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.

It’s been over two decades since Johnny Depp played Edward Scissorhands in the beloved Tim Burton movie of the same name. The actor has gone on to become one of the biggest stars on the planet, but recently decided to play the character again, and in the most unexpected of places.
Depp was asked to get back into his 22-year-old character to voice a cutaway joke on the Fox animated series, Family Guy. As it turns out, the actor is a fan of the show and was happy to oblige.
