Pan’s Labyrinth Gets a 4K Ultra HD Release in Time for Halloween


For the first time, Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth is getting a 4K remaster set to arrive via Ultra HD and digital release this October!

If you somehow missed Pan’s Labyrinth (originally released back in 2006), then your excuses for no longer checking it out are about to run dry. Guillermo del Toro’s critically acclaimed film, a superb dark fairy tale, is getting a 4K Ultra HD release on October 1st. Even better, it will include all seven hours of previously released bonus features to enjoy:

Written and directed by del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim, The Shape of Water), Pan’s Labyrinth premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival where it received a 22-minute standing ovation, followed by its North American premiere at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival.  The critically-acclaimed film won multiple awards, including three Academy Awards, three BAFTA Awards, the Ariel Award for Best Picture, the Saturn Award for Best International Film, and the 2007 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form.  The film also appeared on more than 20 critic’s top ten lists for 2006.

The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack of Pan’s Labyrinth will include more than seven hours of previously released special features, including an audio commentary by Guillermo del Toro.

Following a bloody civil war, young Ofelia enters a world of unimaginable cruelty when she moves in with her new stepfather, a tyrannical military officer.  Armed with only her imagination, Ofelia discovers a mysterious labyrinth and meets a faun who sets her on a path to saving herself and her ailing mother.  But soon, the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur, and before Ofelia can turn back, she finds herself at the center of a ferocious battle between good and evil.
