Get ready to vote for Pedro in high-def, with Fox announcing an early-February Blu-ray release for the comedy cult classic 'Napoleon Dynamite.'

The sleeper hit of 2004 and the film that made Jon Heder a star, 'Napoleon Dynamite' is set to make its Blu-ray debut on February 3. (Fox previously-released a special edition DVD version in late 2004.)

Tech specs include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and an English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track, plus French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and subtitle options.

Supplement details have yet to be confirmed, but expect a package comparable to the previous DVD release. We'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
