Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Night of the Animated Dead through digital retailers Sept. 21, and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Oct. 5.
An animated reimagining of George A. Romero’s 1968 horror classic Night of the Living Dead, Animated Dead includes exclusive scenes not included in the original film. The voice cast includes Josh Duhamel, Dulé Hill, Katharine Isabelle, James Roday Rodriguez, Katee Sackhoff, Will Sasso, Jimmi Simpson and Nancy Travis.
The story involves a group of strangers in Pennsylvania taking refuge in an abandoned farmhouse during a zombie attack. Together, the group must fight to stay alive against the oncoming horde of zombies while also confronting their own fears and prejudices.
Bonus features include a “Making of the Animated Dead” featurette in which director Jason Axinn and producer Michael Luisi discuss the process of honoring the iconic classic with their vision for an animated remake, including scene breakdowns and booth recordings with the cast.
