Watch: The Making of 'Boyhood' Over 12 Years in New Featurette

Unfortunately, Boyhood won't be available on Blu-Ray and DVD until January 6th, but if the film gets some love from the Golden Globes or Oscars, that will give you plenty of time to check out out before those ceremonies. In the meantime, for those who have seen Richard Linklater's film (or even if you haven't, this won't spoil anything), check out this 10-minute featurette looking at the making of this one-of-a-kind, coming-of-age tale. The featurette has footage that spans the 12 years it took to make this film a reality. Again, seeing Ellar Coltrane grow up is mind-blowing, and seeing the time pass so quickly is wild. Watch!

Here's the 10-minute featurette on the making of Richard Linklater's Boyhood from Hulu:

Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his older sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), learn to face the realities of growing up, while their divorced parents cope with the ongoing challenges of parenting in an ever-evolving landscape. Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Before Sunrise, Bernie) directs the film, using the same actors, including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the Mason's parents, over 11 years of production. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and the film hits Blu-Ray & DVD next year on January 6th.

A once in a generation film. You won't see anything else like it again.
