For many Star Wars fans, Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs helped fill the void that existed after ‘Return of the Jedi’ released four years earlier. Of course, the satiric film touches on quite a few sci-fi movies from the time, but Star Wars is the most evident in the movie’s characters, script, and set design.
Kino Lorber StudioClassics has just announced Spaceballs, now a cult-classic, is coming soon to 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray. And, the improved video resolution will also be enhanced by Dolby Vision HDR that expands the color range to 10-bits over traditional 8-bit 2k Blu-ray.
Spaceballs on 4k Blu-ray with Blu-ray copy has a list price of $39.95. Order for $26.49 ($34% off) on Amazon. You can also catch the film on Showtime or rent in HD for .99 cents on Amazon Prime.
