The animated film is coming to Blu-ray in February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is preparing 'Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet' for Blu-ray on February 2.
From the director of 'The Lion King' comes a new animated classic, based on one of the most beloved and bestselling books of all time, and brought to life by some of the most acclaimed animators from around the world. In a Mediterranean seaside village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter Almitra (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa's return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will spark rebellion. Take a journey that critics call "gloriously uplifting and life-affirming" (IndieWire), "profound" (Variety), and "a celebration of life, freedom, and the human spirit" (The National).
The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Animating Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet; An Interview with the Filmmakers; and Animatic.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
