Transformers Prime - 'Darkness Rising' DVD info Updated: Story Presentation and Extras

December 6th release to be presented as one seamlessly-edited-together feature

Posted by David Lambert
Early last month we brought you Shout! Factory/Hasbro's press release announcing the December 6th DVD for Transformers Prime - Darkness Rising. This is the original 5-part mini-series which launched the new program on The Hub cable network, and up until now it's been expected that these would be found on the DVD as the individual episodes they were originally seen as for broadcast. Now Shout! Factory has sent us the following information, describing the bonus material as well as the actual story presentation:
    On December 6, 2011, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro, will release TRANSFORMERS PRIME - DARKNESS RISING DVD, featuring the entire five action-packed episodes edited together in a seamless, riveting movie and special bonus content that includes animatics and a special look at concept designs for characters and backgrounds. Delivering a new level of heavy metal action and family entertainment for all ages, this highly collectible DVD is priced to own with a suggested retail price of $14.97.
So, rather than as individual episodes, this DVD will present Darkness Rising as a widescreen movie-type feature, with everything "sewn" together as one big story. We've confirmed that no footage from the episodes will be cut in the process, so fans can just sit back, relax, and watch this theater-style. Additionally, Shout! is working with Hasbro to insert extras on this disc, consisting of the above-mentioned Animatics, and the Special Look at Concept Designs for Characters and Backgrounds.

Fans have been asking about whether Shout! will move forward with season sets of this program, and whether that will only be on DVD, or if it would include Blu-ray Disc as well. Nothing's been announced to answer either question yet, but stay tuned and we'll let you know as soon as we're able!
