SHOUT! Factory Announces THE TRANSFORMERS -THE MOVIE  30th Anniversary Edition

THE TRANSFORMERSTHE MOVIE 30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Special Two-Disc Blu-ray™ and DVD Arrive in Stores Everywhere

September 13, 2016 From Shout! Factory

Good grief, has it really been thirty years since The Transformers – The Movie came out? I still have vivid memories of watching this for the first time in the theater, crying, laughing, cheering, and practically getting up in the aisle and dancing (have I mentioned how much I love the soundtrack?). If you’ve ever wondered why I feel personally betrayed by the Michael Bay Transformers films, it’s because what I really wanted out of those was a live-action version of this movie.

Now longtime fans can rejoice, because this September Shout! Factory is releasing a newly remastered copy of the film in both DVD and Blu-Ray, with lots of fun extras. Click the jump for the full press release on this 30th Anniversary Edition.

The TRANSFORMERSTHE MOVIE has captured a special place in the hearts of millions and has been a staple in the pop culture zeitgeist since 1986.  Featuring memorable characters – the heroic AUTOBOTS, villainous DECEPTICONS and UNICRON – thrilling action and a heartfelt storyline, The TRANSFORMERSTHE MOVIE is a cultural touchstone that spans generations. Beloved by legions of fans, this full-length animated adventure boasts the voice talent of Orson Welles in his final voice acting role, plus an all-star voice cast that includes Peter Cullen, Eric Idle, Casey Kasem, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack and Frank Welker.
