Blu-ray Firefly Set In Works

Jewel Staite, who played Kaylee on the much-loved Fox SF series Firefly, told conventioneers in Australia that a Blu-ray special edition of the short-lived show is coming soon, according to a report on TV Guide online.

Speaking at the 2008 Supernova Pop Culture Expo in Melbourne, Staite (Stargate Atlantis) said: "I just heard that they're re-releasing Firefly, a special edition of Firefly, in a box set. They actually asked me if I was able to come down to L.A. and do a commentary in the spring. So I think that would be fun."

TV Guide reported that the release she mentioned is indeed on its way to North America and will actually be coming out on Blu-ray high-definition disc. No timetable has been given for the disc's release.
