Director James Cameron is unlocking the secrets of Pandora and taking fans on a guided tour of his vision with the highly anticipated release of Avatar Extended Collector's Edition on Blu-ray and DVD on 15th November 2010 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

"I told our team --- let's do the ultimate box set of Avatar, with everything in it the fans could possibly want. There's an extended length cut that's sixteen minutes longer, plus documentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, artwork and over 45 minutes of deleted scenes. Everything worth putting into a special edition is in this set" said James Cameron.
The three-disc Avatar Extended Collector's Edition and Avatar Collector's Edition DVD will both feature the original theatrical release, a special edition re-release, and new collector's extended cut with over 15 more minutes including an exclusive alternate opening earth scene. Viewers will have the ability to journey to the far-reaches of Pandora with "Capturing Avatar" an in-depth feature length documentary covering the 16-year filmmaker journey that includes all new interviews with James Cameron, Jon Landau and cast and crew exploring Cameron's unique vision for the film now seen by more than 310 million people worldwide. The Oscar and Golden Globe winning epic is the highest grossing film of all time, taking in over $2.7 billion in worldwide box office. It is also the top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time. For the ultimate fan, the UK is also releasing a limited run of an Exclusive Collector's Edition Blu-ray Boxset with only 1000 copies available.
The Avatar Extended Collector's Edition Blu-ray will contain even more bonus material and will provide a compelling interactive viewing experience. Leveraging the unparalleled interactive technology of Blu-ray, fans can dive further into the world of the Na'vi and experience the international sensation from behind-the-scenes with a "master class" on the production of the film. Viewers can experience the full film in three stages of production: Performance Capture, Template and Final as well as a composite of all stages in Pandora's Box. This mode is complemented by interviews with James Cameron and the crew and ultimately serves as a complete and enlightening tutorial on the making of Avatar.
