Brad Bird's The Iron Giant will return to theaters this fall

Brad Bird didn't exactly make waves with his latest feature, TOMORROWLAND. Given the man's track record, it seems fair that a dent would finally be made in an otherwise immaculate filmography. Back in 1999, Bird released his first feature-film, THE IRON GIANT. The animated tale followed an unlikely friendship between a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli Marienthal) and a giant robot, voiced by a then little-known actor named Vin Diesel. The movie's audience has snowballed since then, and if you're a longtime fan or haven't had the pleasure, it looks like a great opportunity is coming up in a few months.

Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are bringing THE IRON GIANT: Signature Edition to select theaters for a special event screening on Wednesday, September 30th, and an encore event on Sunday, October 4th (click here for screenings in your area). This Signature Edition will be completely re-mastered and featuring two new scenes. Brad Bird revealed the news himself via his Twitter account.

I imagine the inevitable Blu-ray release of this edition will be announced in the coming days, although I am curious as to what the new scenes are and if they were done just for this release, or were just deleted scenes from '99. Either way, it's great to see Brad Bird's first feature get some love over 10 years later!

THE IRON GIANT will hit select theaters via Fathom Events on Wednesday, September 30th.

Disney trying to recover losses from Tomorrowland? Not that Iron Giant wasn't great and all, but maybe calling a spade a spade...

"Suuuperman!"

This is great news, I hope I can make it to a screening. I saw this in theaters when it first came out and loved it then as much as I do now.
