Team America: World Police's Profane Puppets Will Misbehave In 4K For The First Time This Summer

Team America: World Police is a problematic puppet spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.


Just a few years into South Park's run, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone tried to leverage the show's success by making a puppet action movie, and the result was 2004's Team America: World Police, which is still a one-of-a-kind movie experience. And, finally, after two decades, it's finally getting a release on 4K Blu-ray on June 25, and you can preorder it now at Amazon, Walmart, and Target.

Team America is about a group of black ops soldiers who handle impossible, world-saving missions that nobody else can hope to pull off--the movie is parodying that common action trope through the lens of 9/11 and ensuing wars in the Middle East. Though, honestly, the film is probably best remembered now for the still-amazing puppet sex scene, which includes several bits of depravity you don't normally get to see in a theatrically released movie.

Team America isn't the only thing from Trey Parker and Matt Stone getting the 4K upgrade this summer--South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut is also being released on 4K Blu-ray on June 25. That makes that a pretty big day for Gen Xers and older millennials. You can preorder the South Park movie on 4K for the same prices at the same retailers: Amazon, Walmart, and Target.
