Don't have a cow, man! Fox has announced it will bring 'The Simpsons Movie' to Blu-ray day-and-date with the standard-def DVD this December.

After over a decade in development, 'The Simpsons Movie' lived up to the hype and emerged as one of the summer's biggest hits, with Bart & Co. netting a worldwide gross of over $500 million.

Fox will debut the Blu-ray and DVD day-and-date December 18, with both sharing identical extras (al though the Blu-ray versions will all be presented in full 1080 HD video).

Among the goodies are two audio commentaries with multiple cast and crew, three featurettes, deleted scenes, a Homer monologue from the "Tonight Show," and alternate character designs from the show's creator, Matt Groening.

The BD-50 dual-layer release will come with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

Fox has set a $39.98 MSRP for the Blu-ray.
