"Fans of Dungeons & Dragons are extremely excited to hear that BCI will work their magic on this much-loved 80s series, just as they did with He-Man."—Gord Lacey, TV Shows on DVD.
BCI, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Navarre Corporation, has obtained DVD rights to the original 1983 animated series “Dungeons & Dragons.” The complete series, featuring all 27 episodes in a collector’s four-disc boxed set, will be released under BCI’s Ink & Paint brand on November 7th at a suggested retail price of $49.98. The announcement was made today by Jeff Hayne, Director of Acquisitions, BCI.
“As we continue to build our catalog of classic animated series from the ‘70s and ‘80s, the industry is taking note of the success of these titles,” said Hayne. “We’re fortunate to have this unique opportunity to market ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ to the same audience that has been enjoying our most recent animated programming.”
“Dungeons & Dragons” tells the tale of six kids who, after riding the Dungeons & Dragons rollercoaster, mysteriously get sucked into its fantasy world. Once there, the kids are met with a variety of monsters and entities, but to their delight, they are also greeted by the mysterious Dungeon Master, who gives each of them a magical item to use to defend themselves against the evil beings.
The animated series is based on the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game that became a pop culture phenomenon in the 1980s, was produced by Marvel Productions and aired on CBS from 1983-1986. The game and series led to a feature film in 2000, starring Jeremy Irons and Marlon Wayans, as well as the Dungeons & Dragons Heroes video game for Xbox.
“Dungeons & Dragons” features the voices of Willie Aames (“Eight is Enough,” “Charles in Charge”), Adam Rich (“Eight is Enough”) and Donny Most (“Happy Days”). Special bonus features will be announced at a later date.
