It was only a matter of time... The first beloved Disney classic to hit the world of Blu-ray was Sleeping Beauty. Scott called it "Simply Aurorable." called it a "must-own" title. One would imagine that the next up would be another famous princess, but instead, Disney decided to revel in puppetry with Pinnochio. But it was only a matter of time before the tiaras came back.

The Hollywood Reporter posts that one of the other famous princesses is finally getting the crisp, Blu-ray treatment. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first animated classic from Walt, the first DVD to sell a huge million in one day, will hit Blu-ray shelves on October 6. That date will bring a special combo pack that includes a DVD, and then on November 24, a two-disc standard DVD will be released -- just in time for Christmas! Like Sleeping Beauty, this release will be full of features, many of which are new, and weren't on the first and only DVD release in 2001.

I never had any doubt that the world of Sleeping Beauty would look gorgeous on Blu-ray, but it will be interesting to see how the format handles super-old animation like what's included in Snow White. The DVD made it "pop," but what will Blu-ray make of those pesky dwarves?

And when will Cinderella mop herself Blu?
