OFFICIAL: Hughes’ ‘80s classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” arrives on 4K Ultra HD – Aug. 1

Updated: Jun 6, 2023


TODAY is Ferris Bueller Day – the perfect day to announce the 4K Ultra HD release of John Hughes’ 1980s comedy classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Paramount Pictures will premiere the physical 4K disc on August 1.

Writer/director John Hughes’ seminal comedy about a high school student’s wild adventure in the Windy City during a single, magnificent day off continues to be enjoyed, quoted, and revered. The enduring classic captures the uproarious antics of Ferris and his friends as they relish the freedom of being not quite grown up.

Matthew Broderick stars as the delightfully charming Ferris who, with his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and best bud Cameron (Alan Ruck), ditches school to enjoy one perfect day as a kid with no responsibilities. In 2014, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry, which serves as a compendium of films that have been judged to be culturally, aesthetically or historically important.
