Disney Animation has announced the DVD and Blu-ray release date for it’s love letter to gaming and what is considered to be one of the best films of 2012, Wreck-it Ralph.
The film will be released both formats on March 5. However, HD Digital and HD Digital 3D versions will be available about a month earlier on February 12, through various providers.
As far as special features go, the DVD and Blu-ray packages have the standard deleted scenes, director commentary, and making of features, along with the animated short Paperman, and "commercials" for the games that exist in the film’s universe.
Those picking up Wreck-it Ralph on Blu-ray will be treated to the exclusive “Gamer’s Guide to “Wreck-It-Ralph” extra, which will pause the film at specific intervals to show one of 10 specific videos explaining the film’s many video game references.
The standard DVD release will set you back about $30, while the 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (which includes a DVD copy) will cost closer to $40. However, if you want to go all out with the 4-Disc Blu-ray combo pack (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) will cost you $50. The price of the Digital On Demand versions will vary depending on the provider.
This is good news for not only those who love the film but also for those (sigh. Like me) who somehow managed to miss it while it was theaters.
Seriously, you have no idea how happy this makes me. I’m really excited to finally have a second chance to see it. I hope it’s as good as everyone has been telling me.
