Anchorman heads to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for the first time, to mark the 20th anniversary of the film. More on the release here.

A very happy 20th anniversary to Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team in San Diego, with the news that Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy is celebrating its birthday. The 2004 movie, that starred Will Ferrell, Steve Carell (“loud noises”), Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and David Koechner, remains a firm favourite, and gave Oscar-winning filmmaker Adam McKay his first hit as director too. The mighty Step Brothers wasn’t far behind.

Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy is now making its 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray debut with a deluxe physical media set that’s landing on 5th August 2024.

You can find more information about the release, and order yourself a copy, right here.

The new set includes a 4K disc and two Blu-rays in the box. That gets you the original film and presumably – as well as a lot of extras – the second film made up of leftover material from the first (Wake Up, Ron Burgundy). No confirmation of that though, so don’t hold us to it.

What you definitely get in the new set are five art cards, five character cards, a Channel 4 news sticker and The Many Months Of Ron Burgundy booklet. All on top of the discs themselves.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of the film, then here’s a synopsis for the new release to give you a taste of it.

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY for the first time in brilliant 4K UHD™. There was a time before cable when the local anchorman reigned supreme….Enter the hard-hitting world of 1970s local TV news, where Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his loyal Channel 4 News Team are San Diego’s #1 rated news source. All is well in their male-dominated world of news until beautiful, rising-star reporter Veronica Corningstone turns it all upside down. Sparks don’t just fly, they ignite an all-out war between two perfectly coiffed anchorpersons. In a job where it pays to keep a straight face, Anchorman is the comedy that makes it almost impossible to stop laughing.

And we’ll leave you with a bit of a sing song…
