Update from Jim Harvey: Upon reading the news posted at
TV Shows on DVD, I contacted some sources to confirm. And?
We did it! Beginning with the mid-2006 release of
Justice League: Season Two, the series will be presented in

If you've seen the second season of Justice League on Cartoon
Network or purchased the "Starcrossed" DVD, you'll see one major
difference between the previous season of Justice League: season
two is in widescreen. Not only was it aired in
widescreen, it was animated in widescreen. Below is a comparison

With Justice League: Season 1
just having been announced on DVD, there is a

A note from show creator / producer Bruce Timm was
posted on the forums concerning this matter:
|We’ll be starting the special features stuff in
the next few weeks, which means a decision on fullscreen
or widescreen will need to be made very soon. I’ve been
doing my best to persuade the WHV folks to release the
season two set (and all subsequent JLU sets) in
widescreen, but it’s an uphill battle (fullscreen format
is the standard default mode for “family entertainment”
DVDs). A deluge of polite, but emphatic, letters
expressing fan support for widescreen DVD sets just
might tip the scales.
In an effort to inform Warner Bros. Home Video about this issue,
the forum members, Toon Zone News, The Watchtower and The World's Finest have
started a 'Justice League: Season 2 DVD Widescreen' campaign.
The only thing we're asking fans of Justice League to do is
write a letter to Warner Home Video, expressing your
the second season of Justice League (and for that matter, future
releases of Justice League Unlimited) in an 1.85:1 Anamorphic
Widescreen release. It's possible that a deluge of concise and
polite letters may help their decision on how to proceed with
the Aspect Ratio for Season 2 of Justice League.
Listed below is the mailing address for Warner Home Video. It's
imperative that these letters get sent out as soon as possible,
as production on the second season of Justice League's DVD
release will begin within a few weeks.
