Dark Oracle - Mill Creek Teams with Cookie Jar to Release The Complete Series

Posted by David Lambert
Dark Oracle follows Cally and Lance Stone, 15-year-old fraternal twins, who are suddenly thrust into a comic book world of danger, fear and uncertainty. In a unique blend of live action and comic book style animation, the two confront their animated alter egos, Violet and Blaze, who possess the uncanny ability to manipulate their future.
With events in the comic book world influencing ones in their own world, Cally and Lance struggle to stay one step ahead of their dark counterparts, or face a very unpleasant fate. The stakes become higher still, with Violet and Blaze trying to escape into the real world to wreak further havoc. Dark Oracle is a distinctive TV drama, shifting teens in and out of an exciting and perilous fantasy world.

Mill Creek Entertainment has signed an agreement with Cookie Jar Entertainment to distribute DVDs in the United States for their library of programs. As a reminder, Cookie Jar was called Cinar up until 2004, and in 2008 they merged with DiC Entertainment. So some of these titles are DiC-produced, like the Nickelodeon-aired Super Duper Sumos. But among our site's registered members, voting shows that the most popular of the programs included in these first releases would be Dark Oracle - The Complete Series!
Arriving on August 17th, Mill Creek is releasing a 3-DVD set with all 26 episodes of the show as aired on Canada's YTV Channel. As extras, each disc will contain a bonus item from the Cookie Jar library: an episode of Mona the Vampire titled "The Nefarious Computer Virus"; an episode of Treasure titled "When Mum Meets Brian"; and a 90-minute live action telefilm titled "Sally Marshall Is Not an Alien." The cost for all of this? Just $14.98 SRP! Here's a look at the online trailer for Dark Oracle - The Complete Series, followed by the cover art:
