The beginning for WB animation on BluRay?

To quote Futurama: Great news everyone! DVDTown has posted that Warner Bros plans to release the first season of Justice League on BluRay on August 19th. Hopefully, this will only be the first release that will eventually see all of the great series in the Bruce Timm created universe (1992-2005) come to BluRay.

Alas, it must be said, the first season of Justice League (2001-2002) was arguably one of the weakest seasons of any such show. Trying to make something markedly less dark and more kid friendly than the previous Batman and Superman shows, they have admitted to overcompensating and creating a relatively flatter and less poignant entertainment than was the norm. Season Two, however, rectified all of these issues and was every bit as good as it should have been.

The current standard-def Justice League episodes look pretty terrific up-converted, so I can only imagine what these will look like. Please, if you're at all a fan of this stuff, buy this so A) we eventually get Batman The Animated Series on BluRay and B) we don't get a redux of Gargoyles, where the third and final box set to complete the series remains unreleased because Disney didn't like the sales numbers for the second boxed set.
