Or on a theatre sized screen way bigger than the picture you posted, where it was shown originally.
I wonder how many people notice things like that, though, unless maybe they've seen the film a few times in a theater.
I wouldn't worry about Disney modifying their films too much in this sense since it would cost them more and there's no plans to release the movie on an IMAX sized screen for example.
But aren't home TVs getting bigger and bigger? Obviously most people don't have movie theater-sized TVs at home, but I wonder if Disney considers it when restoring films.
And what about when Disney is creating a new film. Like, people have noticed lack of details in Disney films in the past, like in the examples above and other examples. But, for example, were there any shots in The Princess and the Frog
or in Winnie the Pooh
that may look not detailed on a big screen if someone noticed it? Or does Disney keep in mind that these films will be shown on large home TV screens in HD and they're more conscious of how the lack of details would look?
And does this happen in CG films?

They better not. If they would it would be wrong and appallingly disrespectful to Walt and his artists.
I know that some purists would probably say that updating these films would be blasphemy, but I think I would be in favor of it. After all, it wouldn't be changing a design necessarily.
I don't think that it would be disrespectful to Walt and his artists, because back then, VHS/laserdisc/DVD/Blu-ray didn't exist. And home TVs were smaller. So, if someone caught a film on The Wonderful World of Color
, for example, it was on a small screen and they wouldn't pause it or go frame-by-frame. I don't think that too much should be tinkered with, and I'm not 100% sure how I feel about them tweaking things. I think that it's not as bad to make faces more detailed and similar things like that, but I feel less happy about the changed waterfalls in The Lion King
, for just one example.
