Here’s her review of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir: Be Miraculous – 3:
The video is 1.78:1 anamorphic. The transfers allow the red and blacks pop as the duo fight various colorful crooks. The audio is Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. The sound dazzles as they transform. There’s also French and Spanish dubs. This is great so the kids can hear the original French track for the import. The episodes are subtitled.
