41 Entertainment (41e) has teamed with Phase 4 Films and its kids division, kaboom! Entertainment, on the home entertainment distribution of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, slated for broadcast this fall.
Phase 4 Films will offer DVD and Blu-ray Discs, and manage electronic sellthrough rights for the title in the United States and Canada.
“Phase 4 Films’ label, kaboom! Entertainment, is one of the leading brands in kids and family entertainment in North America,” said Allen Bohbot, CEO of 41e. “They are one of the few independent studios with significant direct retail and EST relations in both the U.S. and Canadian markets. We welcome them to the continuously growing list of great partners on Pac-Man.”
Berry Meyerowitz, president and CEO of Phase 4, added: “We know this TV series will be well received by kids and their parents who know the character so well. It is exciting that for the very first time audiences will be able view and experience the animation on 2D and 3D disks or download it onto their PC, tablet or mobile device. It is incredibly rewarding to bring this iconic brand to consumers via new technology.”
