Since the credits rolled on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters, I’ve been eager to get my hands on the blu-ray release so I can pour over it again and again in the comfort of my own home. Today, we have some official information on when that will happen. August 22, 2017 is when the latest Marvel film will arrive on DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K (but will arrive digitally August 8th if you can’t wait).
This marks the first ever release from Disney in the latest high-resolution format, which could signal the floodgates are about to open at the house of Mouse for all upcoming releases…which would include Star Wars. If you haven’t upgraded, perhaps the gorgeous visuals of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be the reason for you to convert:
