This was hinted at by The Bits, but nice to see confirmation. One of the all-time greats, it should looks wonderful in HD. Wish it wasn't one of those silly digibooks though.

I'm excited to see this myself! Always thrilled to see another catalog title come to BD with deluxe treatment.

I will buy the digibooks, but usually wait for the price to come down a bit.
