The Transformers: The Movie will be issued in a limited-edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Steelbook from Shout! Factory, in collaboration with eOne, a Hasbro company, on Aug. 3, in time for the film’s 35th anniversary.
The packaging features new key art by celebrated comic artist Matt Ferguson. The release also includes an all-new 4K transfer of the movie in widescreen with HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, the film in HD full frame on Blu-ray, immersive bonus content including never-before-seen feature-length storyboards, plus four exclusive art cards.
The 4K edition will include new bonus materials such as feature-length storyboards, including deleted, alternate and extended sequences; and the Fathom Events 30th anniversary featurette, including Stan Bush’s acoustic performances of “The Touch” and “Dare.” The combo pack will also include previously released extras including the “‘Til All Are One” retrospective documentary, audio commentary, legacy featurettes, animated storyboards, and trailers and TV spots.
Fans who pre-order from shoutfactory.com will also receive a limited-edition 18×24-inch lithograph with new art by Ferguson, while supplies last.
On Sept. 28, Shout! Factory will issue two additional 35th anniversary editions of The Transformers: The Movie: a standard 4K UHD + Blu-ray combo pack and a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack.
The standard 4K edition includes the all-new 4K transfer of the movie in widescreen along with the HD full frame version and new bonus material. The full-length storyboards and Fathom featurette are exclusive to the 4K editions.
The Blu-ray + DVD combo pack is a reissue of the 30th anniversary combo pack, featuring the movie in HD full frame on Blu-ray as well as a widescreen edition on DVD, and new box art.
These configurations will be available for pre-order later this summer from Shout! Factory.
Under license from Shout! Factory, The Transformers: The Movie Steelbook and standard 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays will also be released in the United Kingdom this September.
