At a press event for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, director Brad Bird said that his animated film, The Iron Giant, is in the works. Probably not very soon, but the news is good (not sure if this was already known or not)!

Good to hear this. Iron Giant was one of the best animated films of the 90s.

The last update I could find from Brad Bird in July of last year:

“@seberrett: (Iron Giant) blu-ray WHEN??!!”
Had conversations with WB about it, want new extras to be great, not just standard reissue.

Perhaps this is part of the problem. Bird is busy so there's no time to create a new transfer and some quality extras.

That would actually be the perview of Warner's George Feltenstein & Ned Price...all Bird would need to do is look at the new transfer and extras and sign off his approval once the work's done...

I was talking about e.g. audio commentary, interviews, deleted scenes (with additional audio commentary) etc. They need Bird and after that they can finish the extras.

 

Btw. Great interview here with Bird:

Not too surprising. Budgets at studios for new bonus content on catalog releases is essentially $0. Warner probably wants to just carry over previous bonus as currently constituted. If Bird wants to get some new material on there it'll likely need to be done extremely cheap or free.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

There's a twitter campaign going on. I've sent a polite request for them to special edition it or pass it to criterion.

Well, just about everyone and his uncle records commentaries and interviews for free for WHV, not sure why Brad Bird warrants an actual cost.

It still takes paying someone to record/shoot and assemble the audio and/or footage of the interviews and any other elements, and those people need to be paid for their services.
