“Batman: Mask of the Phantasm”

The 1993 animated feature “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm”,  directed by Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm, is being re-released September 12, 2023 in restored 4K Blu-ray:

“…young ‘Bruce Wayne’ and ‘Andrea Beaumont’ begin a relationship after meeting while visiting their respective parents' graves. During this time, Bruce makes his first attempts at crime-fighting. 

“While he succeeds in foiling robberies, he is discouraged that the criminals do not fear him. Bruce becomes conflicted about how to honor his parents; whether to defend ‘Gotham City’ to avenge their deaths, as opposed to their likely desire to see him as a married man.

“Bruce proposes marriage to Andrea who accepts. However, she abruptly leaves Gotham with her father, businessman ‘Carl Beaumont’, ending the engagement in a ‘Dear John’ letter. Heartbroken, Bruce assumes the mantle of Batman.”
