New World Zorro DVD Set Product Information

The product page for the DVD set for all four seasons of the New World Zorro series has finally been updated with information about what is on the set. We knew that the set was supposed to contain the unreleased original pilot and extra scenes that never aired, but the product page finally confirms this information.

Zorro: The Complete Series

This is the editorial information from the product page, and I have added a number of omitted quotation marks so that the text reads better.
Out of the night a hero must rise with courage that even a mask can't disguise! So begins the adventures of Zorro swordsman, scientist and relentless defender of the oppressed.

In early 19th century Spanish California, a corrupt Alcalde (mayor) grows rich by terrorizing the good people of Los Angeles. Young and dashing Don Diego de la Vega (Duncan_Regehr), pretending to care only for science and study, secretly creates a bold alter-ego: Zorro the Fox. Aided by his mute servant Felipe, inspired by the faith of the beautiful tavern-keeper Victoria, and carried into battle by the mighty steed Toronado, Zorro thwarts the Alcalde's plots at every turn.

Filmed entirely in Madrid, Spain, Zorro aired on The Family Channel for four seasons, from 1990-1993. Still a tremendous fan favorite, Zorro is renowned for its swashbuckling family-friendly adventure as well as its top-notch cast of featured characters and guests, including Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Don Alejandro de la Vega, Daniel Craig, Andre the Giant, Philip Michael Thomas, Jesse Ventura and Adam West.

For the first time ever, all 88 episodes have been collected in one DVD set, including a bonus disk with classic Zorro films, an alternate series pilot and much more.

BONUS DISC:
The legend of Zorro truly begins in 1919, with the publication of Johnston McCulley's story, The Curse of Capistrano. A year later, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford produced The Mark of Zorro with Fairbanks as the title character as the inaugural film for their new studio, United Artists. Since then, the character has inspired more than 40 films and nearly a dozen TV series. The Zorro Archives includes some of the masked defender s most influential appearances as well as rare behind-the-scenes material from the 1990 series.

BONUS FEATURES: THE ZORRO ARCHIVES
The Mark of Zorro starring Douglas Fairbanks the original full-length silent film that defined the swashbuckler genre

Terrific educational, family-friendly show. Also very funny. Zorro Rides. My favourite show of all time. Kudos to Zorro Production Inc and A&E Video for including the 1920 silent film
"The Mark Of Zorro" in this set. In addition to the series, we'll also get the movie that started it all, plus the original unaired pilot for the series.

I'm from Spain. I saw this series as a child by the channel TVE. Have you got the DVD edition and I am happy. I hope the DVDs are also sold in Spain in Spanish. Congratulations!

the series is much much much better than the recent Zorro films with Banderas.

Only a little over a month remaining and the greatest incarnation of Zorro (in my opinion anyway) will finally be on DVD.

Amazon just dropped the price of the complete series to $69.99. It already adjusted for my pre-order. Sweet!
Buy now in case the price goes up again. (The individual seasons lowered in price as well)

The series was released in France, but the DVDs are in the French language, which is not helpful to those of us who want an English release. Additionally, the DVDs are region 2, which cannot be played in North America.
