Simpson's Movie Aspect Ratio

Just found this posted on the animationguildblog ....

"Simpson" Feature Continues to Ramp Up


Rough Draft Feature Animation has been hiring more artists for "The Simpsons" feature...

When I walked through the facility yesterday, cubicles were no longer empty. Several industry veterans were now there, along with fresh talent from Cal Arts. RD will be bringing more artists on board next week as the production tempo increases. The Glendale studio, in case you don't know, is working on sequences that are separate and apart from the ones that IDT Entertainment is doing over on Hollywood Way.

The feature is being done in wide screen. And not just any wide screen, but (allegedly) in Cinemascope.
