The animated 1986 Transformers: The Movie is getting a Blu-Ray release for its 30th Anniversary.

Shout Factory! has signed a new deal with Hasbro which gives them the distribution rights to the movie, so Shout! Factory is planning to remaster the film in high-definition from the original 35mm elements for a Blu-ray release due out September 13th.

It's also announced a full-range of bonus content and collectible packaging is currently being developed.

“The 'Transformers' franchise has been part of American popular culture for more than 30 years, developing into one of the most recognizable brands around the globe,” said Stephen Davis, chief content officer and EVP of Hasbro. “The Transformers: The Movie played a huge role in the brand’s early success, laying the foundation for major motion pictures, several successful TV series, clothing and apparel, toys and much more. We are thrilled to work with Shout! Factory to deliver the original movie to fans in a completely remastered HD experience.”
