Disney To Fix “The Simpsons” Aspect Ratio Problem On Disney+

Following the launch of Disney+, many users have been complaining about the aspect ratio of the early seasons of the 20th Century Fox smash hit series, The Simpsons.  Which has been edited to fit a HD widescreen TV, by zooming in and cutting off some of the edges.  This has resulted in many visual jokes being lost, as the artists used the whole space to tell additional jokes.

Disney has heard the complaints and will be fixing the problem in early 2020, in a statement, a spokesperson said:

We presented “The Simpsons” in 16:9 aspect ratio at launch in order to guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons. Over time, Disney+ will roll out new features and additional viewing options. As part of this, in early 2020, Disney+ will make the first 19 seasons (and some episodes from Season 20) of “The Simpsons” available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio, giving subscribers a choice of how they prefer to view the popular series.

Before the Simpsons was pulled from the FX & The Simpsons World apps, users had the option of choosing which format they wanted.  It’s good to see Disney making changes to fix this option and listening to its audience.
