Dungeons & Dragons - Mill Creek Acquires the License to the Classic '80s Cartoon; Preps 2 Titles

Get either the entire series, or just the first group of episodes, late this August

Posted by David Lambert
Back in late 2006, BCI Eclipse released the complete series of the classic '80s animated Dungeons & Dragons, having licensed the property from Disney/Buena Vista through their Director of Acquisitions at the time, Jeff Hayne. The title's gone out of print, however, following the shutdown of BCI by parent company Navarre, which happened at the end of last year. Hayne had departed from BCI quite a bit before that, however, and landed at Mill Creek Entertainment. Now we see history repeat itself, apparently, as Mill Creek acquires the license to the DVD rights, and prepares their own releases of Dungeons & Dragons, both arriving on August 25th!

Today has added a pair of pre-order listings for two upcoming titles, both from Mill Creek Entertainment. One is a single-disc release named Dungeons & Dragons - The Beginning. It runs 240 minutes, for $14.98, and looks like it will have the first 8 episodes out of the 27 which were produced (take that episode count with a grain of salt, however, as it is not confirmed yet). The other release is a collection named Dungeons & Dragons - The Animated Series. For $24.98, it appears to have the entire run of 27 episodes squeezed onto 3 discs...meaning that if those discs are single-sided, then there assuredly won't be any room for any bonus material such as we saw on BCI's version. Strangely, Amazon shows the running time as 686 minutes, noticeably higher than BCI's running time of 594 minutes. We'll try to get that straightened out, and also bring you the cover art, as soon as we can. Stay tuned!
