Sunday is always a fun day for families at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) and one of the big reasons in 2018 was the World Premiere of LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis, playing in Room 6BCF. The Direct-to-Video movie is being released to BOTH Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack tomorrow, Tuesday, July 31, 2018. This is a rare release that both the digital format and the physical format come out on the same day. And, the combo pack contains a Jessica Cruz Green Lantern LEGO mini-fig, too!
The panel and premiere screening were hosted by Warner Bros Home Entertainment and moderated by Gary Miereanu.
