I have had Willy Wonka on preorder from Amazon.com for several weeks. I have not canceled it yet even though I am considering it. The lack of widescreen on the dvd must have generated such a rash of preorder cancellations that Amazon took steps to email people who have preordered this title from them. This is the first time I have ever heard of them doing this. It probably has something to do with them listing it on their site as widescreen, etc. Release the widescreen!! Here is the email I received: Greetings from Amazon.com! Thank you for your recent order of the much-anticipated 30th Anniversary DVD Edition of "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory." We are taking this opportunity to inform you of a change in the visual specification for this DVD. When Warner Home Video initially announced that this title was available for pre-order, it was anticipated that "Willy Wonka" would be in both the Widescreen anamorphic and Full Screen (Standard) formats. We have recently learned, however, that this product will now only be presented as Full Screen (Standard). Our catalog has been updated. We of course apologize for this discrepancy and for any resultant disappointment. If you preferred the "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory 30th Anniversary Edition" DVD in the Widescreen anamorphic presentation, we would of course understand if you wish to cancel this item from your order. You can do this quickly and conveniently at any time by clicking the "Your Account" link at the top of our web site, or by visiting this URL: http://www.amazon.com/youraccount If, on the other hand, you are happy to receive the Full Screen standard edition, we will ship it to you as soon as it becomes available. Thank you for shopping at Amazon.com!
