The 4K UHD Disc includes special features such as:

– Commentary by the director, producer, and cinematographer
– Featurette: First Avenue: The Road to Pop Royalty
– Music Videos: Let’s Go Crazy, Take Me with U, When Doves Cry, I Would Die 4 U/Baby I’m a Star, Purple Rain, Jungle Love, The Bird, and Sex Shooter

However, it does not include some previous bonuses like the making-of documentary and the 1984 MTV Premiere Party.

This rerelease allows fans to experience Prince’s groundbreaking work with enhanced quality, celebrating the enduring legacy of “Purple Rain.”
