Indiana Jones whips onto Blu-ray later this year

Indiana Jones Blu rayIf 2011 was a good year for high-quality Blu-ray releases of older films– Star Wars, Akira and Jurassic Park for example — then 2012 is looking just as exciting, as not only are we expecting Jaws later in the year, but Lucasfilm has now announced Indiana Jones will be coming to the HD format too.

It’s coming up for ten years since Indiana Jones made his DVD debut, in an impressive box set with (at the time) all three films and a disc of bonus features. Since then we’ve had several re-releases and of course, the fourth film, which made a brief showing separately on Blu-ray in 2008.

The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-ray Collection will be coming in “Fall 2012”, and will contain Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, plus Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Like the release date, Lucasfilm has been similarly vague about the bonus features, only saying that it’ll be a best-of collection, with material taken from previous editions and a “few new surprises.” One can only hope the excellent feature length, making-of documentary found in the earlier box sets makes an appearance.

Now, due to the treatment of other beloved franchises by Messrs. Lucas and Spielberg recently, you’d be right to approach any new releases with a degree of trepidation. However, if Mr. Spielberg’s statements from the 30th anniversary Indy event stand true, we’ve got nothing to worry about.

According to Screenrant.com, he commented that the Blu-ray was the best Raiders had ever looked, adding “we haven’t removed anything, we haven’t added any CGI, there’s no digital enhancements.” And the world breathes a sigh of relief.

Now all we have to do is sit tight until the end of the year, although Amazon have the collection available for pre-order at $74.99 but with no release date, plus there is a 720p trailer for the set to check out too.
