MGM to Unleash 'Igor' on Blu-ray

Posted Fri Nov 21, 2008 at 10:00 AM PST by Peter Bracke

MGM has announced plans to bring the animated adventure 'Igor' to Blu-ray in late January.

Featuring the voices of John Cleese, Eddie Izzard, and Molly Shannon, the all-CGI ode to classic monster movies received scant theatrical distribution earlier this year. MGM will give the critically well-received family film a second shot when it releases the film on Blu-ray January 20 (day-and-date with the standard DVD).

Tech specs will see the 87-minute feature presented on a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround audio.

Announced extras thus far include the "Be an Igor" featurette, deleted scenes, and a blooper reel.

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

You'll find the latest specs for 'Igor' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under January 20.
