A listing for Batman Beyond - The Animated Series has surfaced on Amazon France with a release date of October 30. A Blu-ray upgrade has not yet been announced by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, who in October 2018 premiered Batman: The Complete Animated Series on Blu-ray.
According to the listing on Amazon France, Batman Beyond will be released for the first time on Blu-ray in a four-disc standard edition, priced around $67 USD, and a six-disc Deluxe Edition, priced around $112 USD.
The complete Batman Beyond set will include all 52 episodes across three seasons as well as direct-to-video feature film Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, which saw Batman: The Animated Series star Mark Hamill reprise his role as the Joker. The film was earlier issued as a standalone Blu-ray in 2011.
Amazon France also lists a bonus disc and a total runtime of 1144 minutes.
