Classic anime fans will be excited to learn that Lionsgate is now celebrating the original Ghost in the Shell‘s 25th anniversary with an Ultra-High Definition (UHD) 4K Blu-ray release as well as a digital counterpart.

For those unfamiliar, Ghost in the Shell is an anime movie directed by Mamoru Oshii and first released back in 1995. The film was based on Masamune Shirow’s manga of the same name, and was set in the dystopian future of 2029. It followed the main protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cybernetic government agent working alongside the Internal Bureau of Investigations to find “The Puppet Master,” described as “a mysterious and threatening computer virus…capable of infiltrating human hosts.” Along with other agents from Section 9, Kusanagi sets off on a high-tech race against time to unveil and capture the mastermind.

Since its original release, the film has been made available in a number of different media platforms including VHS back in 1996, DVD in 1998, and subsequently normal Blu-ray as recent as 2016. It also inspired various projects and titles related to it, such as 2002’s Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex television sequel, a live-action adaptation in 2017 featuring Scarlett Johansson, and a current CG series on Netflix named Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045. 

Ghost in the Shell’s UHD 4K Blu-ray will release September 8 for a price of $23 USD.
