Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios have agreed on a multiyear distribution deal that will see the series “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters” and “Transformers: Rescue Bots” brought to DVD in North America.
“We are incredibly excited and look forward to presenting these highly entertaining series on family home entertainment shelves,” Shout! Factory’s founding partners, Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos said in a statement. “Having worked closely with Hasbro Studios on top brands like animated series ‘Transformers Prime,’ ‘G.I. Joe Renegades,’ ‘My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic’ and more, this new opportunity continues to build on our growing success in distributing premier animation and family friendly home entertainment brands in the marketplace.”
This won’t be the last distribution announcement to come from the two companies this year, Shout! Factory added.
“Shout! Factory has been a tremendous partner in maximizing the value of our hit entertainment titles in the kids’ marketplace,” said Hasbro Studios president Stephen Davis. “With their exceptional marketing and distribution prowess, we look forward to more great things from them with the rollout of our next two big franchises.”
