In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be releasing 'Wizards: 35th Anniversary Edition' on Blu-ray on March 13.

The limited edition digibook Blu-ray release is a must-have for fans and collectors, featuring 24-pages of amazing artwork from the film, some of the artwork never-before-seen, and a special message from Bakshi!
