Defenders of the Earth - Another Rescue by Mill Creek with 'The Complete 65 Episode Series' DVDs

Mid-May release of this new 5-disc set of a show previously put out by the now-defunct BCI

Posted by David Lambert
    Tyrant Ming the Merciless and his vast army of evil accomplices are working overtime to eliminate the human race. But the Defenders of the Earth led by legendary crime-fighters The Phantom, Flash Gordon, Mandrake and his trusted confidant and bodyguard Lothar join forces with their uniquely talented teenage children to challenge Ming and his evil followers in a series of great adventures.

    The dazzling quartet of heroes is joined by their young offspring: handsome and headstrong Rick Gordon; Jedda Walker and her panther sidekick; tough and smart Lothar "L.J." Jr.; and orphaned Kshin with his outer-space pet Zuffy. Together, the team of heroes must battle against evildoers from their pasts and future, including Ming and his underlings, as well as super villains, marauding aliens, destructive demons and sultry enchantresses! United as a team, they protect mankind as the Defenders of the Earth.

    Both sides employ powerful computers and space age technology in their arsenals of weapons. They are our last best hope. For a frightened but determined planet they are the Defenders of the Earth.
Almost a full month before Universal can bring you their just-announced Blu-ray version of the wonderfully campy 1980 Flash Gordon film (starring Sam Jones, Max von Sydow and Timothy Dalton), Mill Creek Entertainment is bringing you the battle against Ming the Merciless by an animated Flash Gordon and his pals Mandrake the Magician, Lothar and The Phantom. This 1986 animated series was previously put out on DVD, but was discontinued when the studio - BCI Eclipse - closed their doors a while back. Now Mill Creek has made this their latest rescue of an old BCI property, and will release it on May 18th as "Defenders of the Earth - The Complete 65 Episode Series." It comes on 5 double-sided DVDs, featuring full screen video and English 2.0 Dolby Stereo sound, for just $24.98 SRP.
