There is no region coding information on the sleeve. Although not 100% confirmed the mention of a second disc on the sleeve combined with retailer listings would suggest there is also a digital copy of the film included in standard definition.
DVD features are TBC, but we do know there will be both single-disc and 2-Disc Collector’s Edition versions. Most retailers are advertising the latter as offering a second disc with a digital copy of the film.
