Sparkle will forever be known as Whitney Houston’s final feature film and not co-star Jordin Sparks first. No matter how you look at it, Sparkle has been cleared for a November 30 release date on Blu-ray and DVD.
The Blu-ray edition of Sparkle will be presented in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. The DVD and an UltraViolet copy will be included.
Bonus features include a pair of featurettes: ‘A Tribute to Whitney Houston’ with Harvey Mason Jr. along with filmmakers, screenwriters, and cast paying tribute to Houston; and ‘A Dream Come True’ with the filmmakers discussing the arduous, but triumphant journey of bringing the film to the big screen. Also included is a commentary with director Salim Akil.
Exclusive to Blu-ray is ‘A Sparkling Performance’ in which Sparks, Ejogo and Sumpter discuss the singing, dancing and glamorous costumes from the film; ‘Sparkle and Shine’ with insight into the wonderfully complex characters in the film; an extended performance of ‘Hooked On Your Love;’ as well as the music video for Whitney Houston’s final recording, ‘Celebrate,’ starring Sparks and cast from the film.
