Take note that this is a Region B release but 4K Ultra HD discs are inherently Region Free, so if you’re living inside the United States you’ll want to pre-order the 4K Ultra HD set through Zavvi’s US website. The first three discs are 4K Ultra HD discs, but the fourth disc (even in the 4K Ultra HD set) is a Region B Blu-ray and you’ll need a Region Free player to play it.

The Blu-ray version of the set includes all Region B Blu-ray discs.
