Justice League - Just Imagine! Justice League - Season 1 Announced for Blu-ray!

This August, the super-heroes go to high definition!

Posted by David Lambert
After high-def success with their Blu-ray release of Justice League: The New Frontier, Warner Home Video has announced their decision to go back to the modern-day roots of the animated adventures of the team with a Blu-ray disc release of 2001's Justice League - Season 1. This package will answer the call on August 19th.

All 26 episodes running 575 minutes will come on 3 double-density "BD-50" Blu-ray discs. The list price is $59.95 (meaning you should be able to pick this up in stores around $40-$45 "street price," after retailer discounts). Other specs aren't listed yet for this release, nor are extras. The original DVD release of the first season back in March 2006 was loaded with bonus material, though, so we expect to see at least the same supplements on the Blu-ray release (and hopefully a little bit more).

Spec-wise, it's worth reminding everyone that the original DVD release was presented in 1.33:1 full-frame video, which caused a controversy among fans who debated whether the widescreen version should be available instead (at the time of the original broadcast, Cartoon Network was airing it in fullscreen for the first showing, then in widescreen on the encore showing a few days later). With this high-definition release, it ought to be a lock that fans can get this at home in widescreen at last...and high-definition widescreen to boot!

We'll leave you drooling over the package art for this 3-BD set. Stay tuned for updates on the details, just as soon as they're available!
