After a two-day long hype which had us sitting on pins and needles about what exciting news super producer/director Jerry Bruckheimer was about to reveal regarding the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Bruckheimer today took to Twitter to reveal that Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides would be available to own on Disney 3D Blu-ray and DVD on October 18, 2011.
This, of course, just confirms what we had already reported nearly a month ago. Although we couldn’t locate the original tweet to complement Bruckheimer’s, we were able to find one of the re-tweets courtesy of a reader of ours.
Bruckheimer did manage to trump us in one area, however. He also included a sneak peek at one of the bonus features that will be available with the 3D Blu-ray release, this one focusing on mermaids.
Fortunately, it’s only our butts that turned red from the pins and needles, and not our faces (this time).
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is currently available for pre-order as a 5-disc Limited Edition 3D Blu-ray combo pack or as part of a spectacular 15-disc collection of the entire series (thus far).
