Posted Tue Jun 14, 2016 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The animated sci-fi adventure is headed for Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios will be releasing 'Ratchet & Clank' on Blu-ray on August 16.

Based on the popular video game franchise, Ratchet & Clank follows two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy "Lombax" who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called the Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one's own identity in this thrilling and funny adventure featuring the voices of Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Rosario Dawson and Sylvester Stallone.

The Blu-ray combo pack will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.1 audio, and supplements include: Ratchet & Clank: A Hero's Journey and Ratchet & Clank: Leveling Up.
