STAR TREK, anche l'Italia festeggia i 50 anni della serie con nuove uscite in home video. Tra le novità la SERIE ANIMATA in Blu-Ray e il documentario THE RODDENBERRY VAULT

In occasione dei 50esimo anniversario della messa in onda della prima puntata della serie TV “classica” di Star Trek, avvenuta l’8 settembre 1966 sull’emittente americana NBC, la Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Italia ha messo in commercio sul nostro territorio le edizioni speciali delle serie TV e dei film che hanno fatto la storia della saga.

Prodotto must-have per i fan di Star Trek è, innanzitutto, il mega-cofanetto Blu-Ray da collezione, disponibile dal 28 Settembre in esclusiva su Amazon, Dvd-Store.it e Media World, che contiene al suo interno: sei cartoline; l’esclusiva spilletta del 50° anniversario della serie; tutti i film di Star Trek in edizione Blu-Ray e un Bonus Disc con un documentario inedito; tutti gli episodi della Serie Classica e tutti i 22 episodi serie animata.


Per i nostalgici della Serie Classica, sono già disponibili, sia in DVD che in Blu-Ray, i cofanetti completi. Tutte le 3 stagioni sono state rimasterizzate e gli effetti visivi sono stati ricreati, per un’esperienza visiva ancora più coinvolgente.


Il mito continua con Star Trek: The Next Generation, le cui sette stagioni sono ora disponibili in un cofanetto Blu-Ray in esclusiva su Amazon, Dvd-Store.it e Media World.


Il successo di Star Trek si è poi consolidato al cinema con ben 10 film, ora tutti disponibili negli speciali Steelbook Blu-Ray, sempre in esclusiva su Amazon, Dvd-Store.it e Media World.

Ma le sorprese non finiscono qui: i festeggiamenti per il 50esimo anniversario di Star Trek continueranno nei prossimi mesi con l’uscita in home video (DVD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D) dell’ultimo capitolo cinematografico della saga, Star Trek Beyond, con i cofanetti (in DVD e Blu-Ray) dedicati alla Serie Animata e con l’attesissimo cofanetto Blu-Ray Star Trek: The Roddenberry Vault, ricco di materiale inedito realizzato (e gelosamente custodito) da Gene Roddenberry, l’ideatore di Star Trek.


Quest'ultimo cofanetto Blu-Ray, che sarà disponibile negli States dal 13 dicembre (non è ancora stata divulgata la data di uscita italiana) conterrà 12 episodi della Serie Classica di particolare rilevanza, presentati in alta definizione (1080p), con tracce musicali separate, nuovi commenti e una grande quantità di materiale inedito direttamente dalla sala di montaggio originale.
Quattro documentari accompagneranno questa realizzazione, entrando nel dettaglio del processo creativo che ha portato Star Trek a essere ciò che tutti conosciamo oggi. A tutto questo si aggiungono nuove interviste ad attori, sceneggiatori e figure chiave della produzione della serie.

Di seguito il comunicato stampa in lingua originale diffuso dalla Paramount/CBS per il mercato statunitense.

STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES – THE RODDENBERRY VAULT ARRIVES DECEMBER 13 FROM CBS HOME ENTERTAINMENT AND PARAMOUNT HOME MEDIA DISTRIBUTION
Blu-ray™ Collection In Limited Edition Packaging To Include Twelve Classic Episodes, Three Exclusive Special Feature Documentaries Presenting Unseen Footage And New Interviews With Notable Star Trek Figures
 
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (September 1, 2016) – Fans can dive into the making of pop culture history when STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES – THE RODDENBERRY VAULT is released on Blu-ray December 13. In honor of the show’s 50th Anniversary, and just in time for holiday gift giving, the three-disc collector’s edition Blu-ray set from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution gives fans unprecedented access to never-before-seen footage from the production of Star Trek: The Original Series.
During the shooting of Star Trek, bits and pieces of episodic footage were left on the cutting room floor and later preserved in film canisters by The Roddenberry Estate. Recognizing the value of the footage, CBS painstakingly catalogued, transferred, analyzed, and pieced together these Vault materials, which include alternate takes, deleted scenes, omitted dialogue, outtakes, and original visual FX elements.
 
STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES – THE RODDENBERRY VAULT includes twelve classic episodes chosen for their relevance to the Vault materials, and presented in 1080p High Definition with both DTS 7.1 Master Audio as well as newly restored original Mono. Eleven of these episodes contain isolated music tracks. Newly recorded audio commentaries appear on three fan-favorite episodes.
Each of the set’s three discs features documentaries that weave together the previously unseen Vault materials with all-new interviews by key creative and production personnel and famous fans. The three new documentaries exploring the “making of” the celebrated series and its enduring legacy are:
 
Inside The Roddenberry Vault: Rod Roddenberry introduces viewers to the discovery of his father’s long-lost Star Trek film reels. With footage from each of the 12 episodes, this three-part special feature offers a guided exploration into the historical significance of the newly discovered material through new interviews with dozens of Star Trek alumni and historians
 
Star Trek: Revisiting A Classic: A look back at the origins of the iconic series, including glimpses of life on the set with new interviews featuring guest stars, directors and production personnel.
 
Strange New Worlds: Visualizing the Fantastic dives into the creation of spaceships, transporters, and the classic Star Trek visuals. The in-depth feature combines newly found original visual effects elements photography along with interviews with effects masters and Star Trek veterans such as Industrial Light & Magic founding member Richard Edlund, Doug Drexler, Dan Curry and Gary Hutzel.
 
Giving fans access to even more fragments of unseen footage and omitted dialogue from the groundbreaking series is a collection of Vault materials entitled Swept Up: Snippets from the Cutting Room Floor.
 
Star Trek figures interviewed for these exclusive documentaries include William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk); writers Dorothy “D.C.” Fontana, David Gerrold and John D.F. Black; director Ralph Senensky; casting director Joseph D’Agosta; visual effects artist Richard Edlund; and actors from the 12 featured episodes such as Clint Howard (“The Corbomite Maneuver”), BarBara Luna (“Mirror, Mirror”), Leslie Parrish (“Who Mourns for Adonais?”), Charlie Brill (“The Trouble with Tribbles”), Michael Forest (“Who Mourns for Adonais”), Bobby Clark (“Arena”) and Elinor Donahue (“Metamorphosis”). Plus, the collection features new interviews with an impressive array of some of Star Trek’s biggest fans including The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady, The Simpsons writer/producer David Mirkin, Family Guy writer/producer David A. Goodman, NASA’s Bobak Ferdowsi, Bill Nye (The Science Guy), and more..
STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES – THE RODDENBERRY VAULT will be initially available in limited edition deluxe packaging. The Blu-ray is Not Rated in the U.S. and rated G in Canada.
