The collection matches the packaging style of the first three volumes, with a fold-out configuration to house the discs, plus an 80-page hardbound book on the history and impact of the films, which also come with more than 30 hours of new and archival extras. Each film is presented in 4K resolution with Dolby Vision DHR, and five of the films have all-new Dolby Atmos mixes (all but His Girl Friday).

A special bonus disc will also include the complete “Starman” TV series, which ran 22 episodes during the 1986-87 season. The show will be presented exclusively in HD on a 4K disc to maximize space.

The boxed set will include digital copy access codes for all six films, which will also be available for purchase separately at digital retailers in 4K with HDR.
