Little House on the Prairie - Blu-ray Discs, DVDs Scheduled for 'Season 1: Collector's Edition'

New remastered release contains the original pilot telefilm and more!

Posted by David Lambert
    For the first time since their original TV broadcast, all 24 season one episodes are now presented complete and uncut, newly restored and remastered for optimal picture and sound quality! Plus, you'll discover where the "Little House on the Prairie" TV legend began: with the original, full-length pilot movie that introduced the Ingalls family to millions of viewers around the world! Relive all the heartwarming adventures from season one - from the arrival of Charles Ingalls and his family in Walnut Grove, through the building of a new home and friendships, to battling for their lives against a vicious blizzard - in this ultimate collectible for "Little House on the Prairie" fans!
Whispers have come our way from unofficial sources during the past week or two, but now we've finally seen the official, formal word sent to retailers today by distributor Lionsgate Entertainment: on March 25th we will get DVD ($29.98 SRP on 6 discs) AND HIGH-DEF BLU-RAY DISC ($38.99 SRP on 5 discs) releases of Little House on the Prairie - Season 1: Collector's Edition!!!

As the studio description quoted above explains, this title will include the original pilot telefilm which began it all. Extras also include the Original Screen Tests Featuring Michael Landon and Melissa Gilbert, as well as a 40th Anniversary Documentary: "The 'Little House' Phenomenon, Part One - A Place in Television History." Both versions are also closed captioned and include subtitles in English (both formats), Spanish (both), French (DVD only) and Farsi (Blu-ray only).

The DVD version has an English 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack, and the Blu-ray sports an English soundtrack in 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. Both versions will even come with the option to get UtraViolet digital downloads of the episodes! Packaging isn't available yet, but stay tuned. In the meantime, you can pre-order these from right away (both listings are marked "DVD," but the higher-priced one erroneously marked that way is actually the Blu version!).
