Posted Tue Feb 25, 2014 at 08:00 AM PST by

Features have been revealed for Steven Spielberg's 1997 drama sailing to Blu-ray in May. Pre-orders are now available!

As previously reported, DreamWorks will be bringing 'Amistad' to Blu-ray on May 6.

Based on a true story, the movie chronicles the incredible journey of a group of enslaved Africans who overtake their captor's ship and attempt to return to their beloved homeland. When the ship, La Amistad, is seized, these captives are brought to the United States where they are charged with murder and await their fate in prison. An enthralling battle ensues that captures the attention of the entire nation, confronting the very foundation of the American justice system. But for the men and women on trial, it is simply a fight for the basic right of all mankind...freedom.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include a making-of featurette and the theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $22.98.
