So. For those looking to upgrade Aladdin from ADigitalMan’s restoration, I noticed yesterday that someone is sharing a theatrical DTS audio track that can be synced to the Blu-ray’s video.
That was news to me. I suppose I should update the first post with details of that.
But here is my concern: I have no idea what the quality of the BD’s audio track is, if the mix is good, the source of the theatrical bits (besides “original motion picture soundtrack”, which doesn’t explain where a possible change to the “Good kitty” line came from), or the fact that the whole thing has to have been re-encoded to DTS if edits were made.
Yeah. Anyone know anything about what I apparently don’t know what I’m talking about?
Edit: And another question. I see the UHD disc and Signature BD have a new AR of 1.66:1. Blu-ray.com claims it opens up the borders and presents the ‘intended’ aspect ratio, but IMDb says that’s the negative’s ratio, but the intended is 1.85:1, which would make the Diamond Edition the preferred video source.
