Batman: The Animated Series is one of the most lauded superhero animated shows of all time. Nobody is being reminded of this more than Warner Bros., who have been forced to increase the production of the upcoming Blu-Ray remasters due to “overwhelming demand”. In fact, production has increased to a whopping 70,000 units overall.
The desire for more Batman: The Animated Series is a good sign. Not only does it mean that old fans can revel in its sublime nostalgia, but new fans can join in the fun and see what all the fuss is about. The fuss, in this particular case, is about one of the best animated shows to grace the small screen. Indeed, many feel it is the finest interpretation of the Dark Knight ever (and yes, that’s even factoring in the Christopher Nolan trilogy).
General Manager & EVP, Television for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Jeff Brown commented on the high demand for the Blu-ray box-sets:
As many fans and media have noticed, Amazon and other notable retailers were forced to suspend sales of Batman: The Complete Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition due to unprecedented demand for this beloved series. Sales surpassed our initial run of 30,000 limited edition box sets about four weeks ago and, rather than leave so many fans wanting, we implemented new production orders to accommodate the requests for this prized collection. A significant portion of those increased numbers have already sold, and all sites are accepting orders again.
Batman: The Animated Series ran from 1992 to 1995, over two seasons. It would eventually be rechristened The New Batman Adventures with a brand new art style. The new art style allowed the show to integrate with the same universe as Superman: The Animated Series. This meant the birth of the DC animated universe.
The Batman animated series Blu-ray sets will be available on October 30th, 2018.
