‘Peter Rabbit’ Bounces to Digital This April
Peter Rabbit now has a home box-office date
Sony Pictures has set a home-video release date for the animated hit “Peter Rabbit”. The CGI/live-action comedy is set to hit Digital HD later this April, with the Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film just a few hops behind.
Fans and parents can pre-order the digital version of the film on sites like iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, and you can find the Blu-ray and DVD versions on sale on Amazon.com. James Corden (Into The Woods, Trolls) stars as the beloved rebellious rabbit in the contemporary feature film adaptation, the digital version is set to release on April 20th and the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD versions will be available on May 1st.
The film was an instant hit for Sony Pictures, opening at number-two just behind “Fifty Shades Freed” with $25M domestically. The animated-comedy then went on to make over $110M domestically and $228M worldwide.
In addition, the physical skus will also include digital versions of the movie, redeemable via the all-new Movies Anywhere App. Experience all the mischief in McGregor’s garden with Corden voicing Peter Rabbit, Margot Robbie (I, Tonya, Suicide Squad) as Flopsy, Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2) as Mopsy, and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Cotton-tail. Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids, Spy) and Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Ex Machina) also star as Bea and Mr. McGregor.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray and Digital releases is “Flopsy Turvy,” an all-new original mini movie featuring Peter’s precocious sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail. The special is narrated by Margot Robbie as Flopsy. When Flospy sets out to prove that anything her sisters can do, she can do better, she soon learns that when times get tough, sisters come together. With the Digital, Blu-ray and DVD releases, fans can watch “Mischief in the Making” – a special peek behind-the-scenes with the cast, director and animators as they discuss bringing these beloved and modern characters to life. The entire family can also dance along to the film’s theme song “I Promise You” sung by James Corden, in the featurette “Shake Your Cotton-tail.”
