  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Pinocchio must literally get back to the family tree in "The New Adventures Of Pinocchio," the sequel to 1996

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture with satisfying sharpness and detail, though some minor smearing is noticed. Colors are rich and warm, with accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Pixelization can be a problem with this title, with noticeable breakup of finer details, though edge enhancement is minimal. The source element is quite clean, with only minor flecks of dirt and film grain. (Suzanne Hodges) Also includes a modified 1.33:1 (4:3) version (not reviewed).

The 5.1 audio presentation features fine fidelity and a generally delightful soundfield presence through the music. There
