 Wrong!

Don't know what the earlier reviewer below is complaining about. The reason pinocchio isn't 16:9 is because it wasn't made in widescreen! It's original aspect ratio was 1.37:1 (ie 4:3). Google it!

Classic film & the blu-ray version is the definitive edition.

...Next you'll be complaining raging bull is only available in black & white

Edit: There is no confusion. Let me repeat again. A TRUE 16:9 version of Pinocchio does NOT exist! Your 16:9 DVD is either squashed & stretched to fill 16:9 (making everyone look like fat midgets), or the top & bottom of the screen has been cropped off.

According to reviews, just the film alone takes up 23.9GB on the Blu-ray disc. A 16:9 version would likely be even larger size (due to having to fill more of the screen). It's highly unlikely you would be able to fit both versions at the same picture quality onto a 50GB disc. Even if you could just about do it, by including 2 versions of the film, you'd have no room for any extras (PiP, commentary etc).

If you're so determined to watch your Blu-ray disc in fake 16:9 then use the 'zoom' functions that are available on any widescreen TV. This will give an identical picture to as if they'd put a fake 16:9 version on the disc.
Problem solved, don't insist on everyone else having an inferior 16:9 version taking up space, at the expense of picture quality & extras on their discs.

 One of Disney's best given star treatment on Blu-ray

Pinocchio celebrates it's 70th Anniversary in style with this 2 disc bluray and 1 disc dvd package which has never looked as good in the 70 years until now...Even though it's shot in 4:3 fullscreen ratio this does not deflate from vibrant colours and detail that has never been seen before...As said if you want to zoom the picture to fit a widescreen tv this can also be done with fantastic results...From the conscience of Jiminy Cricket to Geppeto Pinocchio's toy making father comes a fantastic journey of a puppet with no strings given a wish by a fairy to have the chance to become a real live boy only to get kidnapped by a cunning fox and a travelling entertainer...add to this a boy's dream in pleasure island that has dark secrets with a ship eating whale , which concludes the fantastic imagination of this feature animation....Pinocchio is probably one of the most emotive Disney's both for the young at heart and adults alike but one thing is for certain you will not be disappointed in this fantastic package ..very highly recommended....

OK, when people complain that the film is not in widescreen, they do not know anything about this film or in fact the film creation process. In order for this film to be in widescreen, they would have had to re-make the whole thing (unthinkable), or re-draw the lost edges (impossible). As another reviewer has stated, any "widescreen" version is a fake, they've used simple tricks such as cropping or stretching to fill a widescreen space, there is NO widescreen version of this film because it was NEVER MADE IN WIDESCREEN.

Stunning steady picture quality, the colours and quality of the drawn lines, for a 70 year old movie, is astonishing. The scenery and backgrounds are absolutely brilliant. This is easily one of the best Blu-Ray releases, but I'm biased slightly because this is one of my favourite films ever made.

What can i say... amazin! Keep them coming disney!

Indeed... What was that guy on about! If you have ever seen the film enchanted you will notice the animation at the start of the film appears in the same ratio. It then jumps to widescreen with the live action sequences... they did this to resemble the old disney films!
