Shout! Factory and Marvel Animation have issued a press release about a new partnership to release DVDs of The Marvel Super Hero Squad Show over the next few years. From the press release:
"We are thrilled with this exciting opportunity to work closely with Marvel Animation, a globally recognized studio for its fantastic productions and pop culture content. This strategic partnership with Marvel continues to build on our continuing success in distributing some of the most premiere brands to the marketplace," stated Shout! Factory founding partners. "The Super Hero Squad Show has become one of the most popular animated series on television. There's a lot of interest from loyal fans, and we plan to do a great job with upcoming releases. We hope that this is just the start of a mutually beneficial relationship."
"We have found a tremendous and passionate partner in Shout! Factory who bring some of the most innovative DVD releases to market, and always with unique bonus features and packaging that deliver the best value to the fans," stated Eric Rollman, President of Marvel Animation. "We have some great ideas for the upcoming Super Hero Squad Show DVDs, and look forward to continuing the Super Hero Squad experience from Cartoon Network to our fans on DVD."
This news excites me to no end as Shout! Factory constantly puts out cartoons in quality DVD packages. Take a look at the current Transformers and G.I. Joe DVD box sets and you'll see what I mean.
I am looking forward to seeing how they will put together a complete season one box set, once the obligatory single disc releases are out, of course.
