Disney Classics to Get Decorative Framing

Posted: March 6th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Disney Classics to Get Decorative FramingSubmit Comment
Rather than distort the original theatrical image, Walt Disney Studios' classic animated features have historically been tagged with black bars on the sides when played on widescreen TV sets. However, some fans have complained that the bars take away from their viewing experience.

So, starting with "Pinocchio" due March 10th, animator Toby Bluth has created "decorative" bars, dubbed Disney View, which will frame the Blu-ray version. The standard DVD edition will continue to use plain black bars.

"It supports the film, and is at most an accompaniment," said Bluth, who created 16 sets of Disney View bars for "Pinocchio." "There aren't any panels that distract from the film. They are like theatrical set pieces framing the action."

Disney View is expected to be used with the studio's next classic animated Blu-ray release in October, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."

Does anyone think this is a good idea?

I can't imagine this working. 101 Dalmations is just fine to watch and on one of my tvs you can't see the bars.

I'm never aware of the black bars, unless it's my computer and the mouse is visible in one of them.

Hope this decorative framing is an option one can voluntarily choose to turn on or off at will if no, Ill have to go with the DVD release, which would be an awful shame cuz Im an avid supporter of blu ray! But this is definitely one of the worst ideas ever thought!!! Nriq.

But on the dvd the film is in the original format with the black bars.
