Hide the cheese! Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the rats of 'Ratatouille' will make their Blu-ray debut this November.

Due in stores November 6, day-and-date with the standard-def DVD version, the Blu-ray edition of 'Ratatouille' will boast a 1080p transfer in the film's original 2.40:1 aspect ratio and uncompressed PCM 5.1 audio (at 48kHz/24-bit).

Among the bonus features will be a new documentary on the making of the film, deleted scenes and the short film "Your Friend the Rat." Extra exclusive to the Blu-ray include "Gusteau's Gourmet Game" and a "Cine-Explore" mode, which Disney is dubbing the "ultimate behind-the-scenes innovative experience." (We hope to get further information soon on just what exactly this feature entails -- stay tuned!)

Disney has set a $34.95 list price for the Blu-ray version of 'Ratatouille.'

November 6 is turning out to be a quite a day for Pixar releases on Blu-ray, with Disney also set to debut both 'Cars' and 'The Pixar Short Film Collection.'

We've added 'Ratatouille' to our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it joins 'Cars' and 'The Pixar Short Film Collection.' Watch for box cover art to be revealed shortly.
