The Oscar-nominated film swims to both formats this March.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox says 'The Shape of Water' will be available on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on March 13.

Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.
