The classic animated film “Iron Giant” is finally making it’s way to Blu-Ray in a Standard Edition and an Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The Collector’s Edition looks awesome and it’s definitely going to be a day one pick up for me. I’m sure most have seen this so I will not bother to review this until I have the Blu-Ray in hand and can judge how good the transfer will be. What do you guys think? Is anyone else planning on getting either edition? Below I have the Trailer, Special Features, and The Special Content only in the Ultimate Edition.
Official synopsis: When “The Iron Giant” arrived in theaters in 1999, it was hailed as an “instant classic” by Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal, and the world soon learned another giant had arrived as well: filmmaker Brad Bird, who made his stunning directorial debut with this film and has gone on to win two Oscars, as well as worldwide acclaim for his work on both animated and live-action features. Winner of nine Annie Awards, “The Iron Giant” has been re-mastered and enhanced with two all-new scenes.
