‘Batman: The Animated Series’ Coming to Blu-ray

Share on Pinterest

Holy announcement, Batman! Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced  earlier this week via a press release that Batman: The Animated Series will finally be making its much anticipated debut on Blu-ray format in late 2018. Plans were announced at the New York Comic Con panel on Sunday and caps off the latest in a number of news pieces commemorating the series’ 25th anniversary.

Fans have long clamored for the series to be released in a high definition format and the release of the underrated classic Batman: Mask of the Phantasm earlier this summer on Blu-ray had many wondering if the flagship series would follow shortly. There is currently no word on whether Batman: The Animated Series will be released as a complete series set, individual “volumes” (following the same format as the previous DVD release), or both. For those who can’t wait until next year you can stream the entire series on Amazon on Prime Video here.

Are you excited about this integral chapter in the Batman canon coming out soon? Should this pave the way for more OG DC Animated Universe series to follow suit? Sound off in the comments below!

    If they included the Batman Beyond flashbacks and exclude the new animated Batman stuff (killing joke, & Harley Quinn), i would except it with open hands. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b8e1d97b2d20a421016df5b0fa45652f305e4e0cf5a27de126c7ce923fa43f8a.jpg

      Batman: The Animated Series is its own thing, so the recent Batman animated movies won’t be included. Also, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker is available on Blu-ray.

    Now we only need Superman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond on Blu-ray. Hopefully the wait won’t be too long.

    I love Batman TAS and have a lot of fond memories of watching it on Saturday mornings on Fox Kids. Even years later, the animation still looks gorgeous and I can’t wait to see what it looks like in HD.
