On stunning 4K Ultra HD, 3D Bluray, Bluray 2-disc combo from writer/director Mark Krenzien and SHOUT! Factory is the amazing “Journey to Space.”

This film brings the most spectacular view of our universe narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart. NASA not only tells us of their goals for the space program which is quite ambitious but includes a real mission to Mars. If that isn’t amazing enough, how about capturing an asteroid? I’d like to be in that!

Speaking with astronauts Chris Ferguson who was the Commander of the final Space Shuttle mission and Serena Aunon who is an astronaut training for future flights, we hear their personal insights. From the history of missions completed to dreams of future missions, just listening to them speak is reason enough to daydream about our vast universe.

There is absolutely astounding and beautiful space footage with space operations mixed in. From repairing the Hubble Space Telescope and working on the International Space Station, it is brilliant when people can do surrounded by the vacuum of space.

On ISS [International Space Station], viewers learn so much about what it is like to live and work on this massive project that will continue well until 2024. “The film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps NASA will be taking, leaps that will forever change how we live and operate in space as a species”. In case you are wondering, yes, Mars is in the astronaut plans!

“Journey to Space” is just beautiful to view because of the amazing way it is presented. Having Patrick Stewart as the narrator is literally so cool because who are you going to trust to talk about space? None other than Jean-Luc Picard!

Also, I believe this to be a wonderful opportunity for families to sit together and learn more about our outer world. The conversations that can come from this film could perhaps inspire a child or two to be our NASA experts or, even better our next astronauts on their way to Mars!

SHOUT! Factory is devoted to bringing the best of pop culture to fans. From feature films, classic television series, animation and comedy specials are all available to add to your own home library. To see more of what they have to offer please visit www.shoutfactory.com.

TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “Journey to Space” five tubs of popcorn out of five. I will admit that I don’t know the intricacies of space but oh my this film is stunning. If it counts I love all films about space no matter how far fetched they may be because what we thought was once far fetched brought about a man walking on the moon right?

The animation is really well done and very informative. Since I admit to being very limited on my NASA knowledge, visuals of any type add something more. I’m also thrilled to learn more about what is coming with a real life mission to mars. There are so many films about it and I think its time for a first hand account of the planet that seems to draw us all in with its mysteries and mythologies.

“Journey to Space” has been released in theatres with high dynamic range (HDR) and Dolby Atmos. The 4K UHD disc delivers incredible picture clarity and immersive audio bringing this film to a higher level of an awesome experience. Filmed for IMAX and Giant Screen Theatres, you can be sure your home entertainment journey into space will be just as stellar!

In the end — fasten your seat belts as we learn how to go to Mars!
