'Treasure Island' stars Emmy® winner Eddie Izzard (“The Riches,”), Elijah Wood ('Lord of the Rings' films), Golden Globe® winner Donald Sutherland ('Hunger Games,' 'Citizen X'), Toby Regbo ('Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1'), Rupert Penry-Jones ('Match Point,' “Whitechapel”) and Daniel Mays ('The Adventures of Tintin').

Specs haven't been confirmed yet, but supplements will include cast interviews and a commentary with Steve Barron.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray set is $29.95.
