Lion King aspect ratio question
 
Is "The Lion King" actually 1.66:1 or is it
1.85:1. My Laserdisc is 1.85:1 yet several
reviews have noted it as being at 1.66:1.

Hopefully its just an error....

I don't know about Lion King specifically, but at the time it was made
it was not unusual for animated films to be made 1.66:1.

But were they framed for 1.66:1? I assume they would make cartoons 1.66:1 so
they didn't have to crop as much from the sides for the 4:3 transfer.

It wouldn't make sense because my Laserdisc is 1.85:1, keep in mind
that "Aladdin" is 1.66:1 and is presented that was on the CAV Letterbox
Edition I own. That's why I question why I keep seeing 1.66:1 being the
quoted AR on "Lion King" when my LD is at 1.85:1.

I'll compared the two when I buy my copy like every person on
October 7th will be doing.
