Walt Disney Home Entertainment in the U.S. today announced the blu-ray release of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, for August 26th.

Whilst Disney failed to release full specs, they have released the following:

* Exclusive introduction by Tim Burton
* Audio Commentary by Tim Burton, director Henry Selick and composer Danny Elfman
* An original poem written by Burton and narrated by Christopher Lee
* Digital copy version of the film
* Tim Burton's Vincent short film
* Several featurettes including a tour of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion
* Making of

With Disney's track record, we can also reasonably expect Dolby TrueHD audio (yes!) and most, if not all of the original DVD features.

Scrub another title from my most wanted Blu-ray list.
