The hit Broadway musical is planned for Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, DreamWorks is preparing 'Shrek the Musical' for Blu-ray on October 15.

'Shrek The Musical' tells the story of a swamp-dwelling ogre who goes on a life-changing adventure to reclaim the deed to his land. Joined by a wise-cracking donkey, this unlikely hero fights a fearsome dragon, rescues a feisty princess and learns that real friendship and true love aren't only found in fairy tales.

Featuring a fantasic score of 17 all-new songs, 'Shrek The Musical' was filmed on stage to capture the magic of a Broadway performance and stars an amazing celebrated cast including Brian d'Arcy James (Shrek), Sutton Foster (Fiona), Daniel Breaker (Donkey), Christopher Sieber (Lord Farquaad), and John Tartaglia (Pinocchio). The film was shot live on Broadway with 10 cameras and directed by Michael Warren.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Shrek The Musical Songbook with Sing-Along and a Blu-ray exclusive featurette entitled From Swamp To Stage: The Making of Shrek the Musical.
