Most Netflix movies don’t get an actual physical media release, unless it one day gets picked up by a company like Criterion and given a special edition Blu-ray. Only a handful of movies in Netflix’s history have gotten that treatment, but another is about to join the list. The Mitchells vs. the Machines, the hit animated film released earlier this year, is getting a Blu-ray that will arrive in stores on December 14th.
Unlike other Netflix films that have received physical editions, The Mitchells vs. the Machines wasn’t added to some premium collection or licensed out to another company. Sony Pictures Animation made a deal with Netflix to become the exclusive home of The Mitchells vs. the Machines, forgoing a theatrical debut in the wake of the pandemic. Since it was a Sony production originally, the company made sure it would still be able to give the film a physical home release long after its Netflix debut.
The Mitchells vs. the Machines Blu-ray comes with hours of special features and deleted scenes, including an extended cut of the movie that includes 40 additional minutes of footage.
