The first retailer showing its release date is Best Buy, as you can see. It’s already available for PRE-ORDER on 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc. Both releases will come in the form of “combo pack” with the 4K release including a Blu-ray, the Blu-ray release including a DVD, and both getting a Digital Copy of the film included.

Universal has officially announced plans to bring the film “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” to 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray Disc and Blu-ray 3D on September 18th. This news comes this morning in an official announcement from the studio. Tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray include full 4K at 2160p in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with both Dolby Vision and HDR10 varieties of High Dynamic Range and DTS: X sound. The Blu-ray Disc and Blu-ray 3D releases tech specs include full HD at 1080p in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio and DTS: X sound as well. All three versions will be available in a “combo pack” and include a Digital Copy of the film. They all are now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon.
The bonus materials set to be included on the release are pretty lengthy, so they can be found further below, after the break.
This has now been officially confirmed today by HalloweenMovies.com (official website). The package cover art can be found above and disc art can be found below. It appears the release will get both Dolby Vision and HDR10 varieties of High Dynamic Range, while we only see a Dolby audio logo on the disc. That leaves me thinking it will not receive a Dolby Atmos or DTS: X atmospheric mix, and instead likely a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 or 7.1 mix.
UPDATES: This title is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon and Best Buy.
Below, after the break you can find the disc art and more of my original rumor post about this coming to 4K, which turned out to be true.
