    The Critically Acclaimed Film Arrives on Digital January 30
    and 4K Ultra HDTM Combo Pack, Blu-rayTM Combo Pack,
    and DVD on February 13

    SANTA MONICA, CA (January 8, 2018) – The incredibly moving and heartfelt family film, Wonder, heads to Digital January 30 and 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On Demand February 13 from Lionsgate. Based on the #1 New York Times bestseller, and USA Today’s top-selling book of 2017, by R.J. Palacio, writer-director Stephen Chbosky (Beauty and the Beast, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) brings to life the uplifting story of a boy who inspires and teaches others that true beauty is found within. Certified Freshon Rotten Tomatoes and co-written for the screen by Steven Conrad and Jack Thorne, Wonder stars Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts (2000, Best Actress, Erin Brockovich), Academy Award® nominee Owen Wilson (2001, Best Writing, The Royal Tenenbaums), Golden Globe® nominee Mandy Patinkin (1984, Best Actor – Motion Picture – Musical/Comedy, Yentl; 1995, Best Television Actor – Drama Series, “Chicago Hope”; 2003, Best Supporting Actor – Limited Series or Television Motion Picture, “Homeland”), and Jacob Tremblay (Room, The Smurfs 2).

    Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with facial differences. When Auggie enters mainstream elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

    The Wonder home entertainment release includes all-new special features, including a never-before-seen 5-part documentary, multiple featurettes, a music video, and an audio commentary with Stephen Chbosky and R.J. Palacio. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray also features Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR), growing Lionsgate’s library of titles featuring both Dolby Vision and Dolby TrueHD. Dolby Vision transforms the TV experience in the home by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. The 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray versions feature Dolby TrueHD, which provides the most authentic lossless audio experience available for the home theater. Together Dolby Vision and Dolby TrueHD allow consumers to experience both cutting-edge imaging and lossless audio sound technology for an immersive entertainment experience.

    Timed to the book’s sixth anniversary, and to Valentine’s Day, Wonder will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD for the suggested retail price of $42.99, $39.99, and $29.95, respectively.

    I'm not sure I can sit through this one without tearing up, as I can relate the story to a family that lives in my area.

    A local couple adopted a pair of children that have the same genetic disorder as the main character in this film. They are both about 8 years old, but they physically look much younger. Although I am told they are not related by blood, they look very similar to each other. Maybe that's part of the disorder; I am not sure.

    They have been through multiple surgeries to correct not only cosmetic issues but to also preserve one child's sight in one eye and an implant that helps them hear as one child's ears were not properly formed. I assume they are both at least partly deaf as the parents use sign language most of the time.

    Despite all they have endured, they both take part in a competitive team sport. This is provided free of charge by the owners of the gym where they and our daughter attend. To see everything that those two have gone through and to see their spirit and determination to excel makes my heart hurt, but it's a good kind of hurt.

    I will be watching this one, for sure. Thanks for the announcement.

    Tracy, Ralph said it was one of the best films from last year. I definitely look forward to seeing it and Kleenex will get an add-on sale!

    Greetings,

    This was indeed one of last year's best and a touching and spirited tribute to children born with this affliction. We loved it.
