Few movies capture the 1980’s in a way that Tranformers: The Movie did in 1986. This year marks the animation feature film’s 35th anniversary, an event Shout! Factory is using to debut the film on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for the first time.
Mark August 3rd, 2021 on your calendar as that is the date Tranformers: The Movie will make its 4K debut. It features a new 4K transfer and restoration from the original 35mm film elements with HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
The standard and limited edition Steelbook releases features new art by comic artist Matt Ferguson.
This was a a real passion project for me.
