When â€œThe Iron Giantâ€ arrived in theaters, it was hailed as an â€œinstant classicâ€ (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal). â€œImagine E.T. as a towering metal man, thatâ€™s the appeal of this enchanting animated featureâ€ (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). And the world soon learned another â€œgiantâ€ 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, â€œThe Iron Giantâ€ is the tale of an unlikely friendship between a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli Marienthal) and a giant robot, voiced by a then little-known actor named Vin Diesel. The voice cast also included Jennifer Aniston and Harry Connick Jr.
After The Iron Giant is re-released, the remastered version of the movie will be made available via digital retailers. No word yet, however, whether or not it will finally be released on Blu-ray for the first time.
