International Availability for the New World Zorro DVD Sets


Many people have asked about whether the New World Zorro DVDs are available internationally.  While this is strictly a North American release, nothing should prevent anyone from anywhere in the world from buying the sets.  However, be aware that you must have a DVD player that will play the DVDs.  The DVDs are region 1, and region 1 discs cannot be played in Europe and elsewhere.

Some people have the misconception that it is not possible to order the DVDs if one is outside the United States.  Someone else checked and stated that Amazon did not prevent the DVDs from being placed in the shopping cart.  All that Amazon did was warn that the DVDs were region 1 and that the buyer was not located in region 1.  If buyers can play region 1 discs, then ordering should not be a problem.

Sellers are now selling the New World Zorro DVDs on eBay at bargain prices.  I would be very wary of such listings.  You have no guarantee as to whether the sellers are selling the actual DVD release.  The sellers could be selling the usual bootlegs but using the photos of the DVD release in order to make buyers believe that what would be received are the actual DVDs.

One auction has an expected arrival date of between January 12 and January 21.  How is this possible when the set is not to be released until January 25?  I do not suggest bidding, even though $4.99 appears to be a great deal.  It appears to be too good of a deal.

I suggest buying from Amazon rather than from eBay, because you are guaranteed good service and are also guaranteed not to receive bootlegs.

Here in Europe we do have multi region players so region 1 is no problem. It is a different matter with computer dvd drives as you nearly always have to pay to convert. I have just recieved the full set via amazon.uk

Here in France, we have dvd of the New World's Zorro tv series since 2004.. But only the first three seasons (75 episodes... The final seasons (the last 13 episodes have not been dubbed in French nor published)
the order of the episodes is different too:
Episodes 1-8 to 1-11 (the origin story in 4 parts) are the first four episodes, 1-15 is 5, 1-1 is 6 etc...

the series spans 15 discs but:
dvd 1 to 3 have each 2 episodes
dvd 4 to 14 have each 6 episodes
disc 15 (final)... 4 episodes.
Don't say why.. Dvd 1-3 could make a dvd of 6 episoes like 4-14 but Ben J production, editor of the French dvd version, had think otherwise.
