    This is a copy of the specs from the Disney web site for OLIVER AND COMPANY:

    Technical Specifications:

    Color

    1.33:1 Aspect Ratio

    Closed Captioned

    English (Dolby 2.0 Surround)

    This was released to laser disc at 1.66:1. Hmmm.

    Hopefully these are not the final specs. Do we know the release date on this one?

    Not again.

    The press release specifically stated 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen. Disney's site is not useful for technical specs upon first announcement of release. The default is 1.33:1. Fear not, like everything else Disney puts out nowadays, it will be in OAR.

    And John to answer your question, the planned release date is May 21. But this one has been delayed so many times, we just have to hope it won't get pushed back YET again.

    This title is put in R2, I saw it at a rental place not long ago. I did check out the specs on a norwegian web site that lists all norwegian DVD releases, and according to the specs listed there the DVD is 1.75:1 and anamorphic. Normally the specs for Disney DVD's are the same.

    And exception being A goofy movie which was released in 4:3 only in R1, but this site liste A goofy movie as 1.85:1 nonanamorphic for R2.

    There is always the danger of being redundant when bringing up something of this nature, and I apologize for for being so. I simply would have thought that Disney's own web site would be the final word in technical specs, elsewise I'd certainly never have posted my thread.

    Don't feel bad, Dick. It's a common mistake -- the reason such things have been posted about several times is because one WOULD think that Disney's site would be correct. And it will be eventually...it just takes a while. Anyway, I was maybe a little too harsh in my post, it's just that when I see threads with a title that looks like "[insert Disney title] is [pan & scan only!/ non-OAR?! / 1.33:1] [?/!]" I immediately know what it is going to be a reference to.

    Hopefully you'll find my site of use, since I'll post the specs from the press release long before Disney gets around to updating and correcting them at their official site.

    No need to apologize Dick, but it seems to be that every time someone finds a future disc listed on the Disney site they make a post questioning the accuracy. In recent times it has occurred with Ruthless People, Three Men and a Baby, actually all of the 4/2 releases.

    Looks like, as Luke said before, that Disney is notoriously bad about accurate information. It is analogous to creating a post every time Amazon has misinformation.
