If you’re headed to the theater this weekend to see James Cameron’s Avatar: Special Edition with its whopping 8 ½ extra minutes of footage, then hold on to your banshee (until you ditch it for a Great Leonopteryx) because the special edition DVD and Blu-ray is going to have 16 minutes of additional footage.  THR reports that the new scenes will “involve action sequences and narrative-deepening extensions of key scenes involving the blue-skinned Na’vi of Pandora and their human visitors.”  Said producer Jon Landau, “There’s a whole new scene that takes place in the (Na’vi) school, there’s more night bioluminescence, there’s new creatures, and there is a new action scene. The scenes don’t just feel like added scenes — they are very organic to the story and embellish it.”  Unfortunately, producer Landau doesn’t add, “Oh, and ponytail fucking.  Lots and lots of ponytail fucking.”

Avatar set DVD and Blu-ray sales records when the bare-bones release hits shelves in April.  The special edition DVD and Blu-ray are set to be released this November. The 3D Blu-ray is being held until 2011 because Fox and Cameron want to wait until more households have 3DTVs.
