FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ADV FILMS SETS RELEASE DATE FOR BEASTMASTER-SEASON THREE: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION
THIRD SEASON OF POPULAR FANTASY/ADVENTURE SERIES AVAILABLE ON DVD NOVEMBER 18, 2003
HOUSTON, October 3, 2003 - ADV Films today announced a November 18, 2003 date for the DVD release of BeastMaster-Season Three: The Complete Collection. The final ADV Films BeastMaster release, starring Daniel Goddard as Dar the BeastMaster, weighs in at a hefty 1,100 minutes total running time.
ADV Films also announced a new lower price for all three seasons of its BeastMaster DVD releases. While each of the first two complete seasons of BeastMaster originally carried a $69.98 SRP upon their release to stores, the price has been retroactively re-priced at $39.98 SRP. BeastMaster-Season Three: The Complete Collection will be released to stores with the new suggested retail price.
Based on the works of legendary science fiction author Andre Norton, BeastMaster is the saga of Dar, a warrior - the last of his tribe - who is gifted with the ability to communicate with animals. Joined by a devoted scholar named Tao and a legion of animal warriors, Dar battles dark forces of unimaginable power to bring peace and justice to a land plagued by incredible evil. Dar's epic is must-see entertainment for the entire family!
Boasting a talented cast, beautiful settings (the series is filmed in Queensland, Australia), thrilling action, wizardry and a strong backbone of ecologically positive messaging (reminiscent of that in J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy), BeastMaster has created a community of passionate fans who have for years been craving a home-video release of the title. According to a recent Nielsen Galaxy Ratings Report (dated 8/4/03-8/10/03), BeastMaster ranks among the top ten syndicated science-fiction programs. The official website for the series is found at http://www.beastmaster.com/.
BeastMaster-Season Three: The Complete Collection (SRP $39.98) is a DVD-only release on six discs. It includes all 22 episodes of the third season of the series, and is presented in spectacular 16 x 9 anamorphic widescreen. Extras include: an extensive interview with Daniel Goddard ("Dar"); original TV trailers for all 22 episodes; and ADV Previews.
