    I know that the special ed. of this DVD (on two discs) comes 1:33.1 on
    disc 1 and 1:78.1 on the other disc,2 , .
    Is the ratio 1:33.1 considered, (for this type of CGI animation,) ..
    full frame or pan and scan ??

    It's a little bit of both. 35mm prints were hard-matted to about 1.66:1. The fullscreen version exposes a little bit more on the top and bottom, but crops the sides.

    I have the old 2 disc edition and was curious if Dreamsworks had done what Pixar does with their DVD releases, add more information to the top and bottom, instead of cropping the movie.

    Shrek is... unfortunately cropped on the sides. If it has more information at the top and bottom I certainly didn't see it.

    Hope that helps...
