Two weeks before the Nov. 14 theatrical debut of the live-action/animated feature Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Warner Bros. Home Video will release a new DVD version of the last adventure starring Bugs, Slyvester, Tweety, Taz and the rest of the gang. Space Jam: Two-Disc Special Edition, set to hit shelves on October 28, will include a full hour of new-to-DVD, digitally re-mastered cartoons.
Space Jam opened in theaters in 1996 and grosses $225 million worldwide. The movie teamed the animated Looney Tunes crew with basketball great Michael Jordan and other NBA stars to take on a team of b-balling aliens bent on enslaving the human and toon races.
The new-to-DVD cartoons will include Another Froggy Evening, Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers, Night of the Living Duck, and The Duxorcist. Other extras will include music videos, a Looney Tunes: Back in Action Flash mini-game and commentary by Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and director Joe Pytka. Specially marked copies will offer $6.50 off any admission ticket to Looney Tunes: Back in Action.
Also on October 28, Warner will release four-DVD commemorative boxed-set The Looney Tunes Golden Collection ($64.92) and the double-disc The Looney Tunes Premiere Collection, starring Looney Tunes characters in some of their first animated appearances ($26.99). The roll-out will also include two all-new DVD compilations of Warner Bros. online shorts: Looney Tunes Reality Check! and Looney Tunes Stranger Than Fiction! Each will be available for $19.98 on DVD and $14.94 on VHS.
