Speed Racer: The Next Generation - Comet Run DVD Announced: Finalized Date, Packaging, Bonus Toy


Mach 6 car is included in the package on this May 19th release

Way back in early December we broke the news that Lionsgate is prepping a DVD release for Speed Racer: The Next Generation - Comet Run, based on the 3-part story that was broadcast on NickToons this past Fall. Now the studio has finalized their plans and officially announced the release. We originally told you to expect it on May 5th, but Lionsgate has moved that back just a bit, and expects it to street on May 19th.

This single-disc release running 63 minutes won't have any extras other than a "trailers gallery," but it will come with a bonus pack-in Mach 6 toy car. Video is full frame, audio is English 5.1, and subtitles are in English and Spanish. It's also closed captioned for the hearing impaired. Cost is $14.98 SRP. Here's the studio description, followed by the package art:
    Speed Racer The Next Generation: Comet Run marks the third film for The Next Generation which builds on the legendary adventures of the original iconic series. It's a challenge too cool to pass up! Whoever beats trillionaire Dickie Radford's extraordinary Eco-Car in a pulse- pounding 3-day race, will win his entire company! He claims his car is so efficient it needs only one tank of gas for the whole race. Speed, Conor and Lucy are convinced their incredible Mach 6 can beat anyone and they're ready to take him on. So is billionaire Zile Zazic who puts his new gas-guzzling SUV to the test just to prove he can take Radford down. But this is no ordinary heart-pumping, virtual race. Radford's road is full of dirty tricks and he quickly steers the Mach 6 into a terrifying avalanche, knocking it out of the running just when it had taken the lead. It's up to Speed and his team to outrun and outsmart the most evil competitor they've ever raced!
