First Three ‘Indiana Jones’ To Be Released In HD For The First Time!

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

THN are very pleased to announce that the legendary INDIANA JONES is set to have the first three films re-released individually in high definition when they arrive on Digital HD November 19th and on Blu-ray with a digital copy available through iTunes December 17th from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

I think it’s safe to say that these are some of the most recognisable action-adventure films in the genre since it first opened in 1981 and, I for one, never tire of the trilogy – I would even give the fourth an honourable mention for the sake of nostalgia. While you’re here, you should also check out details for the MediCinema charity screening and auction that’s coming up very soon in London and is a brilliant event to get involved with, find all the details by clicking here.

In the meantime, check out all the official details below:

Under the supervision of director Steven Spielberg and sound designer Ben Burtt, Raiders of the Lost Ark was painstakingly restored in 2012 with careful attention to preserving the original look, sound and feel of the iconic film. Own this meticulously restored version of the cinematic classic that started it all, as well as previously remastered versions of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, each with pristine picture and sound in sparkling high definition. 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will also be available on Digital HD and in a two-disc Blu-ray set with behind-the-scenes special features.

    On HD for the “first time”? They’ve been out on Blu-Ray for over a year now, what is this article talking about?

    “Individual releases” aka they have literally NOTHING more interesting to talk about than the fact that you can buy some old movies separately.
