After checking several online stores, it looks like Richard Williams' The Thief and the Cobbler will be a pan & scan release. The film was shot in Panavision (2.35:1). DeepDiscountDVD, CDUniverse, DVDSoon, and several others list it as full frame. The release date is March 8th and they want $29.99 MSRP. First of all, who is going to pay that much for this film, besides fans? Fans don't want a pan & scan piece of trash, so this release is 100% useless. In fact, I was going to buy this if it was at least widescreen, just so I can see the bulk that Richard Williams directed. So, there's $22 that will probably end up in the pockets of Warner Bros or Criterion. Could Miramax screw up this film any more than they have already? They won't release the uncut workprint, they won't restore the film to its original length, now they won't even show the raped 1995 version in full 2.35:1. Even the laserdisc was widescreen! Thanks for nothing, Miramax. www.geocities.com/eddie_bowers/ has more info on the film and how it was demolished.
