This widescreen collection serves as a touchstone for Anne fans and is certain to cultivate lifelong “kindred spirits” as it finds new audiences.
The Restoration Process: While filming 2008's Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning, Kevin Sullivan realized that all of the Anne of Green Gables titles would benefit from the new digital technology being used on the production. A team of film experts have painstakingly transferred the original film footage of the first three movies, and has repaired each scratched or damaged frame, addressed color degradation issues, and negative sparkle and dirt. Their hard work has paid off: the resulting widescreen digital transfers are simply breathtaking.
This collection includes:

Looks great, lots of fun to share now with my kids.
None of the other retellings come close to this classic. My well loved original dvds needed replacing and was excited to receive this restoration collection!!
I've loved the 1985 dvd of the first two episodes for many years, and purchased this version for my new HD tv. I was hoping the quality of this version would be much better on the HD tv because the 1985 version looks junky. I think most/all of the restoration on this disc is cinematic restoration, meaning the color is better, and it's been cropped into widescreen format, etc, but I don't think there's been any or much enhancement to the quality of the film-to-dvd transfer.
There are still a lot of areas of pixelation and high graininess that are disappointing. I would have purchased the newish BluRay version of the first show, but since Anne of Avonlea is not available in BluRay (unless you spend $200 for a huge box set) I decided to try this instead. Now I wish I would have tried the BluRay, but I don't really know if that would have been better.
The dvds arrived quickly and we are delighted to enjoy my childhood favourite as a family.
We love this story and DVD set and have been borrowing them year over year from the public library. For Christmas, we gave the set to the girls and, as I write, they are currently watching their annual screening of Anne of Green Gables! The video and sound quality are great!
