When The Wizard made its original debut in-cinemas, it was widely panned by critics for being nothing more than a lengthy commercial for Nintendo and Universal Studios. Despite this, it still managed to develop a cult following over the years.

Now, as we near the film's 30th anniversary, the movie's director Todd Holland has revealed a special Blu-ray is in the works and will arrive next February. It's all thanks to the loyal fans for repeatedly "screaming" at Universal to give the movie some respect. Here's his full message on Instagram:

#theWizard 30th Anniversary Blu-ray is in the works! Coming out in Feb 2020. Thank you to every fan who kept screaming at Universal to give this movie some respect. YOU made it happen.
