When the VHS format was invented and released to the public, it was a modern marvel that changed home theater forever. The VHS tape dominated the home movie market for almost 3 decades, seeing its way through the ‘80s and ‘90s and staying on top through all the changes in hairstyles and boy band preferences. Most of us can remember watching our favorite Disney movies on VHS every Saturday morning.
The South Korean drama, The Young Teacher, was the first film to be released for home VHS consumption. The best selling movie sold on VHS was The Lion King in 1995. 32 million copies were sold, generating 520 million in revenue.
