Summit Entertainment has announced the DVD/Blu-ray details for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse DVD/Blu-ray. Scheduled for release on December 4 (perfectly timed for the holidays), the studio is shipping multiple versions including a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD, Single Disc Blu-ray, Single Disc DVD, and Blu-ray/DVD Combo. Get all that?
While getting the movie is great, most fans just want to know what are the extras. Summit has announced two different audio commentaries with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and author Stephanie Meyer and producer Wyck Godfrey; a 6-part “Making Of” documentary that takes you behind the scenes; deleted and extended scenes; a comprehensive photo gallery; music videos and more. No idea what “more” means but I do know the fans will be very happy with the audio commentaries as Pattinson didn’t record one for the last movie.
