Amazon UK still have release date for Blu-ray edition as 2039 :rofl:

I expect by Monday or a few days later Amazon Uk will correct website listing to show December 7 2020
Any idea what's happening with this?

It's out of stock on Zavvi and my order simply says "order placed" where it used to say "order processing". I haven't been charged for it yet either. Amazon still has the release date as 2039 and still available to pre-order.

Did anyone get there copy yet?
