Are you sure about Snow Dogs? It just came out in the theatre a month or two ago and it is still playing in our big stadium (read expensive) theatre here and doing quite well. I am surprised it would be out on DVD so soon if it is still in the Theatre.
FYI for everyone - www.disney.com has a listing of all releases for the next year on their site.
Thanks for the post Druanna - I am really excited about Monsters, Inc. Sept. is too far away. The 2 disc DVD sounds like it is going to be great!

I also frequent TDB, and Know that they are very strict to valid information, hoever as far as Buena Vista's OFFICIAL release dates announced, only Monster's Inc. has been released. The other dates are most likely just PROJECTED street dates at this point. But I appreciate the run-down of what we can expect in 2002 on Disney DVD.
And toominie, studios now are releasing thier movies on DVD even soon if the movie was not a huge sucess. For example, ALI will be on DVD by April, while Lord of the Rings will not be on DVD until August...
