Is Batman: The Long Halloween going to be stitch together into one deluxe movie like Batman :The Dark Knight Returns was?
5/15: The short answer: Yes, the tentative release is in winter 2022.

The long answer: It was confirmed in a press release for Batman: The Long Halloween Part One on April 8, 2021. The line read, "Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack at a later date in 2022 as a combined presentation of the film with Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two." Then on October 16, 2021, it was stated, "In fall 2022 DC will release its first-ever fully CG animated movie Battle of the Super Sons. And in the winter a complete edition of Batman: The Long Halloween will be released in 4K."

7/1: @James Harvey noticed a retail site lists the Batman: The Long Halloween Deluxe Edition for September 20, 2022.

8/2: As @Kirben pointed out, the Krypto series set was delayed to September 27.

Is this deluxe edition only 4k? Doesn't make sense.

It appears Warner Bros will be releasing a Blu-Ray of Filmation's 1968 animated series The Adventures of Batman:


I mean, I would have preferred Static Shock or Justice League Action first, but I guess Batman sells.
Well, we do know Static Shock has already been remastered in HD since it's on HBOMax in 1080p. So the blu ray release of that is inevitable.

The real question is if The Zeta Project will ever get the HD remaster it deserves and if/when they'll ever release a complete series BD set.

I'm really hoping both Static and Zeta get full series Blu Ray releases this year.
That would only be plausible if HD masters of both shows existed. I'm not sure they do (both were done digitally and mastered in videotape; unless the digital files still exist and can be re-rendered in HD a la Justice League they will forever be relegated to standard def).

Well HBOMax has Static in HD, so I assume that series is ready to go on disc.

It's fun to see James Sie talk about Jackie Chan Adventures.

No mention for Sam & Cat nor Wendell & Vinnie since those two also premiered in 2013.
Since it's the animated show that was produced in France, ''Xiaolin Chronicles'' sure deserves a redub into English. Do you want to see this happening?
Norm of the North was released 7 years ago today.
The paradigm shift of “it’s 2011 and I want all my cancelled shows back on TV!” to “you better not so much as GLANCE at Moral Orel.”
