The issue comes after classic episodes of The Simpsons‘ were cropped and zoomed to fit a widescreen format. The change means a number of visual gags are not displayed as intended.
Disney has confirmed the episodes will be viewable in their original 4:3 format next year.
“We presented The Simpsons in 16:9 aspect ratio at launch in order to guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons,” Disney said in a statement. “Over time, Disney+ will roll out new features and additional viewing options. As part of this, in early 2020, Disney+ will make the first 19 seasons (and some episodes from Season 20) of The Simpsons available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio, giving subscribers a choice of how they prefer to view the popular series.”
