Raiders of the Lost Ark films will release to Digital HD, Blu-ray singles to follow

Raiders of the Lost Ark Blu-rayOn Nov. 19, the first three films in the Raiders of the Lost Ark franchise will release to Digital HD format, including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. This will be the first time the films will be available as single titles in high-definition, as Paramount’s Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures on Blu-ray (released a year ago) only offered the titles in a 5-disc boxed set. Following the Digital HD releases, the films will also hit shelves on Blu-ray Disc as single titles on Dec. 17.

The original film in the series, Raiders of the Lost Ark, was digitally restored for 1080p presentation in 2012 under the direction of Steven Spielberg and sound designer Ben Burtt. The Blu-ray Disc will feature three different trailers all in HD, a Digital Copy via iTunes, and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese languages.

2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will also bow to Digital HD, and the film will be re-released to a new 2-disc Blu-ray edition that includes behind-the-scenes special features.
