Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 announces digital/Blu-ray/DVD release in Australia


The Guardians are coming home. Again. You’re welcome. Disney and Marvel have announced that Australians can bring Baby Groot and the gang home on August 8 digitally, and on 23 August in physical formats. 

This August, Marvel Studios’ GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, the blockbuster sequel featuring the world’s favorite band of intergalactic misfits, blasts into homes digitally on August 8th, 2017 and physically on August 23rd, 2017. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 marks the Studios first in-home release in stunning 4K Ultra HD™ format. 4K Ultra HD provides four times sharper resolution of HD with exceptional HDR which produces brighter brights, deeper blacks and richer colors than ever before. The galaxy has never looked so good!

We reviewed the film in cinemas back in April, and ultimately found that the “volume is cranked up on the second outing of the universe’s most unlikely success story, but it’s a mix tape that sits somewhere between their ‘greatest hits’ and an uneven double album.”

If you’re wondering which format to get, note that the digital release has a number of exclusive bonus features, including a look at the new Disneyland attraction.
