Paramount Home Media Distribution will bring Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues to DVD and Blu-ray April 1, with a digital debut March 11.
The Blu-ray combo pack ($39.99) includes three versions of the film, including the theatrical version, an unrated version, and the Super-Sized R-Rated Version with 763 new jokes (replacing jokes from the other versions). The set includes more than four hours of bonus material, including commentary by director Adam McKay, producer Judd Apatow and stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner. The Blu-ray also includes more than 90 minutes of deleted, extended and alternate scenes, plus gag reels, five behind-the-scenes featurettes, table reads, cast auditions and more.
Ferrell, Carell, Rudd and Koechner reprise their roles from the 2004 original Anchorman, as they take on the ’80s and the first 24-hour news channel. The film also stars Christina Applegate, Meagan Good, James Marsden and several celebrity cameos. The film earned more than $125 million at the domestic box office.
The DVD ($29.99) includes just the theatrical version of the film.
