M. Night Shyamalan's live-action spin on the hit Nickelodeon animated series will be bending Blu-ray this November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount is working on 'The Last Airbender' for Blu-ray on November 16.

The Blu-ray features 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Origins of the Avatar: Birth of the mythology from the original co-creators of the animated show, Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Concept art from the popular series provides further perspective into how the story would eventually reincarnate into an epic feature film (in HD); Deleted scenes (in HD); and Outtakes (in HD).

The release will also be available in a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Pack that appears to add: Avatar Annotations (Picture-in-picture on select scenes) – Insights with cast and crew; Discovering The Last Airbender (nine-part documentary in HD); Siege of the North: Get transported to the frozen realm of the Northern Water Tribe and the largest indoor film set ever built on the U.S. east coast (in HD); and Katara for a Day: Spend a day on the set with Nicola Peltz (in HD).

A 3D version of the film hasn't been announced despite being converted for 3D during its theatrical run.

Suggested list price for the single disc Blu-ray is $41.99 while the combo pack is $49.99.
