Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first Walt Disney animated classic and the first DVD to sell a million copies in a single day, will make its Blu-ray debut on Oct. 6 in a special combo pack ($39.99) that includes a DVD, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A two-disc standard DVD release ($29.99) will follow the combo pack by seven weeks, arriving in stores Nov. 24.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is hoping the early Blu-ray release will drive consumers to the new format. The classic retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale has never before been seen in high definition.

Snow White hasn't been available in any form since its first and only DVD release in 2001. The new release will include several all-new bonus features not included on the original 2001 edition.
