Default Back to the Future trilogy coming to Blu-ray 2009

I found this posted on the digitalbits website today

Quote:
...at a recent charity screening of Back to the Future..., writer and co-producer Bob Gale told fans that Universal has begun planning and preparing a Blu-ray Disc edition of the trilogy (likely for release in 2009) and that the new, remastered digital prints would be used for the discs.

Hopefully it won't have the same mis-framing issue that the 1st pressing of SD DVD had on parts 2 and 3.

Default BTTF on Blu = me happy.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! This is great news.

I hope that:
1) It doesn't cost an arm and a leg (I'll still buy it even if it does but still)

2) It gets released 1st quarter 2009 (I know it won't, I just don't want to have to wait)

3) Has lossless audio, PiP & web features, each movie is on a 50GB platter and we get an entire extra disc of special features.

EDIT: Ditto on the framing issues. I had to go through all of hoops to get my DVDs replaced. I can't imagine that they'd make the same mistake again though....

Nice, I want the Star Wars and Alien series before this, though. But honestly, I like the movies, but not enough to re-buy it, Blu-ray or not.
