When James Cameron said Let’s do the ultimate box set of Avatar, with everything in it the fans could possibly want, Avatar buffs knew they would be in for something special, and they won’t be disappointed. The highly anticipated Blu-ray, three-disc Avatar Special Edition box set, which will hit the shops on 16th November, promises to deliver on all fronts.
It boasts an extended cut of the film with 16 minutes of extra footage, an alternative opening, a family audio track (with objectionable language removed), a documentary with the cast and crew, 45 minutes of deleted scenes as well as 17 featurettes covering performance capture, scoring the film, 3D fusion camera, stunts and much more.
Add to that an interactive scene deconstruction, exploring the various stages of production through three different viewing modes, the ‘Avatar Archives’including original script, and the extensive Pandorapedia and a BD-live Portal with even more additional bonus materials and you’ll see why this is shaping up to be one of the biggest Blu-ray releases of the year.
Apart from being the highest grossing film in history, Avatar is a joyous celebration of story craft and the visual possibilities of film. With pristine Blu-ray picture and sound it may just be the closest you’ll ever come to setting foot on James Cameron’s stunning blue world.
