    'Standard' doesn't always mean 'Fullscreen' or 'Pan and Scan'
    The very bottom says 'Standard Version: Preserving the format of the original Television Exhibition'
    so... if its 'original television exhibition' was LBX... maybe it is LBX
    Oh course... THIS IS Warner that we are talking about (and they KNOW what they will get themselves into if it is indeed true [​IMG] )
    HERE'S HOPING FOR THE BEST, we probably won't know for sure till reviews come out... so just relax [​IMG]

    Rob I appreciate your optimism, but in all honesty Warner always says "Enhanced for Widescreen TVs" on their widescreen releases. Always
    Looks like it is the Follow That Bird, family entertainment syndrome.
    I agree with Jacob. *@#$ing Warner...

    Unfortunately, the originally broadcasted aspect ratio was 4:3 full screen unmatted....then they replay the way the art directors want the series seen, in WS on Sundays by putting on the mattes.

    I wont be buying the DVD if it's non-anamorphic WS.

    I like the full-frame version better. If the animators are being told to animate for matted widescreen, they aren't paying very close attention to their orders. [​IMG]

    No need to complain, it is technically the OAR. I am not that big a fan of the show...watched the pilot, and you can definitely tell Paul Dini isn't the one writing.

    When using the term OAR, one is usually referring to the way a film was originally presented upon release. Justice League's debut was in 1:33:1, though granted it is shown in letterbox on Sundays, and the creators prefer it that way.

    Nevertheless, 1:33:1 is still it's OAR. Willy Wonka was never intended to be shown in 1:33:1, whereas Justice League was made specifically for that aspect ratio, per Cartoon Network's request. Would it be cool for Warner to include the option of widescreen for this release? Yes, but I consider it a lower priority to raise a fuss over titles originally intended for 1:33:1 when Warner is butchering titles that were never intended for that ratio. You gotta pick your battles.

    Not sure what everybody is seeing though. I have watched the show on Mondays and Sundays and it has always been in widescreen. I wish somebody would end the confusion on this.
