    Unleashing The Power Of The Animal Kingdom
    On Digital HD on May 8, 2017
    Blu-ray™ and DVD on May 23, 2017

    [​IMG]

    From executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings you the animated feature, VIXEN: The Movie, on Digital HD on May 8, 2017, and on Blu-ray (including Digital HD copy) and DVD on May 23, 2017. VIXEN: The Movie is priced to own at $19.98 SRP for the Blu-rayTM and $18.94 SRP for the DVD.

    VIXEN: The Movie combines the first two seasons of the CW Seed digital series into a single uniform story and includes 15 minutes of all-new, never-before-seen content. The special features include a brand new featurette and two Vixen-focused episodes of Justice League Unlimited handpicked by super hero animation icon Bruce Timm.

    Produced by Warner Bros.’ digital studio Blue Ribbon Content, VIXEN: The Movie features Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI Miami, The 4400, Damien) as the voice of Vixen/Mari McCabe. She is joined by the voices of Stephen Amell (Green Arrow), Grant Gustin (The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon), Katie Cassidy (Black Canary), Victor Garber (Martin Stein) & Franz Drahmeh (Jax) collectively as Firestorm, and Brandon Routh (The Atom), reprising their roles from Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

    Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe grew up an orphan after her parents were killed by local greed, corruption and wanton violence. But Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals – anything from the strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.

    “VIXEN: The Movie gives fans the action sequences and the characters that they all fell in love with in Arrow and The Flash,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. We are very excited to release VIXEN: The Movie for fans of the hit series and DC collectors, featuring never-before-seen content available exclusively to owners of the Blu-ray, DVD or Digital HD.”

    With Blu-ray’s unsurpassed picture and sound, VIXEN: The Movie Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. The 1-disc Blu-ray will feature the Blu-ray disc and a Digital HD copy of the movie.

    VIXEN: The Movie is produced by Blue Ribbon Content and is based on DC characters. Executive producers are Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow) and Andrew Kreisberg (Arrow, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl). James Tucker (DC Universe Original Movies, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the producer; Tucker and Curt Geda (Beware the Batman, Batman Beyond) are the directors. It was written by Wendy Mericle (Arrow), Keto Shimizu (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Brian Ford Sullivan (Arrow), Lauren Certo (The Flash), Nolan Dunbar (Arrow), Sarah Tarkoff (Arrow) and Marc Guggenheim, with Guggenheim and Shimizu serving as story editors. VIXEN Season 1 debuted on August 25, 2015 on The CW's online streaming platform, CW Seed. Season 2 debuted on October 13, 2016.

    No way! I was just wondering about Static Shock the other day! I own every other DCAU show on DVD/Blu-ray, and I've been wanting to add Static to complete the collection. Awesome news!

    Zeta Project...meh. The one DCAU show I don't particularly like, but I still like that WB will finally have the whole DCAU on DVD.

    That is pretty awesome news. It's nice that both series will be available on DVD in the near future. Getting to see Static Shock again would be a lot of fun for me in particular.

    I'm elated to see the news. While I would have preferred a series set for Static, I understand the economics of why it's only a season 1 set. I can only hope fans respond with their wallets so we'll see the next 3 sets offered.

    And to think, less than a month ago, in this very thread, I expressed some pessimism for both Zeta (season 2) and Static making it to DVD. Warner does it again in ensuring that their super-hero shows are preserved on home media! Excellent work, guys!

    If only Disney/Marvel would even consider doing the same...

    Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! I'm celebrating right now. Anyone have any pre-ourder information at all? Just on their website!
    I just wanted to thank everyone who responded to the thread I made that got put into this one and tried contacting Warner, or helped in other ways, including simply throwing in your suggestions and thoughts about it or supplying informative information! And of course all the fans who were on a mission to make these releases a reality long before I even thought to! I don't know about all of you, but I'm pre-ordering immediately!...as soon as I payday hits!:sweat:

    Pre-orders are only live on WBShop's website currently.

    Amazon does have placeholders up but it's bare and not live yet. It should be shortly. 3/1: It's live!

    -Zeta Project S2

    I'm up for these older shows getting a DVD release, and hopefully the rest of Static can be on DVD. Too bad there aren't any bonus features.

    Amazing news.

    I'll be honest... I would rather WB Archive had crafted a 26 episode/4 disc set for Static Shock, which meant we would only have to buy two volumes. Therefore, lowering potential risk of them not finishing the series.

    On the other hand, I understand that might not have been cost effective in and of itself.

    Warner Archive have been a bit slow with some of their animated series releases, but for series they've had to split into sets, they've not done too badly in finishing them. It may take a little while, but I'm confident they will eventually finish Static. They must be aware that there is likely to be greater interest in the following seasons due to the DCAU connections, which by my reckoning are among the final DCAU episodes to be released on home media (outside of Static Shock's own episodes, of course).
