RUMOR: “Incredibles 2” 4K and Blu-ray release date leak, plus the exclusives
EDITORIAL NOTE: This is considered a RUMOR and should only “be taken with a grain of salt” so-to-speak. Wait for the official announcement from the studio later in the year for the solid (set in stone) release date.
I know, It seems the rumors have been flying around a bit much lately, but we have ourselves yet another one. Thanks to my co-writer (Brendan) noticing a retailer (we will not name) making a slip-up, and leaking the release date, we can tell you when you can LIKELY expect Brad Bird‘s 2018 sequel “Incredibles 2” on 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc. The date my co-writer claims to have seen was “9/14” – September 14th. This would technically come on a Friday, not a traditional Tuesday release. Disney and some other studios have actually done this over the years, so I wouldn’t rule it out as being the case.
However, the traditional (Tuesday) release date is 9/11 – if the date before-mentioned was perhaps removed, because it was incorrect, well then that actually perhaps is the release date? Keep that in mind, but as always with RUMORS, take it ALL also “with a grain of salt,” and wait for an official announcement from the studio (Disney).
Further below, after the break, I’ll be going over all the pre-orders of exclusive versions available at retailers. These are all up and official, just don’t put them together with our RUMORED release date. OK? OK. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Moving on.
Alright, now with that RUMOR bit out of the way, let me move on the the really interesting stuff, to me anyway, the retailer EXCLUSIVES that Disney has decided to dish out for the film. Almost ALL, if not all, of these are already available for PRE-ORDER (at the respective retailers).
So let’s first (alphabetically) start with Best Buy and their exclusive for “Incredibles 2.” This one really peaks my interest (personally). A Steelbook (pictured above) for 4K UHD Blu-ray release that will come in the form of a “combo pack” with Blu-ray Disc and Digital HD copy included. That exclusive 4K Steelbook is now available for PRE-ORDER.
Second, we have Target, who seems to have got a good amount of exclusives for the film. They have a 4K UHD Blu-ray exclusive storybook packaging release, which is available for PRE-ORDER (pictured above). They also have a 4K UHD Blu-ray with an exclusive figurine of “Metallic Jack-Jack” bundle, also available for PRE-ORDER (pictured below),
I couldn’t find any exclusives yet over at Walmart but I’ll try to keep an eye out on that, to see if there are any, and if so update.
Lastly, I think Amazon MIGHT have this film on 4K available for pre-order… I’ll try to get around to checking it in due time. Maybe it will give them time to reflect on the fact there are other actual retailers out there, they haven’t put of out business.
