    This just broke at the Batman TAS 25th anniversary panel at NY Comic Con. There are no details yet but "Super PR Guy" Gary Mieranu said it. Official written affirmation here:

    Mod Edit: Warner Archive Tweet

    Ugh, I don't know how to stop it from auto loading the tweet, but the link shows it linked to another tweet about BTAS.

    Oooh, wow. I just got the whole series on DVD about two years ago, but I'll probably have to splurge on this.

    I'll definitely be double dipping on this. It does make me wonder how they're going to do this though, considering it was edited on video. They might have to recut every episode, like they did with the TNG blurays. It won't be cheap.

    If they include The Adventures Of Batman And Robin: The Lost Episode, Gotham Girls, and The Adventures Of Batman And Robin second opening, I'll double-dip. If not, I won't.

    Man, so many SD TV cartoons are getting the HD upgrade all of a sudden. First Rescue Rangers and Goof Troop, then Samurai Jack, and now this!

    Where did you hear Rescue Rangers and Goof Troop were coming to Blu-Ray? Or is an HD picture available in a different format?

    Gotham Girls was produced after The New Batman Adventures, not after Batman: The Animated Series.

    Thats great news. I like what Warners and Disney are doing with all this HD stuff. Its not cheap HD, but has real effort behind it. Hopefully even more classic shows from even more studios get the same treatment.

    Amazing news... what a treat for the fans!

    Do we know what Alan Burnett is talking about here? That we can read 'The Gun' script that was never used as a special feature on one of the DVD's?

    The animation is cell/film, but credits were done on video from what I've read. Even if WB has to go in and redo each episode like Paramount did with TNG, though, the sales will warrant the work.

    Easily the best news of NYCC 2017. I am a tad concerned why this was announced before Subzero, which I believe they stated in July that they were "looking at". My main questions are will this include Batman and Robin and The New Batman Adventures? Does anyone know what episodes used the Batman and Robin opening?

    This is literally the best news I've heard all day. Definitely double dipping since my DVD copies are looking at little rough after 13 years.

    I would really, really love some new commentary tracks. I was bummed we didn't get any new ones on the complete box set when they released it.

    It should, since most official listings count all three titles as the same show.
    I wouldn't know for sure, but the eps labeled Batman and Robin are episodes 66 through 85.
