The release date for the 2-disk 4k Ultra HD and Blu-Ray edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has finally been announced on Blu-Ray.com.

The combo 2 disc Blu-Ray edition of Fantastic Beasts will release on April 11th, 2017, and – as we reported in our coverage of Amazon Pre-Order details, will boast the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and HD UltraViolet digital copy formats of the film:

“In addition to the standard releases, Warner Bros. have also commissioned a 3D Blu-ray edition, which is priced at $29.99 in the U.S. and £19.99 in the U.K. The 3D set comes with additional Blu-ray, DVD and Ultraviolet HD copy of the film. However, remember that in order to use the 3D Blu-Ray, you must be in possession of a 3D Blu-Ray player. There are some things that not even magic can rectify!

In a groundbreaking move, Warner Bros. have also decided to commission an all-new 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray edition of the film, priced at $29.99 in the U.S. and £24.99 in the U.K. 4K Ultra HD is classed as the next generation of Blu-Ray technology, offering movie buffs the very best movie experience in terms of audio and visual quality. The technology has been around in cinemas and on Television since 2012, although it is only now in 2016 that we are seeing 4K films go on sale, with Fantastic Beasts becoming one of the pioneers!”

The Fantastic Beasts DVD is priced at $17.99 in the U.S. and £9.99 in the U.K., while the Blu-Ray combo pack soars in at $29.99 in the U.S. These preorder prices are, however, far cheaper than the original listing prices of between $35-40!
