It has been almost twenty-five years since Tim Burton‘s imaginative fable Edward Scissorhands enchanted audiences around the world with its haunting visuals, dark humor, and a performance by Johnny Depp in the title role that to this day continues to be ranked among the superstar’s finest.
Later this fall, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will re-release Scissorhands on Blu-ray to mark the occasion of its silver anniversary. The first time the film was released in the format, it received a disappointing transfer and a few modest bonus features (including a director’s commentary), but the commemorative set Fox has assembled will undergo a much-needed restoration and most likely be upgraded in the supplements department. It will also come packaged with some collectible goodies inspired by the film.
The new Blu-ray will be available for pre-order at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and those attendees of the convention who take the plunge will also be able to get their hands on an exclusive limited-edition lithograph created by artist Mark Englert in collaboration with Gallery 1988.
You can check out both the Blu-ray package art and the lithograph, provided by Entertainment Weekly, here below.
