Australian 'King of the Railway' DVD release delayed

King of the Railway's Australian DVD release date has been pushed back for a month, it has been confirmed.

The country was to be second in line to receive the disc a mere two days after the UK's September 2nd date.

However, ABC Shop's Twitter account have subsequently responded to a tweet concerning a release date projected by EZYDVD.

The original release date has been rescheduled to the 2nd of October. Hoyts hosted the cinematic world premiere of the special in July.

King of the Railway: The Movie from ABC for Kids hits Australian DVD shelves at the new date of October 2nd.

Thanks to Thomas Stansfield for the alert.


  1. Ugh. I'm TIRED of my country being the last in line to receive epic movies... first BMM, now this. The movie's obviously ready and surely the same could be said for the special features. Oh well, at least the UK still get it first like they properly do.

    1. Actually, that's what is really weird about the delay. The Aus version is the same as the UK one, yet it's released a month after

    2. Another weird thing is that the movie ends on September 17th at Hoyts cinemas. What is wrong with releasing it later on in September then releasing it in October?

  2. Acturlly New Zealand will be the 2nd to recive the movie on dvd as it comes out on the 25th of Speptember here
