A Heartwarming Story
About Kindness, Love and Friendship


Our family was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of the movie Wonder. If ever there is a movie that I would encourage you to add to your collection it would be this one. We all have felt at some point in our life that we don't belong and that we are different.  Wonder is the story of August “Auggie” Pullman, a young child who was born with a facial disease called mandibulofacial dysostosis, also known as Treacher Collins syndrome. This movie should remind us all that we should choose to be kind to everyone. Everyone we meet in this life is fighting a battle that we might not always see, we never know how just 1 kind gesture can change things.



“Who do I aspire to be? That’s the question we should be asking ourselves all the time.” – Auggie’s teacher Mr. Browne


“Be kind for everyone is fighting a hard battle. Be kind.” – Auggie

Our movie promo box we received - six pages of Valentine’s Day Cards, a Wonder #choosekind lunch bag, a Star Master LED Interchanging Color Light Display, a Wonder Fidget Spinner, a bag of Wonder candy hearts and a Wonder Phone Camera Lens.

SANTA MONICA, CA (January 8, 2018) – The incredibly moving and heartfelt family film, Wonder, heads to Digital January 30 and 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On Demand February 13 from Lionsgate. Based on the #1 New York Times bestseller, and USA Today’s top-selling book of 2017, by R.J. Palacio, writer-director Stephen Chbosky (Beauty and the Beast, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) brings to life the uplifting story of a boy who inspires and teaches others that true beauty is found within. Certified Fresh™ on Rotten Tomatoes and co-written for the screen by Steven Conrad and Jack Thorne, Wonder stars Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts (2000, Best Actress, Erin Brockovich), Academy Award® nominee Owen Wilson (2001, Best Writing, The Royal Tenenbaums), Golden Globe® nominee Mandy Patinkin (1984, Best Actor – Motion Picture – Musical/Comedy, Yentl; 1995, Best Television Actor – Drama Series, “Chicago Hope”; 2003, Best Supporting Actor – Limited Series or Television Motion Picture, “Homeland”), and Jacob Tremblay (RoomThe Smurfs 2).

Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with facial differences. When Auggie enters mainstream elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. 

The Wonder home entertainment release includes all-new special features, including a never-before-seen 5-part documentary, multiple featurettes, a music video, and an audio commentary with Stephen Chbosky and R.J. Palacio. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray also features Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR), growing Lionsgate’s library of titles featuring both Dolby Vision and Dolby TrueHD. Dolby Vision transforms the TV experience in the home by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. The 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray versions feature Dolby TrueHD, which provides the most authentic lossless audio experience available for the home theater. Together Dolby Vision and Dolby TrueHD allow consumers to experience both cutting-edge imaging and lossless audio sound technology for an immersive entertainment experience.
