We've been telling you
- and not just recently but for a while now
! - that Image Entertainment is working on a high-def Blu-ray Disc release of Rod Serling's original 1959 series, The Twilight Zone - Season 1
. It's been more than just a rumor for a while now, since Amazon.com has been accepting pre-orders for the title
since April. But now Image has officially announced the details!
The Twilight Zone - Season 1
will arrive on Blu-ray this coming September 14th
, a 5-disc set that - as previously reported - will cost $99.98 SRP. You can pre-order it at a nice discount from Amazon, however. Video is remastered in high definition, but retains the original 1.33:1 aspect ratio as originally broadcast. Similarly, the audio retains the original English mono format as it was first aired, but it will be an uncompressed PCM track for the very best possible sound quality. There will also be English subtitles, too.
Information about any extras has not been listed by Image at this time (although we're sure it will have, at minimum, the same special features included in Image's 2004 DVD release
...and probably some new supplements beyond that!). Stay tuned for updates. For now, though, here's a nice big look at the packaging:
