Remastered version of Brad Bird's animated classic featuring two new scenes. In 1957, a gigantic iron man crash lands from outer space in Rockwell, Maine. After reassembling itself, the giant is discovered by nine-year-old Hogarth Hughes (voice of Eli Marienthal), who helps it to conceal itself while feeding on scrapyard cars. Hogarth is assisted by beatnik Dean McCoppin (Harry Connick Jr), unaware that government agent Kent Mansley (Christopher McDonald) is already on the trail of what he regards as an 'alien invader'.


Bonus contents
• The Giant's Dream (1080p; 1.78:1; 55:47): This new documentary serves as both a biography of Brad Bird, who began his career with an internship at Disney, and a detailed account of The Iron Giant's creation, which was Bird's feature debut after working on The Simpsons for eight seasons. A briskly edited combination of line drawings, rough animation sketches, test footage and interviews, the feature is narrated by Bird, an array of animators, producer Allison Abbate and several former executives. You emerge from "The Giant's Dream" with a renewed appreciation for the complexity of the teamwork required to produce feature-length animation. In a departure for an authorized documentary, "The Giant's Dream" openly acknowledges conflicts between the creative team and the studio, as well as within the creative team itself, and it addresses Warner's mistakes in marketing the film with rare candor.
• Commentary with Director Brad Bird, Head of Animation Tony Fucile, Story Department Head Jeff Lynch and Animation Supervisor Steven Markowski: This is the same commentary that appeared on the 2004 "Special Edition" DVD. It can be played with both the theatrical cut and the Signature Edition. For the latter, new inserts have been added in which Bird discusses the Signature Edition's changes. These occur at the following time marks: 15:51 (Annie and Dean); 29:18 (the Tomorrowland commercial); and 54:46 (Giant's Dream). In the main commentary, Bird and his collaborators identify the work of specific animators, discuss key story points and describe plot elements that were considered and abandoned.
• Deleted Scenes with Introduction by Brad Bird (Vintage 2003) (1080p; 1.33:1 & 2.40:1; 15:16): A "play all" function is included.
