The video quality is really stunning! Anyway I was waiting for this release for a long time because I read the 1st Classic Disney Short in HD would have been included. I mean "The Grasshopper and The Ants" , a wonderful Silly Symphony . The sad thing is when I watched the Blu-ray I discovered this short in not HD native but upconverted from NTSC source.
As soon as I watched it I noticed it's not as sharp as recent Disney Classic releases on Blu-ray, despite it should have a Technicolor negative source too (Such as Pinocchio for example) , it looks soft. Then I compared it with the version included in old Silly Symphonies DVD: there are the same 3 negatives alignment problems there were on the DVD; this lead me to think the DVD and the Blu-ray shared the same source. The problem more is evident in the first scenes, expecially in the scene where an ant is pulling a big tomato. I hoped the source master for both DVD and HD on Blu-ray was an HD 1920x1080 one, but the HD brings no more details than DVD, and I got the information the source is an NTSC Digibeta.
Having an unscaled material on Blu-ray sucks a lot, expecially an animation classic such as a Silly Symphony!
