Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released its initial non-exclusive clip from “Batman: Death in the Family,” WBHE’s first-ever venture into interactive storytelling that allows fans to choose where the story goes through an innovative navigation guided by the viewer’s remote control. Central to the extended-length short is an adaptation of “Batman: A Death in the Family,” the 1988 landmark DC event where fans voted by telephone to determine the story’s ending.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, “Batman: Death in the Family” serves as the anchor for an anthology of 2019-2020 animated shorts – including “Sgt. Rock,” “Adam Strange,” “Death” and “The Phantom Stranger.” The set arrives from WBHE on Blu-ray and Digital starting October 13, 2020.
The interactive component is only available on the Blu-ray. The Digital version of “Batman: Death in the Family” offers four fully-played out linear versions of the short.
