Disney Confirms 'Lost: Season 3' Blu-ray Release

Posted Thu Aug 2, 2007 at 04:55 AM PDT by

After months of speculation, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed a December 11 release date for 'Lost: The Complete Third Season - The Unexplored Experience' on Blu-ray.

Rumblings of a high-def debut for 'Lost' first began back in May, when a December arrival date surfaced on various retailer websites. However, only days later Disney would officially deny the rumors, saying it had no plans to release any seasons of the series on high-def.

Then, early last week, listings for a Blu-ray version resurfaced on top retailer sites, including Amazon.com -- a strong indicator that the series would be hitting high-def after all.

Now, after all the twists and turns in the 'Lost' Blu-ray saga, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has finally confirmed that the third season of the hit series will indeed debut day-and-date on DVD and Blu-ray December 11 in a deluxe box set dubbed 'The Unexplored Experience.'

Though final specs have not yet been released, look for a six-disc set sporting all 23 third-season episodes in full 1080p and uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround.

Among the extras will be audio commentaries with cast and crew (on select episodes TBA), five making-of featurettes, deleted scenes and bloopers.

Disney has set a $124.99 list price for the set.
