The Walt Disney Company on Thursday denied a report that it plans to release Badder Santa: The Unrated Version on high-definition video in November. The report had appeared on several websites that track DVD releases. (HighDefDigest.com said that the report emanated from "a retail announcement.") Coming in the wake of Disney's announcement that it plans to abandon its "Buena Vista" banner corporate-wide, the report generated particular interest since it appeared that an unrated movie would be distributed under the Disney name for the first time. However, a Disney spokesman said Thursday that no "new official name" for the company's video distribution unit had been announced and that for the time being it will remain Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
