Kevin Bacon, dancing away, in 4K? Footloose is coming to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in the UK, it’s been confirmed.

Paramount Pictures is wasting little time sorting new catalogue releases for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format in 2024, with the news that the 1980s hit Footloose is heading to the format.

Already confirmed in America, a UK release has now been earmarked for February 12th 2024, and the film has gone up for order now. You can find it here.

Initially, it’s only available as a Steelbook release, although it’s expected that a regular 4K disc package isn’t far away. It’s the original film, incidentally, that’s getting the release, and not the remake (the remake is a pretty good one, mind).

Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer, Dianne Wiest and John Lithgow thus take the lead roles here, with Herbert Ross behind the camera.

The package comes with a Blu-ray in the box as well, which means previous extra features are being carried over. And here’s the list of confirmed extras…

• Commentary by Craig Zadan and Dean Pitchford

• Commentary by Kevin Bacon

• Let’s Dance! Kevin Bacon on Footloose

• From Bomont to the Big Apple: An Interview with Sarah Jessica Parker

• Remembering Willard

• Kevin Bacon’s Screen Test

• Kevin Bacon Costume Montage

• Footloose: A Modern Musical – Part 1

• Footloose: A Modern Musical – Part 2

• Footloose: Songs That Tell A Story

• Theatrical Trailer

And finally, the synopsis for the film. As if you didn’t know what it was about…

Jumping with the spirit of freedom, dazzling dance numbers, and an electrifying ’80s musical soundtrack, FOOTLOOSE comes to 4K ULTRA HD™ for its 40th Anniversary in this limited edition collectible SteelBook®. It’s the timeless struggle between innocent pleasure and rigid morality for city boy Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon), newly moved to an uptight small town where dancing has been banned. Ren quickly makes a new best friend in Willard (Chris Penn) and falls fast for the minister’s daughter (Lori Singer), but his love for music and dancing gets him into hot water equally as fast. Featuring a treasury of hit songs from Kenny Loggins, Shalamar, Deniece Williams, Bonnie Tyler, Quiet Riot, John Mellencamp, Foreigner, and more!

The 4K is available to preorder now.
