The classic 1991 Steve Martin comedy and its sequel are getting a Blu-ray double feature in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Disney/Buena Vista is preparing 'Father of the Bride / Father of the Bride Part II' for Blu-ray on May 15.
Celebrate the platinum anniversary of the unforgettable comedy classic 'Father Of The Bride' plus the uproarious follow-up 'Father Of The Bride, Part II' on Blu-ray for the first time ever. Screen legends Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and Martin Short star in these warm and witty family favorites, complete with a new digital restoration! Things get out of hand for befuddled father George Banks (Martin) when his young daughter unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. Life gets even crazier in the side-splitting sequel when his daughter and his wife (Keaton) both announce they are pregnant, and George desperately tries to capture the wild and crazy days of his youth but winds up looking like a jerk.
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio commentary, Steve Martin and Martin Short Interview Each Other, and An Invitation to Father of the Bride.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
