    Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams
    Spy Kids 3: Game Over
    Just in time for the new theatrical film Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World releasing in 3-D nationwide on August 19, 2011, - Lionsgate will debut the three Miramax films that started it all on Blu-ray Disc - Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams and Spy Kids 3: Game Over - in the beginning of August. These three titles are presented for the very first time in 1080P High Definition and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Directed by Robert Rodriguez (The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl, Sin City), the films feature star-studded casts that include Antonio Banderas (Desperado), Alexa Vega (Twister) and Carla Gugino (Sucker Punch) and feature guest appearances by Teri Hatcher (TV's "Desperate Housewives"), Steve Buscemi (Big Fish), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky), Salma Hayek (Frida), Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy) and Cheech Marin (Cars). Combined, these family films grossed more than $460 million worldwide. In addition, all three releases come packed with fun special features that kids will love including the "10-Minute Film School," deleted scenes and multiple featurettes. Each Blu-ray Disc premiere will include a digital copy of the film.
    Spy Kids
    Masters of disguise, innovators of invention, and superstars of sleuthing, Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) and Ingrid (Carla Gugino) are the best secret agents on Earth. Working for rival nations, they are sent to kill each other but instead fall in love. Now proud parents, they are called back to duty nine years later when their former colleagues start vanishing one by one thanks to evil genius Fegan Floop (Alan Cumming). But when they too disappear, there are only two people in the world who can rescue them...their kids! This high-octane adventure from director Robert Rodriguez is a must-see for everyone in the family.

    The pint-sized spy siblings are back in action! Having joined the family spy business, Juni (Daryl Sabara) and Carmen (Alexa Vega) rise up to save the planet from a mad scientist (Steve Buscemi) living on a remote island populated by all kinds of dangerous, crazy creatures. As this bizarre environment wreaks havoc on their gadgets, the Spy Kids must rely on their smarts - and each other - to save the day!

    Spy Kids 3: Game Over
    The Spy Kids have entered a new dimension that will test their abilities like never before! Under-age agents Juni (Sabara) and Carmen (Vega) embark on their most mind-blowing mission yet: journeying inside a virtual-reality video game world designed to disorient them. Relying on their bravery, cool gadgets, lightning-quick reflexes - and, most importantly, their family - the Spy Kids must battle through level after level of the game as they race against the clock to save the world yet again from a new megalomaniacal villain, the Toymaker (Sylvester Stallone).

    Too bad they're not offering Spy Kids 3-D in real 3D rather than anaglyph as the first DVD was done with.

    Ouch! $19.99 each? I saw the title and was hoping for a set will all three for around $35 MSRP. Oh well, I'll just have to find some other Robert Rodriguez film to show the kids

    I have one question about the release of the original Spy Kids. Will we finally get the Director's Cut this time. I have even read that a commentary was recorded for it. Spy Kids was rereleased in theaters August 8, 2001 (4 months after it premiered) with additional footage that has never made it to home video. I haven't read anywhere about the extra footage being provided but I really hope it is this time.

    I was expecting a cheap set too. Oh well.


    My kid likes Shark Boy & Lava Girl; would it stand to reason that he'd like these too?
