The brand new animated adventure and the original action-packed movie will receive the 4K UHD treatment in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Sony says Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on September 19.
Directed by celebrated anime filmmaker Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed Alpha, Appleseed Ex Machina) and written by sci-fi master Ed Neumeier (Starship Troopers, RoboCop), STARSHIP TROOPERS: TRAITOR OF MARS sees Rico and Dizzy reunite on screen twenty years after the release of 1997’s sci-fi classic Starship Troopers for an action-packed and breathtakingly animated outer space military adventure co-starring comedian and Starship Troopers superfan DeRay Davis (TV’s “Wild 'N Out,” 21 Jump Street).
C’mon You Apes, You Wanna Live Forever?! I have only one rule. Everybody fights, no one quits. The bugs have breached Mars and the Federation’s Fleet is too far to help. It’s up to us to save the planet. On the bounce, Troopers! The only Good Bug is a Dead Bug! Oorah!
Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores alongside comedian and Starship Troopers superfan DeRay Davis in an all-new military adventure from the writer of Starship Troopers and Robocop, Ed Neumeier.
