The Simpsons To Stream In Original Aspect Ratio Next Week on Disney+

The Simpsons was available at the launch of Disney+, but many fans pointed out the show was not in its original 4:3 aspect ratio. It is currently available in a 16:9 ratio, but that will change next week.

Writer/producer Al Jean noted on Twitter: “The even more important most important tweet I can make!
As always you have been heard! @theSimpsons episodes will be available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio on #DisneyPlus beginning 5/28.

The issue with the aspect ratio being changed is that many of the show’s visual gags were cut as a result of not being shown as it originally aired. When the news was first announced last November, Disney said this will include the first nineteen seasons and select episodes from season twenty.
