Landing on Shout! Factory’s Lap is Space: 1999 – Details on Blu-Ray Release

19 Jun

Just when fans os Gerry and Sylvia Anderson‘s epic sci-fi series, Space: 1999 thought the 30th Anniversary Edition was enough, Shout! Factory is doing one better with their upcoming release, coming July 16, 2019.

Six new features will be added which looks at the past and future of this series. The Surround sound remix has me intrigued and I’m tempted to pick up the entire series all over again. For Blu-ray enthusiasts, this version will mean fewer discs to flip (there’s 13 versus 18) when compared to the original.

New interviews with director Kevin Connor, actors Barbara Bain and Nick Tate, and new audio commentaries will be in this set, and for those wanting a keepsake, a snow globe is included! It has the Eagle Transporter landing on the Moon and this set is available for pre-order now at shoutfactory.com. The globe itself has a 4-inch circumference and sits on a 2-inch base.

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 Documentary Comes to Home Video!

If you are a huge Deep Space Nine Fan like me, trying to find a local theatre playing this documentary about this show is difficult. Not every town will offer it. Thankfully, Shout! Factory is releasing this product to home video so those who are looking for that love letter from outer space can get it. In what I believe made this series work is that directors Ira Steven Behr (showrunner) and David Zappone (producer of For the Love of Spock, The Captains) were on board for all seven seasons. Their vision never waned!

They are two of the many names who look back at What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  It’s a fascinating in-depth look at the past, present, and future of a series whose dark, edgy take on Gene Roddenberry’s vision was often misunderstood when it premiered but has grown into a beloved mainstay in the Star Trek franchise, What We Left Behind will be available August 6, 2019 on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital, as well as a Shout! Factory exclusive two-disc Special Edition Blu-ray.
