Batman: The Animated Series Coming to Bluray in Nice Collectors Box Set!
One of the most iconic (if not the most iconic) animated series of all time is about to get the blu-ray treatment! Batman: The Animated Series is considered by some to be THE Batman of their generation. The show which turns 25 years old this year (wow I am getting old) has been available on DVD, but not in HD form. Sure there have been episodes here and there included with some of DC Entertainment’s animated films, but the entire show has never been released in that format.
The DC Universe streaming app will include the first two seasons of Batman: The Animated Series with its release, but that is only the first two episodes. At San Diego Comic-Con 2018 the show featured its own panel, in which the announcement of the blu-ray box set was made. The Blu-Ray is set to drop October 16th and will contain remastered versions of the original 85 episodes that aired between 1992 and 1995. In addition, the collection will also include the 24 episodes of The New Batman Adventures, which was a follow-up to the first show, running from 1997 to 1999. Also the two movies spun off from the series Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, and Batman: Sub-Zero will also be included in the blu-ray format. Fans who purchase the box set will also get three Funko figures (Batman, Harley, Joker), cards depicting certain scenes from the show, a behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the series, and some other awesome goodies.
You can currently pre-order the box set from Amazon for a cool $112.00 right now!
