I was a huge fan of Thor: Ragnarok. It earned a Top 5 spot on my list of Marvel Studios films. I’ve been eagerly anticipating the announcement of the home video release and the bonus features. Walt Disney released that information today with the official Thor: Ragnarok Blu Ray details.
It’s probably no surprise Ragnarok is arriving on digital platforms the Tuesday after Black Panther’s opening weekend. [Side note: Got your tickets yet?] Walt Disney and Marvel Studios know exactly how to get their fans excited and keep the momentum rolling from one project to the next.
For the rest of us, the Ragnarok Blu-Ray release of March 6 allows us more than enough time to watch Black Panther a few more times. Here’s all the details:
Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, the God of Thunder’s third installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, electrified both audiences and critics alike reaching over $845M at the global box office. Now the colorful cosmic adventure, loaded with action, humor, drama and spectacle, bursts into homes Digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™, and Movies Anywhere, on Feb. 20 and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on March. 6.
In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his home world and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett). But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) – and grapple with his silver-tongued adopted brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the fierce warrior Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and the eccentric Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).
Fans who bring home the Ultimate Cinematic Universe Edition (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital) of Thor: Ragnarok will experience all the thunderous action and lightning-fast wit in stunning 4K Ultra HD with next-generation high dynamic range (HDR) visuals and Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
Exclusive, never-before-seen bonus features include deleted scenes; hilarious outtakes; an exclusive short: part three of the mockumentary Team Thor, retitled Team Darryl and featuring an eccentric new roommate; the evolution of MCU’s heroes culminating in Avengers: Infinity War; numerous making-of featurettes which explore the unique vision of director Taika Waititi; the story’s unstoppable women; the effortlessly charismatic Korg; the tyrannical leader of Sakaar, the Grandmaster; and the film’s comic-book origins; audio commentary by Waititi; and more.
Maybe not too surprisingly, I’m most excited about the MCU heroes to Infinity War featurette. This should just about keep me occupied until May 4.
