    6 / 10
    Although the box specifies a "Fullscreen 1.33:1" ratio, this DVD is a WIDESCREEN NON-ANAMORPHIC 2.35 presentation.

    Despite its being non-anamorphic, the video is of good quality with accurate black levels, with just one noticeable artefact during the "Midnight Snack" scene. The landscape shots are colorful and beautifuly represented.

    The Dolby Digital Surround 2.0 sound is impressive with a great surround sense throughout the movie.

    The bonus features are non-existant (Disney DVDs are wonderful that way), with still a nice picture menu.

    The overall rating is refflecting the non-anamorphic transfer.
