Back in March, 2007, Genius Entertainment released Kong: The Animated Series - The Animated Series Gift Set
, a 5-disc collection of all 40 episodes of the regular series plus the CGI full-length film Kong: Return To The Jungle
. Genius distributed the set for BKN International, and apparently their license agreement has expired.
This past December BKN signed with Image Entertainment
, and Image has now announced that they are re-issuing the box set on June 30th
. The content appears to be identical, and the price a bit lower at $24.98 SRP. Image isn't providing box art yet, so we don't know if the packaging will differ or not. Image will also re-release BKN's Highlander: The Animated Series - The Complete Series
at the beginning of the same month; see our separate story for details.
