UPDATES: This Blu-ray is now available for pre-order over at Amazon. CBS Home Entertainment has just released an e-mail with the following info that officially confirms the release. I’ll try to get further info about it. I’ve also just now updated this story with the official Blu-ray artwork (above). From that artwork, we can tell that it will come as a 2-disc set and that the mini-series has been “brilliantly restored.” This is great news, considering how Mick Garris expressed some concerns when I spoke to him in regards to this as the story was developing. More on that below but first the info sent out.
Title: Stephen King’s The Stand
Street Date: September 24, 2019
Description: The Stand is a post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel by American author Stephen King. It expands upon the scenario of his earlier short story “Night Surf” and presents a detailed vision of the total breakdown of society after the accidental release of a strain of influenza that had been modified for biological warfare causes an apocalyptic pandemic, killing off over 99% of the world’s population
The Blu-ray is listed now over at retailer Best Buy but the pre-order is not yet functional – so it seems. Lastly, after the break, you can find some of a conversation that I had (along with some readers) with the director of the mini-series Mick Garris about this upcoming Blu-ray release on Twitter.
