Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment have unmasked the official trailer for upcoming animated feature Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. The campy cartoon features the voices of 1960s Batman TV series stars Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman).
The trailer promises plenty of action — accompanied by sound effect balloons — as the dynamic duo face off against familiar foes, escape treacherous traps, and share important safety tips!
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders will hit shelves November 1 on Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98); and will be available on Digital HD starting October 11 through major digital retailers and game consoles including Amazon, iTunes, Playstation, Xbox, Vudu, CinemaNow and Flixster, plus cable and satellite VOD.
Blu-ray extras include two new featurettes. “Those Dastardly Desperados” explores how the famous fiends Joker, Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler became American pop culture icons; and “A Classic Cadre of Voices” goes behind the scenes in the recording booth with both the new cast and the returning stars West, Ward and Newmar.
It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. The four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. Holy Multiplication Tables!
The movie is directed by Rick Morales (LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash) from a script by Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!) and James Tucker (Justice League vs. Teen Titans), who also serve as Producer and Supervising Producer. Sam Register, Benjamin McIniker and Michael Uslan are executive producers.
