Disney has officially announced the release dates for the blockbuster action film Black Panther to home media on Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray, DVD and Digital formats.
Black Panther will first be available in digital formats starting on Tuesday, May 8. The price for a Full HD (1080p) version of the movie is $19.99 from most services, and is available across the board. SD and UHD (4k) resolutions, however, vary depending on platform. For example, iTunes is selling the SD (480p) version for $14.99, but not in 4k (perhaps, just not yet). Vudu and FandangoNow do have Black Panther in 4k UHD, offering pre-orders for $24.99 and $29.99, respectively. Check back upon release date (May 8) when we’ll break down all the places to buy Black Panther in digital.
Blu-ray & Ultra HD Blu-ray
Black Panther will arrive on disc formats Tuesday, May 15. Amazon doesn’t currently have any discs available to pre-order (as with many Disney releases) but they are are available from big box retailers like Best Buy, Target and Walmart. The standard Blu-ray editions are priced between $22.99 and $24.99, but unfortunately do not include a DVD copy in the combo edition — only a Digital copy. The 4k Blu-ray edition does include two disc formats (Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray) as well as Digital copy. That edition is priced $29.99.
Best Buy, Target and Walmart also have plans to release their own exclusive editions of Black Panther, although Best Buy is the only one to have an exclusive Ultra HD Blu-ray edition along with Blu-ray — both come in special Steel Book packaging. Best Buy is selling their exclusives for $29.99 (Blu-ray) and $34.99 (4k Blu-ray). Target is selling their Only @ Target Blu-ray edition for $24.99, and Walmart’s exclusive is going for $24.96.
