Have any of the Movie Club titles gotten a general release afterward? I'm asking specifically with an interest in The Black Hole. Seem to be one of the only people who enjoyed this film as a kid these days.
It appears that the DVD edition of The Story of Robin Hood received a general release in 2009 after its limited Disney Club run in 2006, but that's all I know of. I don't believe any Blu-ray exclusives have received general release so far.

That's what I figured. Thanks Feego.

It's not a "general release" in the manner that you're refering to, but the Cool Runnings blu-ray is now available as a reward at disneymovierewards.com, which you don't need to be a member of DMC to use.

Blu-ray releases are safe, right?

Maybe? I mean, I don't know what would be stopping them from limiting those too.

I've assumed once existing license agreements/print runs are through, they'll all start disappearing from retailers but showing up on the streaming service.

And what about MGM? The article mentioned The Princess Bride. Is that why all those Shout releases went out of print?

Fox probably still has the theatrical rights, as they handled the original release.
