When The Iron Giant arrived in theaters in 1999, it was hailed as an “instant classic” by Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal, and the world soon learned that another “giant” had arrived as well: filmmaker Brad Bird, who made his stunning directorial debut with this film and has gone on to win two Oscars, as well as worldwide acclaim for his work on both animated and live-action features.
Winner of 9 Annie Awards, remastered and enhanced with two all-new scenes, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition is the tale of an unlikely friendship between an alien robot from outer space (voiced by Vin Diesel) and a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli Marienthal), his bedraggled mom (voiced by Jennifer Aniston), a paranoid government agent (voiced by Christopher McDonald), and a sympathetic beatnik (voiced by Harry Connick, Jr.) all conspire to turn Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant into a gigantic, out-of-this-world adventure.
Iron Giant, The: Signature Edition (DVD)
Imagine you confront your enemy--a giant, scary robot from outer space--and he becomes your best pal. A young boy befriends a monster in the heartwarming animated feature The Iron Giant. October, 1957. Nine-year-old Hogarth Hughes (Eli Marienthal) lives in Rockwell, Maine, a seemingly idyllic town. Hearing stories of a UFO that crashed into the sea, Hogarth, always on the lookout for mutant aliens, finds a huge, metal-eating robot (Vin Diesel) with an insatiable curiosity and equally insatiable appetite. But the extraterrestrial's presence unleashes a wave of Cold War paranoia that threatens to engulf Rockwell unless Hogarth and his 50-foot friend can stop it. Acclaimed animation director and writer Brad Bird brings his creative talents to the big screen in this unique tale of two heroes. In times like these, you really find out what your friends are made of ... sometimes it's metal, if your best buddy's The Iron Giant.

This new version has some extra animated scenes that have been inserted since the original release. The new scenes add about 2 minutes to the movie. It makes a already animated classic even better.
Also included is a documentary on the making for the Iron Giant. This documentary was first shown at the San Diego Comic-Con (where I saw it). It is a welcome edition to the loads of extras available on this signature addition.
This is a highly recommended movie for young and old.
I recommend you purchase this BLU-Ray set. For more on the Iron Giant, read about it on Wikipedia:
You are who you choose to be. I chose to love this movie forever. Must buy for any family.
I'm glad they included the original theatrical cut along with the signature addition. I think I actually enjoyed the theatrical cut more.
