Hey, all.

Not-so-new to the site, but my first time answering on posts. Just wanted to let you guys know that I’ve not only found the release through Google (someone mentioned a citrus), but I’ve also completed acquisition.

I am also looking for this but no Luck. Would you please give me some more info about how I can find it? Citrus, Google?! 😉

Thanks

I have been trying to find this.
Does anyone have a link to download the file or know anyone that has it and can be contacted?
I have the US Laserdisc and The Japanese Box set Laserdisc of BATB. Would gladly show proof.

And just curious about spoRv 's work. Isn’t the work done on this project archived anywhere?
Why wouldn’t it be available anymore?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks for all the good work and the amazing people who care about art.

Beauty and the Beast’s CAPS source ratio is 1.66, yes, but it was hard matted to 1.85 on 35mm as the directors intended. There’s a preservation project currently in progress for an Italian print somewhere on this site with the same ratio. The only way you can see the film as close to the original CAPS ratio as possible in HD is through the 3-D Blu-ray. Same for Lion King.

Thanks for the info. Do you know how many of these titles have been scanned and available?

I’m sorry my bad. The original negative was 1.66 but now the top and bottom has been cropped to fit 16:9.
I have the BATB Laserdisc and it is letterboxed which shows the complete picture.

If you take a look at the link below or google BATB laserdisc bluray comparison, You’ll see what I mean.

This is my absolute dream. I don’t even know how you can find the 35mm films.

Beauty and the Beast is the one on this list that I’m dying to find. This title has suffered the most among the renaissance era after remastering for DVD and Bluray since the Laserdisc release.

The original academy ratio of 1.37:1 has been changed to 16:9, causing cropping and losing parts of the picture. The color changes to brighten the film also are drastically different and looks awful.

Please let me know how this process can be done. And I’d like to know how I can contribute.

Thanks
