Posted Wed Jul 24, 2013 at 01:00 PM PDT by

The 2013 animated fantasy will hit both Blu-ray formats in four weeks.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'Epic' Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack and 'Epic - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack for August 20.

Epic tells the story of a battle raging all around us between the forces of good, who protect nature, and the forces of evil, who wish to see it destroyed. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and unique characters to save their world...and ours.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but each release will be packed with numerous supplements including: Mub & Grub Intro - Join Mub and Grub for an EPIC tour through the special features of this Blu-ray; Birds, Bugs and Slugs: Forest Explorer - Journey into the forest to meet the real-life counterparts of the EPIC world; Rot Rocks - Mandrake might be the bad guy, but his world of rot benefits ours in a number of ways, let's discover how; Bugs of Camouflage - Join us to find out how bugs use their environment to hide right under our noses, just like the Leafmen; The Epic Life At Two Inches Tall - How would your life be different if you were only two inches tall? Aside from being small, there are some surprising and amazing benefits; Mysteries of Moonhaven Revealed - Meet the incredibly talented filmmakers, artists, and animators at Blue Sky, and learn all about the making of EPIC; Epic Coloring & Storybook Builder App – Color your own EPIC story with exclusive pages on your iOS or Android devices; and Theatrical Trailer.

Every Deluxe Edition Blu-ray will also include 3 Epic Seed cards—so you can grow your own Epic Garden!

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $39.99 and the Blu-ray 3D is $49.99.
