Fox has made amends for the Star Wars anamorphic widescreen fiasco. Sort of.
In an article from The Digital Bits, it seems that Fox France has confirmed that the original versions of A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi are in fact going to be released there in the widescreen anamorphic format.
We received this information on 7/13 the day after this story originally went live.
According to the The Bits, "It turns out Fox France was wrong. Someone in marketing over there apparently still doesn't know what anamorphic means. The special edition versions of the films on Disc One of each set are anamorphic, but the original theatrical editions on Disc Two of each are definitely NOT anamorphic. They're just letterboxed widescreen as we expected. Fox France has apparently apologized for the confusion."
In addition to this, Warner Bros. has some interesting releases in the works.
A 50th Anniversary release of Forbidden Planet is currently being prepared. Sadly, there are no details yet but the release is forthcoming.
Lastly, Krypto the Superdog, Volume 2 will be making it's way to DVD on October 24.
