If you were excited about the October 11th release of Shout Factory's Jem and the Holograms: The Truly Outrageous Complete Series 11-disc set, just wait until you hear about all the glamorous bonus material!
As reported at Gay.net, Shout Factory producer Brian Ward recently gave fans a detailed description of the outrageous extras that have been included in the box set via the studio's official message board.
According to Ward's post we can expect to find the following:
1.) Showtime, Synergy! The Truly Outrageous Creation of an '80s Icon This is a featurette, well over a half hour, focusing on the creation of the show. For this particular featurette, we talked with Christy Marx, naturally, Roger Slifer, Joe Bacal, Tom Griffin, Will Meugniot, Barry Harman and Britta Phillips.
2.) Glamour & Glitter: The Voice Cast Looks Back This featurette focuses solely on voicing the show. Christy talks about the casting and we also spoke with Samantha Newark, Patricia Albrecht and Michael Sheehan.
3.) Jem Girls (and Boys!) Remember This featurette focuses on the fans of Jem and the Holograms. Several of you are in it, along with a few web-celeb fans like Clare Grant and Milynn Sarley from "Team Unicorn," entertainment reporter Jenna Busch and DVD Geeks co-host Mary Czerwinski. Some may also know Clare as Seth Green's wife.
Animated Storyboards Five sets of animated storyboards, including two versions of the opening titles and three music videos. These storyboards were generously donated by artists Will Meugniot and Keith Tucker.
Original Commercials There are several original commercials included here.
Video Jukebox Feature This is a standard select your favorite music video function. They are additional encodes and not mere authoring tricks, simply taking you to those chapters, so you shouldn't experience any delays as the player is trying to find the appropriate chapters. Each disc has this function. Note: This is the ONLY bonus feature available outside of the complete series set. The other bonus features are exclusive to that 11th bonus disc.
DVD-Rom There are a few DVD-Rom goodies available, all printable, including the complete Writers Bible donated by Christy Marx. The others will have to remain a secret for those wanting to have a little something to be excited about."
