After a successful run in theaters worldwide, "Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu No F" is set to be released on home video in October this year.
"FUNimation has announced that Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' will be released on digital HD starting Oct. 9, and at retail outlets throughout the United States and Canada starting Oct. 20," ComicBook.com said. "Three versions will be released and are currently available for pre-order, with two featuring more than 50 minutes of bonus features."
The Collector's Edition, which, along with the Blu-ray Combo Pack, will have the 50-minute extra features, will be encased in "premium packaging" and will also contain four holographic postcards of the villain Frieza, according to IGN.
To pre-order, head to the official site.
"Those who do so through FUNimation's online store can purchase an exclusive Shenron dragon t-shirt for an extra $10," IGN also relayed.
What's included in the Collector's Edition? Aside from the holographic postcards, this edition will, of course, include all 95 minutes of the a gtual film and over 50 minutes of extras, such as a behind-the-scenes featurette of the voices behind the "Dragon Ball Z" characters, interviews and red carpet clips of the cast of "The Return of Dragon Ball Z." This edition will be sold at $59.98.
The Blu-ray + DVD Combo will include the film and the 50-minute extra feature only. It can be yours at about $34.98.
The DBZ DVD only includes the feature film itself and is the lowest-priced of the three at $29.98.
FUNimation's announcement of the home video release is poignant for DBZ fans as "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection of F" has made it to the "Top 10 list of highest grossing domestic anime films of all time," as noted by ComicBook.com.
"We're grateful to all our fans for their tremendous response and support for the theatrical release of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'," Gen Fukunaga, founder and CEO of FUNimation, declared. "I am especially pleased to bring them the home video release so quickly after the theatrical run so they can enjoy the movie over and over again, just as we will."
All in all, the movie earned $8.4 million in North America alone and had enjoyed an extended run at select theaters until August 17.
"It's a great film that loyal DBZ fans, and fans of anime, have helped push into the record books in just 6 days," IGN quoted FUNimation EVP and COO Michael DuBoise as saying earlier this month. "Great word of mouth, extremely positive reviews, plus a film that appeals to core fans and is creating new fans, have led to sold-out shows, repeat viewings, and additional theaters being added through Wednesday."
