Set includes new bonus features
Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, starring David Bowie, is getting the 4K Ultra HD treatment from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment for its 35th anniversary on August 17th. A 16-year-old girl (Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly, Best Supporting Actress, A Beautiful Mind, 2001) is given 13 hours to solve a dangerous and wonderful labyrinth and rescue her baby brother when her wish for him to be taken away is granted by the Goblin King, played by Bowie.
The film will be available as limited edition collectible set presented as a 28-page Digibook — featuring rare artwork, photography and early script pages, all from deep within the Henson Archives — styled to resemble Sarah’s book of The Labyrinth from the film.
The film will be presented in 4K resolution with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio, 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound and original theatrical two channel surround sound. New special features include more than 25 minutes of never-before-seen lost and alternate scenes with all-new commentary from Brian Henson. It also includes a recently uncovered collection of rare, original screen tests for the role of Sarah featuring Molly Ringwald, Trini Alvarado, Tracey Gold, Claudia Wells, Jill Schoelen, Maddie Corman and Danielle von Zerneck.
The set also comes with a Blu-ray Disc version, featuring video sourced from the 4K master, and a variety of bonus features including “The Henson Legacy” Featurette, Labyrinth Anniversary Q&A, “Remembering the Goblin King” Featurette, The Storytellers Picture-in-Picture, original making of documentary and more.
