This past May saw Universal's release of Land of the Lost - The Complete Series
, a re-done re-release of the original 1974 series, first out on DVD by Rhino back in 2004-2005. The new set, available both in a standard box and a "Limited Retro Lunchbox Edition
," was available in time to tie in with the theatrical debut of the new Will Ferrell/Anna Friel film.
Today Universal announced the home video release of the remake film, coming to both DVD and Blu-ray on October 13th
...simultaneously announcing that this is the same day that the studio will also release separate season sets of the original Sid & Marty Krofft-produced show! Each individual release of Land of the Lost - Season 1
(3 DVDs), Land of the Lost - Season 2
(2 discs) and Land of the Lost - Season 3
(2 discs) will cost $26.98 SRP per set. The only bonus material mentioned so far is a preview of the theatrical film, on the Season 3
A small look at the package art for these three can be found below. I'd also like to express my patent disbelief that we can't seem to get the 1991 incarnation of the series on DVD. That version of the show is TVShowsOnDVD's 211st most-wanted unreleased-on-DVD series...not super-high, but certainly respectable and potentially profitable. If it won't be released now, to tie in with the home video release of this film, then when? If Universal doesn't want to put it out, we hope that they're working with an independent studio (such as Shout! Factory, for example), to get it put out!
