However, Disney officially announced that they ave updated all of the seasons of the series with and they are now available in 4:3. As The Hollywood Reporter tells us, the entire Fox cartoon library has been available on Disney+ since launch. However, Disney made the decision to launch with some of the episodes in 16:9 widescreen format. Disney said the decision was made to this to “guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons.”
The result of this move was that portions of given scenes (particularly in earlier seasons) were cut off. With a gag heavy show like The Simpsons, it meant that some jokes were no longer visible. One example which has been used several times to show evident problems with the crop was from an episode called “Selma’s Choice” where a gag about the different varieties of Duff Beer was completely cut out of the shot.
Now fans of The Simpsons that have a Disney+ subscription can decide how you want to watch The Simpsons. Both the 4:3 and the 16:9 are now available to choose from. All you need to do is look in the “Details” section of the series and there is an option that allows you to toggle between ratios. You can check out an example of how to do this here:
Disney+ announced back in April that they had been paying attention to customer feedback regarding the aspect ratios and had decided to work on the project during the COVID-19 shutdown.
