The tech specs and bonus materials for the 4K and Blu-ray haven’t been officially announced yet, but, judging from the Disney+ and digital versions of the film, you can expect it to receive HDR10 on the 4K release and Dolby Atmos sound.

Both the 4K and Blu-ray releases will come in the form of “combo pack” meaning that they’ll include their Blu-ray / DVD counterparts (accordingly) and each receives a digital code (copy) of the film. Stay tuned for updates on the official tech specs, bonus materials, and as to when these titles get listed over at Amazon. You can, however, now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray listed for preorder over at retailers Best Buy and Target. Also worth mentioning is the fact that each one of those retailers will be getting an exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray release of the film. Best Buy will be getting a 4K SteelBook (pictured below) and Target will be getting a Limited Edition Gallery Book on 4K (also pictured below).

The 4K it is known from the artwork (pictured above) will come in the form of a “combo pack” with the Blu-ray and a digital code (copy) of the film included. So far, that’s all based on retail sources and has not yet been officially announced by the studio (Warner), making it technically a RUMOR. You can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and the Blu-ray both available for preorder over at Amazon.

“Sonic the Hedgehog” getting 4K SteelBook

sonic_the_hedgehog_4k_steelbook– Amazon Commissions Earned –

The 2020 film adaptation of “Sonic the Hedgehog” will be getting an exclusive SteelBook for the 4K UHD Blu-ray release and the final cover art (as seen above) seems to have been added over at retailer Best Buy. The preorder page previously had a placeholder image that was rather humorous, as seen HERE, and now we get that art. This SteelBook will, it appears, include a mini comic book featuring the original Sonic the Hedgehog (again, as seen above).

It’s as good as time as any to say that I believe that the film should likely be getting released on standard 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray sometime around if not specifically on May 19th. At this point though, take that as a RUMOR, as I’m going on basic retailer placement for it amongst other upcoming home video releases. There’s no info yet regarding the tech specs or bonus materials for the 4K or Blu-ray releases but it is known, from the artwork (pictured below) that they’ll come in the form of “combo pack” – meaning that the 4K will get its Blu-ray counterpart, the Blu-ray will get its DVD counterpart, and each will include a digital code (copy) of the film. Finally, you can find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc releases listed for preorder over at Amazon. Stay tuned for when this title gets an official announcement.
