Confirming previous rumors, Disney has announced a November Blu-ray debut for Pixar's 'Wall•E,' which will come to Blu-ray with exclusive content and Digital Copy.

As previously reported, Disney had earlier alerted retailers to a November 18 Blu-ray release for the Pixar blockbuster (day-and-date with the DVD), but the studio stopped short of officially announcing the date to the press or issuing specs.

The first confirmed details are now in, with Disney bringing 'Wall•E' to Blu-ray as a two-disc edition, along with single-disc and three-disc DVD configurations.

Extras on the Blu-ray will contain all of the DVD bonus features, including audio commentary with director Andrew Stanton, five featurettes ("Animation Sound Design: Building Worlds from the Sound Up," "Sneak Peek: WALL-E's Tour of the Universe," "The Pixar Story by Leslie Iwerks," "BnL Shorts," "Wall-E's Treasures and Trinkets"), deleted scenes, the new animated short: "Burn-E" and a "Lots of Bots" storybook.

Included on a second disc will be a Digital Copy of the film (in standard-def) playable on PCs and other portable video devices.

Exclusive to the Blu-ray release will be additional picture-in-picture commentary, and a suite of three as-yet-untitled interactive games

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