I don't know if many people have heard of this film but it's one of my childhood favourites.
I was just wondering if anyone has heard of any rumours of it being released on DVD in the forseeable future.
Alas, the chances of this being released on DVD anywhere in the world are slim-to-nil, I'm afraid.
The film was given a rental-only VHS release, in the mid-to-late 1980's, but was never released to buy on VHS either. All the 3D effects and scenes were deleted, making the film a rather poor, bog-standard 2D sci-fi cartoon.
Sorry to be the bringer of bad news. I'd be interested in seeing the 3D version of the film, but only for novelty reasons.
I don't remember ti being particularly good but the version I saw years ago had plenty of 3d generated scenes it , spaceships and what have you. It wasn''t in red/blue offset 3d if thats what you mean.
The 3d stuff in starchaser was if I remember rightly 3d modelled line drawings that were hand coloured (filled in) space ships and mechanical hardedged stuff. A bit like filled in wireframes. You see a nearly identical technique in Akira amongst others.
got it sitting on my video shelf,its one of the rental copies but is in top condition,i love it,i remember my brother and myself watching it loads and thinking it was excellent because of the swear words in it.Best bit was the zombies chasing them...
First time post. Been lurking on these forums for ages and I to have been waiting for Starchaser to come along on DVD. I actually have a vhs copy bought in WHSmiths years ago, but I can confirm it has a DVD release coming up. 21/6/05 in fact.
I also have a vhs of the Flight of Dragons, I may even have bought them at the same time but still waiting for that one.
