Brad Bird’s 1999 animated movie The Iron Giant will be remastered and enhanced with new footage for an upcoming cinematic re-release.
The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, will play in select theaters across the country on Wednesday, September 30 at 7 PM with an encore presentation on Sunday, October 4 at 12 PM. And if you miss the theater showing, a digital HD release will be available this fall.
John Rubey, Fathom Events CEO, said in a recent statement:
“We can’t wait to bring this family favorite back its home on the big screen. The Iron Giant is meant to be seen and heard in movie theaters and this is a great chance for fans new and old to enjoy this classic, remastered with new scenes.”
This is such a wonderful animated classic and I can’t wait to see it shined up with the extra footage. Check out a tweet about the release from Brad Bird after the break…
