I'm sorry, but cropping is ridiculous,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Jungle Book (Two-Disc 40th Anniversary Platinum Edition) (DVD)
I had anticipated this for many months, and am now disappointed. I noted the cropping to make it "widescreen" -- even though I understand that it was "masked" to be shown that way in theatres, as many theatres did. Both versions should be included -- is Disney ignoring today's media trends?
I went and bought the old 1999 version from a used seller instead, and I recommend that if you're a true Disney animation fan, then you do the same. Cutting off characters' heads for the sake of our HD TVs is not an improvement, and this isn't the 1970s or 1980s anymore. We have choices now, and Disney should be following suit.
