The Little Matchgirl
-How To Hookup Your Home Theater
-Tick Tock Tale
-Prep and Landing: Operation Santa
-The Ballad of Nessie
-Tangled Ever After
-Paperman
-Get A Horse
-Feast
-Frozen Fever

It seems the DMC exclusives in July are going to be:

Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (1977)
Herbie Goes Bananas (1980)


To complete your HD Herbie saga collection, of course.

EDIT: Release date appears to be 6/30

Did any of these ever get released? They don't appear available on the Canadian DMC site.

Nope. More rumors popped up again recently, but Disney is such an enigma right now that I want to see an official statement first.

Disney needs to stop dicking around with Black Cauldron and issue a Blu of its original cut (which still exists-it was the locked original camera negative)

I really hate this DCM BS. I would've easily bought a few films had it not been for this idiotic 90s CDs or 70s LP scheme. I never thought I'd actually prefer Disney to adopt a TT or WAC method to this nonsense. Oh well, perhaps I can find someone who will want to pad out the other however many I have to buy, just so I can get 3 DCM exclusives.

There's no chance of these becoming generally available? Saludos Amigos / Three Caballeros is the one title that I'd be most sad to live without. I'm too afraid to actually join the stupid DCM club, since I'd only ever go that route once, and I know something else will be announced in the future that I'll want. There's no way to win with this shit.

The Absent-Minded Professor (1961) was released via the DMC in early March.

And the next DMC exclusive is....

Operation Dumbo Drop (1995)


I did not see that coming. Good news for fans, I guess, as the DVD was 1.33:1 only.
