"The Rocketeer" 20th Anniversary Screening

Okay, so I was just getting ready to rip Disney for not acknowledging the 20th Anniversary of "The Rocketeer" when I read this online...

‘The Rocketeer’ returns to El Capitan with cast and crew'

Hero Complex just posted an article outlining D23's plans to screen the film at the El Capitan theater followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew.
The 20th anniversary of Disney’s serial-spirited adventure ”The Rocketeer” will be celebrated June 21 with a special screening and an exhibit of props and costumes, as well as a cast and creator reunion panel that will be moderated by filmmaker Kevin Smith. The entire program is being staged by D23, the paid-membership club that offers deeper, prestige access and archival-minded events to Disney fans.

You can read the entire article HERE.

Of course I still think they are missing a great opportunity to release a Special Edition DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack of this long dormant movie. Perhaps, as I have speculated in the past, they will release it on Blu-ray when they release "Captain America: The First Avenger" on dvd.
