I have been watching with interest the R1 Wonka uproar and am delighted that fellow OAR enthusiasts succeeded in getting Warner to release a widescreen edition. I picked up my R4 copy in June last year and it is a 1.78 anamorphic PAL transfer. Recently Warner released the P&S NTSC 30th anniversary edition here in Australia. This makes me worried that we will not see a PAL release of the WS anniversary edition. Does anyone know how the new R1 anamorphic edition holds up against the old R4 copy? The extras are very tempting but I would only get another copy if there was an improvement in the film transfer itself. Certainly won't be getting the NTSC full-screen release.
