The Giant's Dream Doc

Warner Bros is going all-out with the release of the Signature Edition of The Iron Giant on Blu-ray this fall. One of the Special Features included is this documentary - called The Giant's Dream, a comprehensive look at the Making of Brad Bird's animated classic The Iron Giant, which first hit theaters in 1999. This is directed by Anthony Giacchino, brother of composer Michael Giacchino, who has been making docs for years. It seems like much more than some 20 minute extra, diving deep into the production and process of creating this beloved animated film. They have tons of behind-the-scenes footage of Brad Bird riling up everyone trying to pull off something unique. But it ends on such an ominous note - "what could go wrong?"

Here's the first teaser trailer for Anthony Giacchino's doc The Giant's Dream, on Vimeo (via SlashFilm):

The Giant's Dream - An all new documentary about the dramatic story behind the making one of the world's greatest animated films, The Iron Giant. This documentary will be included in the Special Features on the Blu-ray release of The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, on shelves this September. The Giant's Dream is directed by Anthony Giacchino, brother of composer Michael Giacchino and director of the Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol behind the scenes documentary. Anthony's first feature-length documentary was called The Camden 28 (2007), and it was nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award. For those who can't wait to see this doc and learn more about Brad Bird's The Iron Giant, be sure to pre-order the Blu-ray.

its sad Warners didn't put as much effort into promoting the film when it was originally released.

The Iron Giant is one of the most criminally underrated "kids" movies ever conceived. It STILL holds up, and I watch it with my daughter every time it's on. So much heart...

I still remember seeing the trailer as a kid, and thinking, "What is this? I want to see this!"

looks great, looking forward to watching it. still undoubtedly one of the best (and one of the most overlooked on release) animations ever made. a beautiful combo of hand-drawn and digital, a story with a huge heart, uplifting for adults yet not patronising for kids. it's all just so well done, and so *not* hyperactive Disney, as Bird says in the video. endlessly rewatchable.

It's a wonderful movie! <3 I bought it on DVD a long time ago.

Looks like a good time. So many people go wrong when they decide to box themselves into the genre of their film. Just making a good movie should always be the first goal.
