The ’60s Batman live-action series is making a comeback into home video… and this time it’ll be returning as an original animated movie called Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. We’ll get to see Batman and Robin in their prime as they face off against the Joker, Penguin and Riddler and Catwoman. To make this even sweeter, Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar will be reprising their roles as the voice of Batman, Robin and Catwoman, respectively. Check out the new trailer that’s released by Warner Bros below.

The movie will be coming to Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on November 1, 2016. The Digital HD release will be available on October 11, 2016.

Synopsis: It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. The four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. Holy Multiplication Tables!

The film is directed by Rick Morales (Lego DC Comic Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash) and written by Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!) and James Tucker (Justice League vs Teen Titans).

Here are the Blu-ray bonuses:

  • “Those Dastardly Desperados” featurette – Joker, Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler are impossible not to watch! Those Dastardly Desperados explores how these fiends became more than just antagonists in a Batman story; they became icons in American pop culture.
  • “A Classic Cadre of Voices” featurette – A new talented cast of actors join Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar in Batman: Return of The Caped Crusaders. Go behind the scenes and witness the vocal techniques and timing needed to deliver a classic Bat-Comedy!
