    "Now then… one of the things it looks like we may learn about down at Comic-Con is that Warner Home Video may be planning to release The Iron Giant: Signature Edition back into theaters (as a Fathom Event here) on 9/30, and also on Blu-ray this fall. The film will apparently be remastered with new scenes. As you know, we reported way back in April of last year (see here) that director Brad Bird was in talks with the studio about releasing the film on the format. It seems that the studio is going to be heavily promoting the title down at the Con as both a Fathom theatrical re-release event (remastered with new scenes) and also on Blu-ray, including with a massive statue of the robot from the film, all of which was just promoted by Bird in a Tweet today. You can see the image he tweeted at the left there."

    ooooooh - a nice set with a statue of the iron giant would be a definite yes from me. Such a great and sad film.

    "It’s official… sort of: Warner Home Video has just announced that Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant: Signature Edition is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase on streaming, digital HD, and UltraViolet (you can watch it here on Amazon now). Before you get bent out of shape about that, however, the press release also says that the film will be available on Blu-ray Disc in 2016. As many of you know, Bird has been lobbying WB hard for the film to be released as a really good special edition on Blu-ray. It’s possible that he needs the extra time to work on the special features. So while it’s not quite the news we’ve been waiting for, it’s good to know that a Blu-ray release is coming… even if fans will have to be patient a little while longer for it."

    Blu-ray News – Iron Giant is officially coming to BD in 2016, plus Shaun the Sheep, Wolf Totem & Man in the High Castle

    Warners have announced the US release date: 6th September 2016:

    "The big news today is that Warner Home Video has just officially announced the long-awaited Blu-ray release of The Iron Giant: Signature Edition and The Iron Giant: Ultimate Collector’s Edition on 9/6 (SRP $14.97 and $74.99)! Both versions will include the Theatrical and Signature Editions of the film, the all-new The Giant’s Dream documentary on the making of the film, audio commentary on the theatrical cut by director Brad Bird, additional scenes including the alternate opening, mini-documentary segments, the Signature Edition trailer, a Brad Bird trailer, a Motion Gallery, and 3 additional featurettes (Teddy Newton: The X Factor, Duck and Cover Sequence, and The Voice of the Giant). Meanwhile, the Ultimate Collector’s Edition will also include both films on DVD (in addition to Blu-ray), a personal letter from Bird, a hardcover art book, collectible Mondo art cards, and a 4-inch plastic articulated Iron Giant statue. Here’s a look at the final cover artwork for the UCE box (click on the image to pre-order on Amazon.com – click here for the Signature Edition BD link)..."

    Any news of a UK release? Have been waiting for a CE to be released for years!

    I see pre-orders are avalable on Amazon.com, I wonder if it will be a region-free release...

    I don't think Warner have ever region locked their discs so it's likely going to be RF.
