I’ve been fortunate to have a chat with Hugh from Madman Entertainment, the company which holds the distribution rights for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in Australia, about the upcoming localized DVD release of My Little Pony.
Starting June 20th Madman Entertainment will be releasing Season 1 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in its entirety as a five-volume DVD collection, containing five episodes per volume in proper air-date order. Each DVD will be Region 4 in PAL format with 5.1 surround sound and unfortunately will not include any special features at this stage.
Volume #1, ‘Friendship Changes Everything‘, will contain episodes 1 through 5, while volume #2, ‘That’s What Friends Are For‘, will include episodes 6 – 10. Three as-yet-unnamed volumes will round out the DVD releases for season 1.
An exclusive Collector’s Box will be available from Madman’s online store; it includes Volume 1 and will provide enough room for the other four volumes and contain some other Pony presents (to be confirmed). Individual volumes will have a recommended retail price of AUD$19.95 and the collector’s box will be priced at AUD$29.95. ■
