The Disney + team confirmed on Thursday via Twitter that the first seasons of the Simpsons will soon be shown in the original 4: 3 format. So far, the episodes have only been shown in widescreen format or zoomed in, which means that parts of the image at the top and bottom of the screen are no longer visible. Disney + currently expects the episodes to be released in their original format in late May 2020.

Simpsons fans already get a lot going on at Disney +. All 30 seasons of the series with the yellow family are available on the streaming platform. However, there has been harsh criticism from fans since the start of Disney + in the United States – which now also includes viewers in Germany. The problem? Old seasons of the Simpsons, which are still in 4: 3 format, are broadcast on Disney + in 16: 9 – the wrong aspect ratio means that parts of the picture at the top and bottom of the screen are not visible, which is a lot of drawn gags and punchlines disappears in the background.

Disney has now confirmed via Twitter that a solution is already being worked on. The Disney + team is currently assuming that the first 19 seasons and parts of the twentieth season will be offered in the well-known 4: 3 format towards the end of May. Incidentally, other series on the streaming platform are also affected by this problem. These include Chip and Chap, Goofy and Max, Arielle, the Mermaid and some other older productions from the Disney catalog.

At the beginning of the week we already introduced you to the new films and series that will join Disney + in April. The highlights include A Toy Story: Everything doesn't stop on April 11 or Christopher Robin on April 15. But also new episodes of numerous originals will appear on Disney + in the coming weeks. Including Star Wars: The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series or Marvel's Hero Project.
