Space Jam is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray in July

Amazon Commissions Earned

The 1996 film “Space Jam” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on July 6th via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The film, directed by Joe Pytka, featured NBA legend Michael Jordan as well as the Looney Tunes animated characters. In addition to that, the cast also featured Wayne Knight, Theresa Randle, the voice of Danny DeVito, plus Bill Murray, and NBA players Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, and Patrick Ewing as themselves. The tech specs for the 4K release include a 2160p video presentation with HDR10 form of high dynamic range, while the audio presentation has not yet been detailed. I’m waiting to hear back directly from Warner regarding if this contains Dolby Atmos or simply a lossless 5.1 surround sound mix and I hope to have an update on that for you very soon.

The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that you’ll get the Blu-ray Disc counterpart and a digital code (copy) of the film. UPDATE: The 4K UHD Blu-ray now has a placeholder page over at Amazon, but still is not yet a functional preorder listing. Stay tuned for an update on that. The release will include the following previously released extras.

  • Commentary from director Joe Pytka, Bugs Bunny (voiced by Billy West) and Daffy Duck (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker)
  • Featurette: “Jammin” with Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan
  • Music videos including Seal’s “Fly Like an Eagle” and Monstars’ anthem “Hit ‘Em High”

Below, after the break, you can find the full details regarding this upcoming 4K release of the film.
