Batman: Complete Animated Series Comes to Blu-ray With Digital Copy
Ten years ago, one of the world’s favorite superhero cartoons made it to home video in a deluxe package. Batman: The Complete Animated Series was a 17-DVD set put out in 2008 to allow fans to rewatch the astounding, deco-influenced animation and the milestone-setting voice acting.
Now, to keep up with changing tech, there’s a new Batman: The Complete Animated Series. The Limited Deluxe Edition will consist of the 109 episodes, originally aired from 1992-1995, remastered, on 10 Blu-ray discs. Warner has uploaded the remastered opening sequence to YouTube, and the sequence looks great and is still thrilling.
Two additional discs contain the recently-remastered animated films Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero.
Special features include digital copies of the episodes, 11 commentaries, over 20 featurettes, and an all-new 90-minute-long making-of documentary, “The Heart of Batman”. List price is $112.99, and the timing is such as to make this a popular holiday gift. Particularly since it comes with three Funko mini-figurines of Batman, the Joker, and Harley Quinn and seven lenticular art cards. The package is in a book with slipcase, and the sets are individually numbered out of 30,000. The release date is October 30.
