On Tuesday, Twentieth Century Fox is finally releasing a three-disc “special edition” of Avatar that will not only include a version of the movie with 16 minutes of extra footage that was seen during its last theatrical outing, but also over 45 minutes of deleted sequences. In a statement, James Cameron said, “I told our team — let’s do the ultimate box set of Avatar, with everything in it the fans could possibly want. … Everything worth putting into a special edition is in this set.” The set also includes a “making of” documentary, Capturing Avatar. When the film was initially released on disk, Cameron said that he did not want to include “extras” so that he could use all of the available space on it to present the highest-quality image and audio possible. Appraising the new edition for the Los Angeles Times, Noel Murray wrote on Sunday, “The sound and picture aren’t quite as expressive as on the Blu-ray that came out this year, but nontechnophiles shouldn’t recognize much difference.”
