The 3-disc set will include all three films in the trilogy in just their 4K versions only with no Blu-ray Disc counterparts. Digital copies of the films are said to be included. I’m not sure if this means these will lack bonus materials or not, as they are housed on the Blu-ray Disc for the first film. The first film, originally released back in 1999, is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. So, that’s likely the marketing choice made here by Warner. Considering the rather expensive price tag, I think only the ultimate fans will be making a purchase of the set. That being said, the 4K Steelbook set is now available for pre-order over at Best Buy.
It may have just hit theaters but the 2019 live-action version of “Dumbo” from Disney is already listed to be coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc later this year.

No info about the release date has been announced yet, but you can expect it to come out likely around June – based on its placement at retailers. Stay tuned for any further details regarding this release in the future.
