It’s a 4K Ultra HD edition for the little blue guys, but nothing of the like for Disney’s Moana, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Finding Dory (or the entire Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment library for that matter).
That’s the state of the home entertainment business these days as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment manages to find room for a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack edition of director Kelly Asbury’s Smurfs: The Lost Village among its July 11 array of home entertainment product offerings, while Disney continues to be the lone studio holdout. Oh well …
The ARR for that date works out to 95 days and revenues generated from the film’s theatrical run currently stand at $43.7 million.
Also included in the home entertainment launch mix on July 11 are DVD and Blu-ray selections.
As to bonus goodies, filmmaker Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo & Juliet, Shrek 2) provides commentary, there are ten, count’em ten, featurettes — “Kids at Heart! - The Making of Smurfs: The Lost Village,” “Demi Lovato Meets Smurfette,” “Lost Village Dance Along,” “Smurfify Your Nails,” “Baker Smurf's Mini Kitchen,” “How To Draw Smurfette,” “How To Draw Brainy,” “How To Draw Clumsy,” “Making The Song ‘You Will Always Find Me In Your Heart’" and “The Sound of the Smurfs” — and the Meghan Trainor music video titled “I'm A Lady.”
Exclusive to the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray SKUs are deleted scenes and an eleventh featurette titled “The Lost Auditions.”
