“Jumanji” Releasing For The First Time on 4K Ultra HD on December 5, 2017!
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing Jumanji on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on December 5, 2017. It has tons of extra features and I am excited!
Jumanji is a classic and I’ve rewatched it countless times. This year, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing Jumanji for the very first time on 4K Ultra HD and re-releasing it on Blu-ray with tons of extra features. The timing is great as it’ll allow fans to revisit the family classic before the release of reboot/sequel Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on December 20, 2017.
The 4K Ultra HD release includes “Dolby Atmos audio. The title has been fully restored in 4K from the original camera negative for a pristine picture, presented in full 4K resolution with HDR. The 4K restoration also serves as the basis for the 1080p HD presentation on Blu-ray.”
Here’s the official synopsis:
Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst and Bonnie Hunt star in this phenomenal adaptation of the award-winning children’s book. When young Alan Parrish discovers a mysterious board game, he doesn’t realize its unimaginable powers, until he is magically transported before the startled eyes of his friend, Sarah, into the untamed jungles of Jumanji! There he remains for 26 years until he is freed from the game’s spell by two unsuspecting children. Now a grown man, Alan (Williams) reunites with Sarah (Hunt) and together with Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce) tries to outwit the game’s powerful forces in this imaginative adventure that combines breathtaking special effects with an enchanting mixture of comedy, magic and thrills.
Jumanji has an approximate run time of 104 minutes. It is rated PG for mild language and menacing fantasy action.
The new bonus features include:
- Sneak peek of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
- Never-before-seen Deleted Scenes
- Hilarious Gag Reel featuring Robin Williams and the cast
