In mid-January I posted news
that Rhino's release of Jem: The Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons
would arrive in mid-May. Not long aftward, TVShowsOnDVD owner Gord Lacey had to update my news post to correct the info he had passed on to me: Rhino had actually told him April, instead of May.
Over at the Jem Mailing List
website, they took up my original (incorrect) news post with their own contact at Rhino, and this is what that website reported:
I e-mailed Sam Toles, our contact at Rhino, concerning this story. This was his response:
"All of this is true - with the exception of the "mid-may" part. It will be sooner than that... but I can't advise on exactly when until it is announced to the trades."
Samantha Newark, the speaking voice for Jem/Jerrica, has posted at the TRULY OUTRAGEOUS! JEM message board concerning the "Jem" DVD. She confirmed that she did an interview as a special feature for the "Jem" DVD box set. She was told by Rhino that a tentative release date for the set is April 13 (please note that this is a TENTATIVE date).
That synced up with Gord's corrected information...until today.
Today Rhino made all of the previous release dates incorrect, by formally announcing that the street date for Jem: The Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons is March 30, 2004.
This seems chosen to distribute it at the same time as the two single-disc Transformers: Armada releases
that are scheduled to street on the same day.
Don't forget, too, that it is still Rhino's perogative to change that release date if they see fit to do so...nothing's ever written in stone until after it happens!
And that's all the news we have for you today for Jem!
on DVD. Rhino hasn't yet provided any other official specs, cover art, or other details. Stay tuned, because we will have that for you the second it's available.
