Warner Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray director Bill Kopp's Tom and Jerry Blast Off to Mars (2005). The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on October 16th.
Tom & Jerry mistakenly stow away on the first manned mission to Mars and discover we are NOT alone! Martians do exist! The furry duo must join forces with a young Martian girl to battle asteroid fields, the Martian invasion of Earth, and a gigantic alien robot bent on destroying anything & anyone in its path.

Why did it take so long for the Blu-Ray release in the USA? and why not announce further in advance? the movie was released over a year ago in Mexico/Spain, and Warner Bros. usually announce titles months ahead of time.
I recently imported the Blu-Ray release from Spain, since it seemed like Warner Bros has given up releasing their old animated DTVs on Blu-Ray. I would have waited, if the announcement was a few weeks earlier.
