The first three “Toy Story” CG animated films from Pixar are finally coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on June 4th via Disney. These include “Toy Story“ (1995), “Toy Story 2“ (1999), and “Toy Story 3“ (2010).

All three films will come in the form of “combo pack” with Blu-ray Disc(s) and a digital copy included. The bonus materials haven’t been detailed but I’d say you can expect them to be identical to the previous releases on Blu-ray, which likely will include most all of original the extras. There’s no confirmation yet on that, just speculation. Stay tuned for more details as they develop regarding these films.
All three of the standard 4K UHD Blu-ray “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” releases are available for pre-order over at Best Buy. There are pre-order listings now available over at Amazon for “Toy Story“, “Toy Story 2“ and “Toy Story 3“ individually.

There will also be 4K UHD Blu-ray Steelbook releases for each film that will be Best Buy Exclusives. You can find the pre-order listings for those Steelbooks below by clicking on the artwork for each film.
