Emily of New Moon Complete Fourth Season, Complete Series

More Emily of New Moon DVD news! According to a post on TVShowsonDVD.com, Emily of New Moon: The Complete Fourth Season will be released on DVD in Canada on 20 July 2010! In the United States, Echo Bridge Home Entertainment will continue with The Complete Third Season, The Complete Fourth Season, and The Complete Series, all available on 1 June.

I frequently get messages from people asking when the rest of the series will be released on DVD, so I’m happy to spread the word, especially since the latter two seasons of Emily of New Moon aired sporadically on the CBC more than three years (2002-2003) after the first two seasons (1998-1999) did.

Emily of New Moon Cover Art, Plus Season Three

As a follow-up to my earlier post about this spring’s re-release of the first two seasons of the television series Emily of New Moon, I’m pleased to spread the news that the cover art for both seasons has been revealed and that the third season will be released on DVD on 22 June 2010. No news yet on the abbreviated fourth season of the series, but at this rate hopefully we will see that DVD set as well later this summer.

Anne in Japan

Symian Days has posted two blog posts on Anne of Green Gables in Japan: “Little ‘Red Hair Anne’” and “‘Red Hair Anne’ Strikes Again.” Thanks to Yuka for sending these my way.

Also, I have read reports that the 1979 animation Akage no An, which to the best of my knowledge has never been dubbed into English (correct me if I’m wrong), will be or has been released on DVD in French. I will post again once I receive confirmation and all the ordering details.
