Fans of “Firefly” must have been extra good this year. Fox just announced that Joss Whedon’s sci-fi series will be available on Blu-ray in time for the holiday shopping season.
“Firefly - The Complete Series” will include all 14 episodes in HD, as well as a “Firefly Reunion” and episode commentary. Other extras include a few featurettes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and Alan Tudyk’s audition tape. Each of the dual-layer 50GB discs feature widescreen 1.78:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. The 3-disc set will retail for $90.
Part sci-fi, part western, “Firefly” focuses on the Serenity, a transport ship without a home planet. The crew includes Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, and Ron Glass. The show was a cult hit, much like Whedon’s other foray into TV, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” (He also has Fox’s “Dollhouse” coming this fall.)
“Firefly - The Complete Series” will be available on Blu-ray on November 11.
