Gravity Falls: The Complete Series is a DVD and Blu-ray box set of Gravity Falls released by Shout! Factory. It was released with two different versions: a regular version with all the episodes on 6 discs, and a collector's edition which includes a bonus disc with brand-new bonus features.[1]

Synopsis

"Welcome To Gravity Falls !

Twin brother and sister Dipper and Mabel Pines are sent to the small town of Gravity Falls, Oregon to spend their summer vacation with their great uncle ("Grunkle") Stan. Upon arrival, Grunkle Stan enlists the siblings' help in running The Mystery Shack, a self-owned tourist trap that overcharges unsuspecting customers. While Dipper has a hard time getting used to his new surroundings, Mabel's upbeat optimism comes in handy in her quest to find true love.

But there may be more to Gravity Falls than meets the eye as Dipper and Mabel encounter strange occurrences and weird creatures. When Dipper stumbles upon an elusive book, he discovers it is the answer to uncovering the town's mysterious happenings. Soon, Dipper and Mabel realize they must rely on each other to navigate this unfamiliar place. Meanwhile, Grunkle Stan guards a secret of his own — one that just might hold the key to unlocking the deeper mystery that is Gravity Falls.

Includes All 40 Episodes!"[1]

Trivia

  • The box set was teased by Alex Hirsch on March 26, 2018 on his Twitter account[2] and officially revealed the following day.[3]

  • This box set makes Gravity Falls the third Disney Television Animation show to be completely released on DVD (after The Weekenders and TaleSpin, though it is the fourth if one also counts the canonical run of Gargoyles), and the first one to be released on Blu-ray.
  • This was released 2 years after the show concluded.
  • TheMysteryOfGF teased a "Totally Rad Edition" of the box set to be sold exclusively on themysteryshack.com. This however was not the case as the box set is unaltered, but comes with a 3' resin Dippy Fresh figurine, exclusive Xyler and Craz pins, and various other items previously sold with a Journal 3 bundle, that are not sold with the box set via Shout Factory.[5]
  • Orders of the Blu-Ray box set from the Shout! Factory website came with an exclusive lithograph. 100 of the lithographs, at random, were signed by Alex Hirsch.[1]
    • The pre-orders from the Shout! Factory website shipped out on July 2, 2018, 22 days ahead of the planned release date.[6] Some of the lithographs were received that day as well.
  • The box set was released on the same day as Gravity Falls: Lost Legends.
  • The box set comes with a copy of the letter that Wendy gave Dipper at the end of "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls."
  • A code on the bottom of the box reads "PINES FOREVER" in Bill's symbol substitution cipher.
  • "Carla I've always loved you but I've never had the guts to say it" also appears at the end of the legal warnings on the bottom of the box, just like at the end of the Tent of Telepathy commercial in "The Hand That Rocks the Mabel."
  • "STAY WEIRD" is written on the back of the box in Bill's symbol substitution cipher on a photograph of a gnome. This is the photograph that also appeared in the opening.
  • The back cover reads:

"Welcome to Gravity Falls! Twelve-year-old twins Dipper and Mabel Pines are sent to the sleepy forest town of Gravity Falls, Oregon to spend their summer vacation with their great uncle ("Grunkle") Stan, a shady, carnival-barker-like con man who forces them to work at the Mystery Shack, Oregon's lowest-rated tourist trap. Although the Shack is filled with hoaxes and fakes, the town itself seems to be hiding a paranormal dark side, with monsters and mysteries around every corner. When Dipper stumbles upon an elusive book hidden in the forest, he realizes it just might hold the secrets to understanding the town. Soon, conspiracy-obsessed Dipper and goofy, carefree Mabel realize they must rely on each other to survive their crazy, new world. Meanwhile, Grunkle Stan guards a secret of his own – one that just might hold the key to unlocking the deeper mystery that is Gravity Falls."
—In bold letters reads: "beware cipher."
