Paramount Home Video and Lucasfilm have officially announced the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade individually for the first time ever in High Definition. As you may recall, the original Indiana Jones trilogy films were previously only released as part of the Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures box set, forcing fans to own the much despised fourth installment Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

(A side rant: the box set didn’t feature the television series The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, yet still claimed to be the “Complete Adventures.”)

Now the first three films will be released on bare-bones Blu-ray discs (with a digital copies available through iTunes) on December 17th, 2013. Digital HD versions via streaming and download services will be available earlier on November 19th, 2013. Read the full press release with full special feature details after the jump, and see all the new cover art.
