Posted Mon Apr 16, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Captain Ahab will be hunting a great white dragon (you read that right: dragon) on Blu-ray this July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Arc Entertainment is preparing 'Age of the Dragons' for Blu-ray on July 24.

'Age of the Dragons' is an adaptation of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick. Set in a medieval realm where Captain Ahab and crew hunt dragons for the vitriol that powers their world, Ishmael, a charismatic harpooner and his friend Queequeg join their quest. Ahab's adopted daughter Rachel, beautiful and tough, runs the hunting vessel. Ahab's obsession to seek revenge on a great White Dragon that slaughtered his family when he was young and left his body scarred and mauled, drives the crew deeper into the heart of darkness. In the White Dragon's lair Ahab's Secrets are revealed and Rachel must choose between following him on his dark quest or escaping to a new life with Ishmael.

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $20.99.
