All right, we’re waiting on a number of 4K Ultra HD review titles to come in any time now, including The Patriot, Fury, Red Sparrow, and the Jurassic Park set. While we do, we’ve got some release and announcement news for you...

First up, it appears that the official street date for Disney and Pixar’s The Incredibles in 4K Ultra HD is 6/5 and not 6/12. We expect the official press release to go out any time now and we’ll post the details as soon as it does. So adjust your plans accordingly.

Also today, Shout! Factory has announced that review product for their recent Wild at Heart: Shout Select Blu-ray release had a manufacturing error that’s now being corrected for the actual retail product. This means that the street date for the title has been moved from 5/22 to 8/21. Adjust your plans accordingly. [Read on here...]

Now then... a number of our readers have asked us when Star Wars Rebels: Season Four is likely to be released on Blu-ray and DVD. Well, Disney and Lucasfilm’s usual release window for the series holds, look for it to street sometime in late August or early September. That’s when previous seasons have streeted on disc.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros Home Entertainment has set Arrow: The Complete Sixth Season for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 8/14. The set will include all 23 episodes plus The Best of DC TV’s Comic-Con Panels San Diego 2017, The Split of a Man: Deathstroke, Inside the Crossover: Crisis on Earth-X, and Revenge in Ones and Zeros: The Story of Cayden James.

Extras will include The Death of Superman: The Brawl That Topped Them All, A Sneak Peek at DC Universe’s Next Animated Movie, Reign of the Supermen, and two From the DC Comics Vault episodes of Legion of Superheroes.

Also today, Paramount and MGM have announced the animated Sherlock Gnomes for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 6/12, with the Digital release expected on 6/5.

Scream Factory has set The Cured for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 7/3.

And Time Life is releasing Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In: The Complete Fifth Season on DVD on 7/10.

Here at the site today, we’ve just posted the weekly update of our Release Dates & Artwork section here at The Bits with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and pre-order links. As always, any time you shop through our links it’s helps here at the site and we appreciate it.

And finally, while we’ve mentioned this on our social media pages already, we wanted to take a moment today to acknowledge the passing of actors Margot Kidder (best known as Lois Lane from Richard Donner’s Superman) and Joseph Campanella (a veteran character actor with over 200 credits), as well as writer Tom Wolfe (author of The Right Stuff, The Bonfire of the Vanities, and The Last American Hero). All will be missed.That’s all for now.

Margot Kidder, Joseph Campanella, Tom Wolfe... RIP

Stay tuned…
