Batman: Mask of the Phantasm will get a 4K Blu Ray release in time for it’s 30th anniversary.
Fans of the animated film can rejoice at the long-over due high definition release. Despite the fact the movie’s a spin-off of the highly successful Batman: The Animated Series, the film opened in theaters in 1993, but performed poorly at the box-office. Since then, both fans and critics have come around on the underrated gem.

The 4K release also features new cover art and bonus content, which includes a Kevin Conroy retrospect that looks back on his career voicing the Dark Knight through various television shows, movies, and video games. Check out the official description of the Conroy retrospective.
Kevin Conroy: I Am The Knight (New Featurette) – For 30 years, Kevin Conroy defined Batman for multiple generations using only his voice, best exemplified in the landmark film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Conroy passed away in November 2022, but his legacy lives on in 15 films, nearly 400 episodes of animated television series, a dozen video games, and as a live-action Bruce Wayne in the Arrowverse’s 2019-2020 “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event.
Several of Conroy’s contemporaries – including animation legend Bruce Timm, Batman producer Michael Uslan and revered voice actress Tara Strong – pay tribute to the star who remains the Dark Knight for millions of Batfans.
The disc also features the Justice League Unlimited episode “Epilogue“, where we see the only other animated appearance of the Phantasm. This is a particularly nice touch for fans who are completists for Phantasm appearances.
Check out the new trailer for the 4K release.
While it does a good job hyping the movie up, I have to admit that it gives a bit too much of the story away.
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm hits digital and Blu Ray on September 12.
