In the United States, Labyrinth was released on home video in a variety of formats.
Laser Disc - the original 1987 release was 'pan and scan'. The 1994 laser disc release was 'widescreen'.
8 mm - a rare format that never became popular, 8 mm was a smaller form of video, often used in camcorders.
The 1999 DVD also included the documentary "Inside the Labyrinth". The 1999 VHS contains a 10 minute 'featurette' from the documentary.
In England and Australia, PAL (a foreign VHS format) videos were released with different artwork on the packaging.
In 1999 Region 2 DVDs were released in England with different art and a Region 2 German DVD of "Die Reise ins Labyrinth" ("The Journey in the Labyrinth") was also issued. The German DVD appears to have the same artwork as the USA DVD.
