Make way for a new queen on high-def, when Universal Studios Home Entertainment debuts the acclaimed epic 'Elizabeth' on September 18.

Featuring an Oscar-nominated performance by Cate Blanchett, 'Elizabeth's HD DVD debut is timed to coincide with the upcoming theatrical release of the long-awaited sequel, also due this September.

No supplemental details have yet been released by Universal for the title, though tech specs include the studio's usual 1080p/VC-1 transfer and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround track (1.5mbps).

The disc is set to retail for a suggested $28.95 list price.
