At long last, the other trilogy that made Harrison Ford a household name is finally coming to Blu-ray. I’m talking about Indiana Jones of course and I’m also deliberately forgetting the fourth film in the series (Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), which is part of the franchise in name only, not spirit.
In any event, you can own Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade in what the Lucasfilm press release calls “the ultimate experience.” The release will not only contain all four movies, but also a “best of” collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and a few new “surprises.”
There’s no specific release date announced, the press release simply states that high-def Indy is coming this Fall. Hopefully, this release will be devoid of any Lucas ‘additions’, edits or overall retcon. Please, oh please – just leave the movies in their original pristine glory.
