Originally released on February 17, 1984, the dance musical Footloose thrilled audiences with its spirited dancing, electrifying soundtrack, and inspiring story.  Kevin Bacon gives a star-making performance as a city boy whose rebellious love for music and dancing shakes up a small town.

Directed by Herbert Ross and written by composer and writer Dean Pitchford, Footloose was a massive success, earning $80 million at the domestic box office.  The film features an exceptional supporting cast, including Lori Singer, Dianne Wiest, John Lithgow, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Chris Penn, along with a sensational soundtrack featuring Kenny Loggins, Bonnie Tyler, John Mellencamp, Foreigner, and more.

Newly remastered, Footloose will be available in a two-disc 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray set or a collectible SteelBook with artwork designed to look like an 80s Walkman.  Both sets include access to a digital copy of the film and the Blu-ray includes the legacy bonus content detailed below:
