In the HD 2016 release the whole presentation was through a binocular scope effect displaying the film within a circle with a black background around.
As the 2020 years' market seems to have re-opened its doors for DVDs, the full version of the film without anything recovering the scenes will be available on 4K along with the full two hours making of comedy with interviews with all the actors and producers. See more
