Culver City, CA — Sony Pictures Home Entertainment debuts The Pirates! Band of Misfits on Blu-ray 3D/DVD Combo Pack, Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD — all with UltraViolet — on August 28. From the Academy Award-winning Aardman (Chicken Run) and Sony Pictures Animation (The Smurfs), comes the all-new, swashbuckling stop-motion animated film that’s sure to entertain families from beginning to end.
This critically acclaimed action-packed comedy adventure follows the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain, voiced by Hugh Grant (About A Boy), in his first animated role, and his band of misfits (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Al Roker, Anton Yelchin and Ashley Jensen) as they frolic on the high seas in an amusing quest to win the coveted “Pirates of the Year” award. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure! The film also stars Jeremy Piven (TV’s “Entourage”) as Black Bellamy.
