Sci Fi Channel hits Head for DVD
A few forthcoming DVD announcements caught our eye and we share them with you as the holiday season rapidly approaches.
Fox Home Entertainment will be releasing a high-definition Blu-ray version of Stargate – The Ark of Truth on January 13, 2009. The standard release came out last March after airing on Sci Fi Channel. The retail price will be $34.99.
The video is a continuation of Stargate SG-1 after the weekly series’ story ended after 10 seasons.
Extras are expected to include the same from the standard edition.
• Commentary with Robert C. Cooper (Writer/Director/Producer), Christopher Judge (Teal’c) and Peter Woeste (Director of Photography)
• The Ark of Truth: Stargate at Comic-Con
• Uncovering The Ark of Truth Featurette
• Stargate SG-1: The Road Taken – Prelude to Stargate: The Ark of Truth
Meantime, Universal Home Entertainment has announced a January 6, 2009 release for the fourth season of Battlestar Galactica, shortly before the remaining ten episodes begin airing on Sci Fi Channel later that month.
According to Digital Bits, the 10-episode set will be on four discs complete with the broadcast and extended version of Razor and the Razor webisodes.
This is only planned as a standard DVD release. Apparently, Universal is waiting for the entire series to wrap before releasing any of it on Blu-ray.
Special features will include:
• Ron Moore’s podcast commentaries
• Deleted scenes
• Additional commentaries
• David Eick’s video blogs
• The Journey
• Cylons: The Twelve
