B5 DVD artwork

Interesting, any idea how the site got their hands on it?

It's quite nice.

I don't think it was hard to find ... it has been on Amazon's site ever since they announced it (or pretty close at least). You can even see a larger version of it here:

PS: I agree that it does look nice ... can't wait until it comes out.

I think of my beautiful city in flames, Lennier. The streets where I walked. The temples, great crystal spirals, which sighed music whenever the wind touched. I think of it and I cry... --Delenn

It's the same for the Australian release on the 21st November.

That we fight for our nation,
Against a darkness that we forever see."
Warner Bros. posted the artwork and the disc specs on a private industry-only website a couple of weeks after Amazon.com (prematurely) started taking pre-orders. (The original Amazon listing had no picture.) The site is password protected and can only by accessed by Warner Home Video personnel, dealers, distributors and writers who cover the industry. Bill Hunt of The Digital Bits runs an established DVD News site, so he has access to the WHV private site and was able to download the image once it was posted. (As were Peter M. Bracke of The DVD File.com and numerous others.)

The artwork itself was created for TNT's original B5 advertising campaign for the series. It was featured on posters, billboards, and the sides of buses, as well as full-page ads in TV Guide and other magazines. I have a copy of the poster version (you can just make it out in one of the pictures here: My Personal Photos Page.)

The poster text reads:

Turner Network Television Unveils
World Premiere Movie
In the Beginning
Sunday January 4
8 PM (ET)
Watch BABYLON 5 Mondays-Fridays at 7 PM (ET)
(Read the official Babylon 5 books from Del Rey)

The same artwork was used for the VHS and laserdisc releases of In the Beginning.

And if I recall correctly, it was also on the VCD version.

So it seems that they chose to use the cover art they have always used. A very Vorlon thing to do. Let us just hope that the disks get a sufficiently enhusiastic reception for WB to proceed with the series and preferably even do it quickly.

Well, a Vorlon thing to do or not, I like it; it's simple but cool.
(And I'll take whatever cover art I can get.)
