For the first-time ever this complete animated series, that includes 23 full-length episodes and 46 original Jackson 5ive, is available to fans everywhere! With 2 complete songs in each episode you can join Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael and on tour, laughing at their crazy adventures and singing your heart out along the way. Groovy!
Last December we brought you the heads-up that The Jackson 5ive – The Completed Animated Series was coming to DVD in 2012. As it turns out, that’s a little bit wrong…on two counts! According to new pre-order listings at Amazon.com, Classic Media (a division of Dreamworks Animation since being bought this past summer) is releasing it not only on DVD, but high-def Blu-ray Disc, too! And it won’t make it before the end of the year, unfortunately, but the listings show a street date soon into the new year: January 15th!
It’s priced at $32.99 SRP for the DVD, and $39.99 SRP for the Blu-ray version. We’re not positive, but we THINK the Blu-ray release will actually be a Blu/DVD Combo pack…and if that’s accurate, then it would explain why the DVD release is shown at Amazon to be 2 discs, but the BD version is on 4 discs. No other details are available yet, however, and we don’t have box art yet either. Stay tuned for updates, of course. Our thanks to eagle-eyed reader Michael Wagner for his note alerting us to these listings!
