This is good news indeed. I’ve been looking forward to the movies, and the episodes that will be take from the movies, for awhile. Can’t wait.Â I found this information on a Futurama Site
the 4 new DVDs are all going to be released in “Glorious Widescreen” and will be available in both DVD and High-Definition format. Each movie is approximately 88 minutes long and will be cut and reconfigured to be shown as four individual episodes on Comedy Central sometime after the release on DVD (date has not yet been set). The current plan states that the TV episodes are going to be in 4:3 to match the earlier episodes. All the more reason to buy the DVDs once they are available!
