The Chinese period drama will magically appear on Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA says 'The Great Magician' will hit Blu-ray on March 19.

In 1916, China is in turmoil with warlords battling against each other and Japanese conspirators lurking in the dark. One day, a mysterious man named Zhang Xian takes the capital city by storm with his mesmerizing magic tricks. He soon catches the attention of ruthless warlord Commander Lei, who is eager to please his seventh wife Liu Yin by taking her to see Zhang's performance. Unbeknownst to Lei, his favorite concubine was once the fiancée of Zhang, and approaching him to earn his trust is just the first step in the vengeful illusionist's secret agenda...

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include a making-of featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
