The next batch of episodes from Matt Groening's cult animated series planned for Blu-ray in December have now been fully detailed.
As previously reported, 20th Century Fox will be releasing 'Futurama: Volume 7' on Blu-ray on December 11.
Phillip Fry is a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy whose life is going nowhere. When he accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999, he wakes up 1,000 years in the future and has a chance to make a fresh start. He goes to work for the Planet Express Corporation, a futuristic delivery service that transports packages to all five quadrants of the universe. His companions include the delivery ship's captain, Leela, a beautiful one-eyed female alien who kicks some serious butt, Bender, a robot with very human flaws, and Professor Farnsworth, his eccentric mad-scientist boss, who is actually his great great great... nephew.
The boxed set will include 13 hilarious episodes spread across two Blu-ray discs.
The Blu-rays will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Full-length Commentary on All 13 Episodes; Bonus Commentary on Episode 7.02, "A Farewell To Arms," by the Animators of Rough Draft Studios; Alternate Ending for "Zapp Dingbat"; Christopher Tyng's Big Score: A Jam Session with Futurama's Innovative Composer; Futurama Karaoke: Sing Along with Your Favorite Characters; Möbius Trip: Infinite Futurama Screen Loops; and Too Good For TV: A Smorgasbord of Deleted Scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
