    I posted this in another forum, but here is the body of the text I posted. This is just FYI for those still worried about this wonderful looking discAtreyu's horse still gets pulled into the swamp...so rest easy.
    The transfer on this disc is awesome. For a movie this old this is stunning work. Beautiful cinematography, great movie, and WIDESCREEN to boot!!!
    Sound was okay...just Dolby 2.0. Nothing too flashy, but good nonetheless. Extras a very lacking, as this film just begs for a special edition. Guess they could only fit so much on a single layer so they could put the pan and scan shit on the other side.
    Overall a very beautiful DVD, and a must buy for a great family film. Sorry I dont have another transfer to compare it to, as it has been about ten years since I have seen the film, was too caught up in the movie to really nitpick the transfer. Even though some grain and scratches were apparent, mainly on matte effect shots.
    I would give the picture quality on this a 4 out of 5. Great to look at, but nothing so stunning as to drool over.

    Did I miss something? There was a rumor about Warner censoring the horse drowning scene? Could you please explain. Thanks. What in the hell is with Warner lately? Not only were they considering releasing Neverending Story in Pan and Scan only, but they were going to self censor? Jeessshhhh!!!!

    It had been more than ten years since I had seen the film since before I watched the DVD last night, so I dont remember much. The horse scene didnt seem censored to me...hopefully a Neverending Story fanatic can see the dsic and enlighten us all.
    And pan and scan is on the disc. It is a flipper. OAR is on the other.

    Cast and Crew, text screens describing the characters and effects, and a trailer....that is it.
    Unless the fact that WB put a Widescreen version in there is an extra feature?

    This is excellent, excellent news. "The Neverending Story" is one of those films that I've been waiting for since I got my DVD player in '97, and now that it's finally here, I could not be more happy. I'll finally be able to see a proper version of one of my favorite films for the first time. I could not care less about a 5.1 remix, and the lack of extras doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the film. Since we finally know that the disc is in the proper widescreen aspect ratio, I'm ecstatic! I can't wait for next Tuesday.
    On a related subject, how did this rumor of the removal of Artax (Atreyu's horse)'s death come about? The first I heard of it was a brief mention by another forum member who said he'd heard such a rumor. Has anyone heard it from anywhere else? It doesn't seem like the sort of thing Warner would do, anyway. Yeah, they've released new edits of films like "Superman" and "The Exorcist," but they've never gone back to a film and snuck in a snip or two for "politically correct" reasons like Disney tends to do.
