Posted Thu Oct 27, 2016 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The acclaimed 2015 animated film is headed for Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is working on 'Long Way North' for Blu-ray on January 17.

Long Way North is set in the late 19th century Saint Petersburg. Sacha, a young girl from the Russian aristocracy, dreams of the Great North and anguishes over the fate of her grandfather, Oloukine, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer who has yet to return from his latest expedition to conquer the North Pole.

Sacha has always been fascinated by the adventurous life of her grandfather and has the same calling as Oloukine to be an explorer. But Sacha's parents, who already made arrangements for her marriage, strongly disapprove the idea to say the least. Defying her destiny, Sacha flees her home and launches an adventure-filled quest toward the Great North in search of Oloukine and his ship.

No other details have been revealed at this time.
