Morning, Bits-ers! We’re here with an early My Two Cents news post to start the new week to bring you some breaking news...

Disney and Marvel Studios have just officially set Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for release on Blu-ray, DVD & 4K Ultra HD on 2/7, with the Digital and Disney+ streaming debut planned for 2/1.

In terms of the 4K UHD package, there will be four different versions... a wide-release Amaray, two Best Buy-exclusive Steelbook designs—one by artist Dorothea Taylor that highlights Wakanda and another by Orlando Arocena that features Talokan—and a Walmart-exclusive package with custom artwork that includes a Black Panther enamel pin.

You can see the wide 4K packaging at left and all four different version below the break. [Read on here...]

All will feature English Dolby Atmos audio, audio commentary (by director Ryan Coogler, writer Joe Robert Cole, and cinematographer Autumn Durald Arkapaw), 2 featurettes (Envisioning Two Worlds and Passing the Mantle), 4 deleted scenes (Outside the Scope, The Upstairs Toilet, Daughter of the Border, and Anytime, Anywhere), and a Gag Reel.

Here’s what they look like...

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (4K Ultra HD)

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Walmart - 4K Ultra HD)

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Best Buy Steelbooks - 4K Ultra HD)

Note that we’ll an pre-order link to the wide release artwork when it becomes available.

All will feature the 2.39:1 aspect ratio, while the variable-aspect IMAX Enhanced presentation will be replicated on the Disney+ streaming version.

Also today, we have one other Disney 4K note: We’ve learned from retail sources that Strange World will only be available in 4K as a Best Buy-exclusive Steelbook edition, or directly from the Disney Movie Club in regular Amaray packaging. No wide-release 4K Amaray is planned, at least in North America. The movie will, however, be widely available on both Blu-ray and DVD, and there will be a 4K Digital version. Street date is 2/14.

We’ve updated the 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits with all of this information accordingly.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned...
