From the I Told You So Dept.: a 30th Anniversary release of 1986's animated The Transformers: The Movie will be coming to home video in September according to the official Transformers Facebook page. No details are available yet except that the film has again been fully remastered. It's extremely unlikely that they would skip an HD Blu-Ray release of this version. Keep reading to see the package art! UPDATED with further details from SuperHeroHype!
The full-length animated adventure boasts the voice talent of Orson Welles in his final role and an all-star voice cast that includes Peter Cullen, Eric Idle, Casey Kasem, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack and Frank Welker. The announcement was made today by Shout! Factory’s founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos; and Hasbro’s Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer Stephen Davis.
The multi-year alliance provides Shout! Factory with exclusive home entertainment packaged media (Blu-ray and DVD) and select digital rights to Hasbro’s Transformers – The Movie for home entertainment releases in North America. In honor of the 30th anniversary of Transformers – The Movie, the beloved animated feature will be newly remastered and transferred in HD from the original 35mm elements. A full-range of bonus content and collectible packaging are currently in development. Shout! Factory plans an aggressive rollout of Transformers – The Movie 30th Anniversary Edition on September 13, 2016.
The Transformers: The Movie was released in 1986 and starred Judd Nelson, Lionel Stander, Robert Stack, Eric Idle, Orson Welles, and Leonard Nimoy. It was released in the final week of Howard The Duck's theatrical release; the notorious bomb outperformed it. However, its constant availability during the VHS years has caused many - many Transformers fans at least - to reconsider the film. This will be the first HD release of TFTM in the US; other regions' releases have been known to fetch frightening prices on eBay.
