I wanted to give everybody an update on a couple issues related to getting Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island released on widescreen DVD. Disney has received more than 1200 phone calls related to getting these discs released on widescreen since promotion across the Web broke earlier this week. In addition to Muppet Central, other DVD sites such as www.dvdfile.com and www.thedigitalbits.com and multiple DVD forums have been promoting the campaign to get these released in widescreen as well. The calls ARE making a difference, and this campaign is gaining momentum. I've also been told "unofficially" from a different source that Disney does indeed have an anamorphic 16:9 transfer of Muppet Treasure Island already completed! It's been done for awhile. They're just trying to stay with the "family line" of full screen discs UNLESS they continue to receive a lot of calls about this. So keep on calling and writing. I was shocked to hear that they already have the widescreen transfer done but are not wanting to release it. There is a short-window to get this done from a time perspective though. Thought everybody would find this info helpful in light of the discussions.
