Fox has officially announced that it's bringing the Robin Williams comedy smash 'Mrs. Doubtfire' to Blu-ray this May

The studio first leaked word of a high-def release for 'Mrs. Doubtfire' last month, when it revealed plans for a Father's Day-themed Blu-ray promotion that included the Chris Columbus-directed hit.

Now the studio has confirmed a May 13 arrival for the $200 milliion-grossing blockbuster, with the Blu-ray edition retaining all of the extras found on the previous standard-def DVD release.

Bonus features are extensive, with four featurettes ("From Man to Mrs. The Evolution of Mrs. Doubtfire," "Aging Gracefully: A Look Back at Mrs. Doubtfire," "Meet Mrs. Doubtfire," "Original 1993 Featurette"), 22 deleted and alternate scenes, 3 still galleries ("Behind the Scenes," "Publicity," Theatrical Posters") and a suite of three theatrical trailers and two TV spots.

Tech specs boast 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video, an English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track (48kHz/16-bit) and French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround dubs and subtitle options.

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray disc has been set at $39.98.
