Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph has been praised by gamers and non-gamers alike for its loving tribute to gaming’s 8-bit days. While the film is still enjoying a very successful theatrical run, Disney has announced that it’ll be available as a digital download and on Blu-ray and DVD soon.
In a first for the company, Wreck-It Ralph will be available to download digitally more than a month before it’s Blu-ray/DVD counterpart. If downloading movies from iTunes or Amazon Video is your thing, you’ll be able to own Wreck-It Ralph on February 12.
However, if you’d prefer to wait for the Blu-ray/DVD, it’ll be released on March 5 in three different packages:
- Ultimate Collector’s Edition ($49.99): Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy + Special Features
- Collector’s Edition ($39.99): Blu-ray, DVD + Special Features
- DVD Edition ($29.99): DVD + Special Features
Each version of the film will come packed with a variety of special features, including the Paperman short film that played before Wreck-It Ralph in theaters. You can read up on all the special features after the break.
