Warner Bros announces The Color Purple on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD

Warner Bros has been celebrating their 100th anniversary by digging into their archives and bringing classic films to 4K for the first time. One of these films was the 1985 Steven Spielberg film The Color Purple. In 2005 the story hit the stage for a musical version that was also a major hit with numerous Tony award nominations and wins. With its success producers Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Quincy Jones decided to bring the musical version to the big screen this time starring Halle Bailey, Taraji P. Henson, Colman Domingo and both Danielle Brooks and Fantasia Barrino both reprising their roles from the Broadway show with director Blitz Bazawule at the helm.

The Color Purple follows Celie who faces many hardships in her life, including an abusive husband simply called Mister after being torn apart from her sister Nettie and her children. With the support of sultry singer Shug Avery and stand-her-ground stepdaughter Sofia, Celie ultimately finds extraordinary strength in the unbreakable bonds of a new kind of sisterhood.

In addition to the film this release offers up bonus content including numerous featurettes on bringing this new version to the big screen. Witness the iconic film in a whole new way with The Color Purple available now on digital and then on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on March 12th from Warner Bros Home Entertainment.
