Storks On Its Way From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment As A Four-SKU Array Of Home Entertainment Products On Dec. 20

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has decided that the directing team of Nicholas Stoller and Doug Sweetland’s CGI-generated animated hit, Storks, will be making a pre-Christmas landing after all.  

As a well-past, post-Labor Day theatrical release — with $70 million in domestic box office receipts — this looked certain to be heading for a Q1’17 release window, but instead it joins the studio’s Sully — in a classic one-two product rollout — on Dec. 20.    The ARR is a quick-to-market 88 days.

Planned for delivery to retail in time for last minute shoppers to add to their carts will be a four-SKU array of product offerings.   Included in the Stork selections are a stand-alone DVD edition, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, a double-disc Blu-ray SKU featuring 3D and 2D viewing options and a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack.    Whew, that’s a mouthful.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyAs to bonus goodies, common to all home entertainment release configurations are the LEGO Ninjago short film, The Master, and the Jason Derulo music video, “Kiss the Sky.”

Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD products feature commentary from Stoller (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Sweetland (Oscar-nominated for his 2009 short film, Presto), deleted scenes (with a commentary option), outtakes and the featurette titled “Storks: Guide to Your New Baby.”
