Stargate: Atlantis - Blu-ray for 'The Complete Series': Online Listings give Date, Cost, Specs, Art


No official word from the studio(s), however, to confirm this pre-order info

A press release back in mid-2009 had the startling words that "The 'Stargate Atlantis Fans' Choice' Blu-ray disc is the only high definition release planned for the 'Stargate: Atlantis' series"...but has MGM changed their minds since then? As of this moment, nothing has been officially announced to press from MGM or their distributors at Fox Home Entertainment. And our retail contacts say that nothing's been generally announced to them, either.

However, there is a new pre-order listing at DVDEmpire.com for "Stargate: Atlantis - The Complete Series" on Blu-ray Disc format! It shows that all 5 seasons will be presented on a 20-disc set for $199.99 SRP, with a release date of July 26th. It goes on to mention specs that include widescreen video (presumably in high-def, since this is Blu-ray!), with audio in "ENGLISH: DTS-HD MA 5.1" , plus English subtitles. Our thanks to reader Matt Clayton for pointing this listing out to us.

So far Amazon.com is not taking pre-orders for this title, but they do have a listing for it that asks you to "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available." The interesting this about this listing, however, is that they have a look at early package art for this release, which we're displaying for you below. As you can see, the basic design is exactly like the Stargate: Atlantis - Complete Series Collection DVD set's packaging. However, there's some watermark-style text on the image which notes that this is "temporary art only," so this design could very well change.

Again, neither we nor our retail industry contacts have any sort of official word about this item from the studio; we're just passing along what we know from publicly visible e-tail postings. Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you as soon as we know more!

UPDATE: Just as we were posting this story, we did manage to speak to the studio, and confirmed that the title is coming. Hooray!
