Warner Home Entertainment is preparing a direct to video follow up to the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie with The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning with a new cast.
When mischievous teenaged cousins Bo Duke and Luke Duke are arrested, both boys are paroled to the care of their Uncle Jesse in Hazzard, sentenced to a summer of hard work. It’s not long before the Duke boys learn of Boss Hogg’s plans to foreclose on Uncle Jesse’s farm. Together, with help from their frumpy cousin Daisy, Bo and Luke vow to save the family’s property and its storied history of producing the best moonshine in all of Hazzard. Driving through Hazzard in the General Lee blasting its famed Dixie horn, the Duke boys join forces to make Boss Hogg’s life miserable, concocting one crazy scheme after another.
The DVD comes with a trailer, a music video and the featurettes The New Dukes, Daisy’s Dukes, The Birth of the General Lee, A Moment wih Uncle Jesse and Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane.
An unrated cut of the film will be released at the same time with extra footage and the additional featurettes The Duke Boys in Drag and Meeting Dainty Hogg.
