Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, is telling his life story in a new documentary film that you can buy on DVD and Blu-ray this May.

We’ve covered before on this site the news that William Shatner is the subject of a new documentary feature. It’s called, cunningly, William Shatner: You Can Call Me Bill, and features Shatner on camera talking about his life and career.

It’s from Alexandre O Philippe, who previously has made The People Vs George Lucas78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene and Memory: The Origins Of Alien, and the film has taken its time getting this far. We first heard about it a couple of years ago, and it debuted towards the start of 2023.

Now though we get news of its UK release.

William Shatner: You Can Call Me Bill has been picked up by Signature Entertainment, and it’s going to be issuing the film on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK from 27th May.

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

There’s no word yet on any extra features of supplements on either the DVD or the Blu-ray. In truth, we’d treat any additional material as a nice surprise. There’s no 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray of this either, but we weren’t really expecting one. Thought you might like to know, though.

The official synopsis for the film reads as follows…

William Shatner: You Can Call Me Bill is an intimate exploration of the life and career of William Shatner. From his unforgettable portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek to his diverse accomplishments of a 70+ year career across film, television, and the arts, the documentary captures the essence of Shatner’s journey and his extraordinary contributions to the entertainment industry.

And if you’re so inclined, we’ve got a trailer for it too, that you can see magically appearing below these very words. We’ll leave you with this…
