Warner Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Forbidden Planet 50th Anniversary Edition for 14th November 2006. Considered by many the most influential science fiction film ever made until the Star Wars era, Warner are releasing Forbidden Planet in both 50th Anniversary 2-Disc Special Edition and Ultimate Collectors Edition versions. The film, in a new widescreen version, has been digitally transferred from fully restored new film and audio elements. The remarkable electronic soundtrack has been remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1.

A pioneering work whose ideas and style influenced countless cinematic space voyages that followed -- Star Wars, Star Trek, Lost in Space, 2001: A Space Odyssey, among others -- Forbidden Planet is based on Shakespeares The Tempest and stars Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, Leslie Nielsen, Warren Stevens, Earl Holliman and Richard Anderson. It also marks the motion picture debut of Robby the Robot. Fred McLeod Wilcox directed the Cyril Hume screenplay.

More than four hours of special features in the 2-Disc Special Edition include commentary, additional scenes, two follow-up vehicles starring Robby the Robot plus three documentaries. Also of special note is the lost footage, which features preliminary takes of various special effects including the space ship and interior and exteriors. Very few people knew of the existence of footage, which, since the 50s, had bounced around to various stock houses and vaults, simply marked as The Saucer Footage. Star Wars special effects artist Dennis Muran, who had learned of the footage in the 70s, brought it to the attention of WHV which finally tracked it down in New York City.
