Warcraft Blu-Ray Pegged For September Release, Comes Packing 90 Minutes Of Special Features

Legendary and Universal have today nailed down plans to bring Warcraft, Duncan Jones’ lavish fantasy tentpole, to home video in September.

Launching first via Digital HD on September 13, Warcraft will then expand to Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, 4K Ultra HD, DVD and On Demand on September 27. It’ll come packing 90 minutes of special features, too, meaning you can delve into the rich history of Azeroth and, specifically, how it was transferred onto the silver screen in great detail.

Despite its mooted box office take on home turf, the film’s immense international haul has sparked chatter of a sequel, and Jones himself recently admitted that he’s hopeful Legendary and Universal can engineer a follow-up.

However that may be, you can find an overview of the bonus content included in the film’s Blu-ray release, below.
