A couple of months ago we posted this news roundup
of misc. items, including a report from a pre-order catalog targeted at comic book retailers that The Simpsons - Gone Wild
would be a DVD release in July 2004, list-pricing at $14.98.
This sounds like a "best-of" release in the vein of last year's Treehouse Of Horror
and Christmas With The Simpsons
single-disc-shots. The problem was, there was nothing from Fox Home Video that verified this was coming out! Moreover, as time has past and the Fox July release schedule was revealed, this particular item never showed up....it certainly will NOT be out next month!
Well, Fox still hasn't made a formal announcement about this, but if you purchased last Tuesday's Complete 4th Season
box set, then it's likely you got an insert with it that shows the cover art for this release, and says that it's "Coming Soon."
A correct date and the actual contents still aren't known, here's a shot of that cover art:
There is an overseas release by the same name, but recent events
have proven to us that no matter what the release, no matter which studio it is, you can't trust releases from other regions to always be identical to a similarly-named Region 1 (North American) release.
Stay tuned, and when the official studio info comes to light, we'll fill you in. In the meantime, enjoy that picture...and have a doughnut or two!
