Universal Pictures has announced the home media release dates for the animated hit film The Secret Life of Pets. The movie will first be released to Digital HD on Tuesday, November 22nd, followed by multiple disc formats and combo editions on Tuesday, December 6th.
Among the multiple disc formats are Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Ultra HD Blu-ray, and DVD, all of which come with a digital copy redeemable with UltraViolet partners. The 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD versions all feature almost an hour of bonus content, including three mini-movies: the all-new Norman Television, Weenie, and Mower Minions which debuted in theaters.
On Blu-ray and 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray The Secret Life of Pets will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment. Of course, to fully experience the immersive sound format you’ll need a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers or sound bar.
