Warner Archive is a service that WB began in the latter days of the DVD format to make harder to find catalog films available to fans. It’s a disc-on-demand service where you order something and they produce a copy for you. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is easily one of the higher profile releases they’ve done so far, which means demand is going to be pretty high for the disc when it becomes available next month.
