    Scott Essman sent this into the CHFB:

    I'm hopeful for a new transfer that'll done in HD and released on Blu-ray. This new documentary will almost certainly have been done in HD.

    Yeah - strange there's no mention of what they've done to the actual film.

    The bastards are going to turn the hi-def screw when the Universal classics hit the format.

    I need these on Blu-Ray! No need to buy any of them again on DVD, that would be a waste.

    DVDTimes has posted the official specs and cover art:

    No mention of a new transfer, so it's doubtful we'll be seeing a Blu-ray release. Hopefully with the Wolfman remake we'll get some classics next year.

    I can't stand these releases as I already own the Legacy Collection which contains the entire Mummy series and a few great extras. If they have to re-release I'd wish they'd just leave all of the sequels included so then I could just replace my old copy.
