The Walking Dead Will Rise Again On A Special Edition Blu-Ray


The Walking Dead Will Rise Again On A Special Edition Blu-Ray

The Walking Dead will rise again on October 4th with a Blu-Ray re-release. Considering the original Blu-Ray for The Walking Dead Season 1 came out back in March, this is kind of an odd announcement. No doubt it’s being re-released to promote the upcoming second season but still, is anyone actually going to buy it?

We’ll be getting two versions, the 3 disc special edition and a limited edition. Both will include new special features that are as follows:

  • Pilot Episode: The B&W Version
  • Audio Commentaries On All 6 episodes
  • We Are The Walking Dead
  • Bring Out The Dead: KNB And The Art of Making Zombies
  • Digital Decay: The VFX of The Walking Dead
  • No More Room in Hell: The Walking Dead Phenomenon
  • Adapting The Dead
  • Killer Conversations: Frank Darabont & Greg Nicotero
  • In addition to the new features, the limited edition will come with an exclusive wearable zombie mask from NECA designed by the series own make-up artist, Greg Nicotero. Also, the first 100,000 units of the Blu-ray and Limited Edition Collector’s Tin together includes an EXCLUSIVE Cryptozoic The Walking Dead trading card.

    Aside from hardcore fans of the series, I’m not sure who would buy these new editions. Obviously if you haven’t yet picked up the Blu-Ray then this is the way to go but for those who have, people likely won’t feel like shelling out more money for nothing but a couple new special features. TV shows usually don’t get special edition re-releases on Blu-Ray and I’m surprised that they’re doing one for The Walking Dead.

    I already own season 1 on Blu-Ray and as much as I like the show, I can’t see myself buying a whole new Blu-Ray set less than a year after I got the first one. It just doesn’t make much sense.

    What do you think? Will you be re-buying it?
