Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is preparing a 'Miracle' for Blu-ray, setting a mid-June bow for the sports hit.

Starring Kurt Russell in the inspirational, true-to-life drama of ice hockey coach Herb Brooks, who took the US Olympic team to glory against the Soviet Union, 'Miracle' will receive its Blu-ray debut on June 16.

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (2.35:1) and an English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

Bonus features include audio commentary with director Gavin O'Connor, director of photography Dan Stoloff and editor John Gilroy, the "Miracle ESPN Roundtable with Linda Cohn" TV excerpt, a quartet of featurettes ("Making of Miracle," "From Hockey to Hollywood: The Actors' Journeys," "The Sound of Miracle," "First Impressions: Herb Brooks with Kurt Russell and the Filmmakers") and outtakes.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.99.
