Posted Fri Mar 6, 2009 at 08:00 AM PST by Peter Bracke

'Spaceballs' is coming to Blu-ray, with MGM setting a mid-June arrival for the Mel Brooks comedy classic.

One of the first (and best) of the 'Star Wars' parodies, 'Spaceballs' has earned a huge cult following over the past twenty years, and remains one of MGM's biggest catalog hits.

The studio, via Fox Home Entertainment, will debut the film on Blu-ray June 16 (MGM previously released a special edition DVD in 2002).

Tech specs will see 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 (1.85:1) and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

There is no word yet on confirmed supplements, but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
