Though this DVD is not due out until sometime in October, LatinoReview scored two 'inserts' revealing full details of the two-disc set. Unfortunately those guys at Lucasfilms are on the ball as always and have asked LatinoReview to take them down, but we can say that they look great.

Of the extras on the 50-chapter disc set, the most notable is the feature-length audio commentary by George Lucas, Rick McCallum, sound designer Ben Burtt, ILM animation director Rob Coleman, and three ILM FX supervisors (Pablo Helman, John Knoll & Ben Snow). There's eight exclusive deleted scenes with introductions, whilst "From Puppets to Pixels: Digital Characters in Episode II" is a documentary film which includes various things such as ILM's efforts with Yoda. More behind the scenes stuff includes "Films are Not Released: They Escape" documentary on creating the film's sound, "State of the Art: The Previsualization of Episode II" shows storyboards and animatics of key action scenes in the film, and there's all twelve parts of the Web documentary. Finally (take a breath if you need it) comes the exclusive John Williams "Across the Stars" music video (which includes footage from the film and scoring sessions), posters, international adverts, four trailers, the "R2-D2: Beneath The Dome" mockumentary trailer, twelve TV spots, a never-before-scene production photo gallery, a breakdown montage of ILM's 2000 FX shots within the movie, and exclusive DVD-ROM content. Thanks to Dark Horizons for the info.
