Also included a set of extra materials:

* Deleted scenes - Presents footage from a "workprint" used by the film's composers, editors and effects artists during post-production. Some of these moments were deleted from the film entirely, while other footage gives us scenes in their rough state before the addition of special-effects and sound. The chief points of interest are the alternate opening narration, the spaceship landing, a wholly cut sequence of Robby speeding Adams and his men across the desert in the "atomic car" toward their first encounter with Morbius and the dialogue concerning Altaira`s "maiden purity".

* Lost footage - Features test footage of special-effects sequences, such as planets and starfields, "DC Stations", the C-57D model over Altair 4, alternate takes of the spaceship landing and the Monster`s "footprints", matte paintings of the Krell Machine and footage incorporated into the Monster blaster battle.

* Excerpt from MGM Parade S01E27 & S01E28 (1956) - Walter Pidgeon addresses us in MGM Parade. While hosting a TV adaptation of "Captains Courageous", he breaks to promote his new MGM feature, Forbidden Planet. Robby joins him in one of them, and the spot gives Robby a weird malevolent twist that must have come from some PR hack`s idea of what a giant robot was supposed to act like.

* The Thin Man S01E23 - "Robot Client" (28.02.1958) - Robby, with various modifications, made appearances on TV shows for years afterward, most famously on The Twilight Zone. Here we find him framed for murder in "Robot Client", a 1958 episode of "The Thin Man" TV series starring Peter Lawford and Phyllis Kirk as Nick and Nora Charles.

* "Amazing! Exploring the far reaches of Forbidden Planet (2006)" - In addition to reuniting the surviving cast members of the '56 classic (including Leslie Nielsen, Anne Francis, Richard Anderson, Warren Stevens, and Earl Holliman), "Amazing! Exploring the far reaches of Forbidden Planet" is an appreciative tribute to Forbidden Planet with some of Hollywood's foremost sci-fi fans including special effects masters Dennis Muren and Phil Tippett, SF movie expert Bill Warren and others.

* "Robby the Robot: Engineering a sci-fi icon (2006)" - A featurette about the robot's design, creation and pop-cultural history, featuring original "Robby" designer Robert Kinoshita, Bill Malone (current owner of the original Robby), and Fred "The Robot Man" Barton, a lifelong robot fanatic who now sells fully authorized, full-scale replicas of Robby for sci-fi fans with deep pockets.

* "Watch the Skies!: Science fiction, the 1950s and us (2005)" - A documentary from Turner Classic Movies, written and directed by Time magazine critic Richard Schickel. It's a thoroughly comprehensive survey of '50s sci-fi and its influence on the next generation of film directors, including engaging interviews with George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, Ridley Scott and James Cameron.

Also included a set of extra materials:

* Introduction by George Stevens Jr

* "Memories of Giant" (1998) - George Stevens Jr, Rock Hudson, Carroll Baker, Jane Withers and Earl Holliman are interviewed. The focus is less a making of film and more just letting various stars from the movie recall the experience - particularly how much they enjoyed the camaraderie during and after shooting. Much of this is because the film was made in "the middle of nowhere" in Texas (Marfa, Texas to be exact) - and at nights there wasn't much to do but spend their time together. We are also very lucky that the director (George Stevens) and Rock Hudson had previously been filmed talking about this, as they had died long before the special feature was made. Also, while they don't say why, apparently Elizabeth Taylor did not wish to be interviewed for the film and James Dean died way back in 1955. Well worth seeing - especially since all the nice stuff they said about each other was not part of the studio publicity department (as it's always obviously staged) and they gave some interesting anecdotes (such as how shy Dean was).

* "On location in Marfa, Texas" - filming locations discussed by Gig Young

* "Giant stars are off to Texas" - pre-production film clip

* "A visit with Dimitri Tiomkin" - Gig Young and movie's music composer Dimitri Tiomkin featurette

* "Return to giant" (2003) - Don Henley (Narrator), Don Graham (University of Texas), Earl Holliman, Bryan Woolley (Dallas Morning News), Carroll Baker, George Stevens, Jr., Dennis Hopper, Fran Bennett and Monte Hale are all featured in new or archival interviews about the making of Giant. Not only do we get the basic Hollywood story of the cast coming together, the script coming together and the director putting it all together but what's most fascinating is getting the story from the locals who had this major motion picture coming to their town. The most interesting interviews come from locals who recall the making of the movie as they saw it. It's made very clear that Stevens enjoyed the locals coming by to watch the filming and apparently he would even invite them into the local theater where he would watch the dailies. One example is Clay Evans whose property was used for the set of the house. We also hear from the Mayor of Marfa, Texas who discusses the state of the city and what it meant for them to have Hollywood come there. We're taken to where much of the film was shot and there were several places where the old sets are still standing even though they're in very bad shape today. As with any document on Giant, there's also talk of the people getting the news that James Dean had been killed. There's also some talk about how most Texans hated the book but they all fell in love with the movie.

* "George Stevens - A filmmaker's journey (1984) - Biography of director George Stevens by his son. It includes clips from many of his films with commentary by the actors and by directors such as Frank Capra, John Huston and Alan Pakula, among others. Also included are Stevens's war "home movies," found only after his death. Assigned by Eisenhower to film the war in Europe, Stevens used the opportunity to produce, at the same time, the only color footage ever shot in World War II. There is breathtaking film of D-Day and its aftermath; the triumphal march through Paris of the Allied liberators; and the unspeakable horrors of Dachau. This is what Goya might have done with a movie camera. On a more mundane level is a segment on Cecil B. DeMille's 1950 underhanded attempt to oust Joseph L. Mankiewicz, then president, from the Directors' Guild, which Stevens was instrumental in blocking.

* Set of trailers - 1956, 1963, 1970 and book trailer

Description: Sherlock Holmes is approached by an insurance company representative when two members of a very exclusive club die in mysterious circumstances. In a manor house in a remote part of Scotland, the only 7 members of the Good Comrades club meet for dinner but during the meal, Ralph King receives an envelope addressed to him and he died the following night. Soon after, a second message is received for Stanley Rayburn, a once distinguished actor and he too soon died in mysterious circumstances. The envelopes they receive contain only orange pips, one for each remaining member of the club. They all suspect one another and as the murders continue, the number of suspects is reduced. For Sherlock Holmes however, the case is not so simple and he looks to another solution to the crime.
