Alvin and the Chipmunks put a high-flying new spin on one of the most anticipated films of the year. Batmunk is a thrilling adventure that'll keep you on the edge of your seat...with laughter! Simon (in the most heroic role of his long, brainy career) plays the Caped Crime fighter to mischievous Alvin's hilariously villainous Jokester, an arch criminal whose cult of crooked clowns has been stealing all the toys in the city. When the thieves go after the greatest toy in the world, Batmunk decides to teach the bad guys that crime doesn t play!
The episode "Batmunk" has been on DVD before, courtesy of the 2007 release titled "Alvin And The Chipmunks - The Chipmunks Go To The Movies
." But with a new film, The Dark Knight Rises
, hitting theaters in mid-July, it's not surprising that Bagdasarian Productions wants to re-release this episode as the focus of a new single-disc, inexpensive ($14.99 SRP) DVD release titled Alvin And The Chipmunks - Batmunk
. Amazon.com has a pre-order listing
for this title, showing a shipping date of July 10th
...just ten days before the new film hits theaters. Package art isn't available yet, nor any info about what other episodes might be included on this 66-minute-long disc. Stay tuned, though, and we'll try to get that to you as soon as we can. Our thanks to reader Garrett Weesner for an email telling us about Amazon's entry.
