Holy travel agent, Batman! Warner Bros. have just announced something fans have been wanting for a long time: a Blu-Ray remaster of the 1993 classic Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Serving as a cinematic continuation of Batman: The Animated Series, the film was released to massive success and spawned a cult following in the years that followed. Critics and fans alike have labelled it as one of the best Batman films to date – with many ranking it as one of the best animated films ever – and now it can be yours to take home on Blu-Ray…sometime this year.
Despite the wealth of information on the original post, Warner Bros. have not included a release date, but it’s highly likely that the film will hit shelves this year. Considering the original release was Christmas 1993, it wouldn’t be so out of the question for a December release. Who knows – we may even get another theatrical run! You can checkout the official listing on the Warner Archive Facebook page, or just scroll down for all of the sweet information you may need. Are you excited? Nostalgic?

When the city’s most feared gangsters are systematically eliminated, the Caped Crusader is blamed. But prowling the Gotham night is a shadowy new villain, the Phantasm, a sinister figure with some link to Batman’s past. Can the Dark Knight elude the police, capture the Phantasm and clear his own name?
Unmasking the Phantasm is just one of the twists in this dazzling animated feature. Discover revelations about Batman’s past, his archrival the Joker and Batman’s most grueling battle ever — the choice between his love for a beautiful woman and his vow to be the defender of right. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is “a mystery that is genuinely absorbing, suspenseful and moving” (Cincinnati Enquirer).
