The Walt Disney Legacy Collection is a Blu-ray collection archiving most of the animated shorts, rare films, live-action works, and television material released and produced by Walt Disney during his lifetime. It serves as a successor to the Walt Disney Treasures DVD sets produced in the 2000s, and is largely similar to that series.

Marketing

Unlike the Treasures series, the Legacy Collection will be backed up with a larger, yet limited marketing campaign (mostly through D23). The series will be available in only selected retailers, yet will be available earlier for members of D23.

As opposed to having a separate DVD version available, the bulk of the series will be sold on Blu-ray only and will be available in two ways: either a plain SteelBook with the booklet, lithographs, posters, and smaller extra materials intact, or a "collector's edition" box with not only those things, but material that would not fit into the regular version, like replicas of vintage "Disneyana". For DVD owners or people who have missed out on the Treasures series, the series will be reintroduced both in gift packs and individually, the latter now coming inside of an O-sleeve instead of a tin.

Companion booklets

Each Legacy Collection set comes with a highly informative booklet, which serves as a guide to the content on each disc in three ways: for animation sets, the director, production number, release date (if available), sypnosis, and some liner notes for each short are listed; for films, the same factors apply, but also with many more behind-the-scenes notes and photos than the shorts; and for television series, the original broadcast date, sypnosis, notes, and (in many cases) chapters of each episode are listed.
