    Here is the response I got from fox:
    ----------------------------------------------------
    We are indeed doing Star Wars Phantom Menace in in full aspect ratio of 2.39 :1 ( 21.5x9) on DTV (letterboxed) and 480p.
    Thanks for writing

    Dear Sirs,
    I would like to know if you are planning to show Star Wars The Phantom
    Menace on your DTV channel. Is it possible for you to broadcast at least
    480p in 16x9 mode?
    I would like to see the movie in full 16x9 widescreen (with the correct
    2.35:1 aspect ratio - letterboxed of course) image if your equipment can
    handle it.
    Thanks for your time.

    As far as I can tell, it will definitely be 480P. However, I cannot tell for sure if it will fill the entire 16x9 widescreen or if it will be letterboxed in 4:3 mode.
    Hoping for the best...
