Brad Bird, (‘Ratatouille’, ‘UP’, ‘The Incredibles’) really wants to send ‘The Iron Giant’ to Blu-Ray, but he needs your help! In a recent interview with the good folks over at Den of Geek, Bird talked about the planned Blu-ray release:

“I’ve been talking with Warner Bros for basically the past ten years, and all sorts of options have been discussed.

There’s been talk of doing about a minute and a half, two minutes, of new animation for it, that were some sequences that we designed in the original, that I think were cool. There’s been talk of doing 3D. There’s been talk of doing a limited digital release, kind of like ‘Blade Runner’ had. And all of them kind of blossom and fade. Now, we’re having more serious discussions about doing something in anticipation of the Blu-ray.

But I don’t want the Blu-ray to simply be a higher resolution version of our DVD. I would love to get into some of the stuff, now we all have some perspective, that went into the making of it. There’s a lot of good stories there that haven’t been told about the struggles that we went through. We’ll see what happens, but we are in discussions about it right now”.

So far, Warner Brothers Home Entertainment seems to only want a bare bones disc, Brad, on the other hand, wants more. Anyone who has seen the film can understand his desire to make this happen. He suggests a Twitter campaign to @WBHomeEnt showing them just how badly we all want brilliantly executed tribute to our lovable hunk of metal.

Obviously, we don’t wish to spam the hell out of Warner Bros, but if you want more out of ‘The Iron Giant’ Blu-ray, simply let them know in your own kind words that you want this to happen. They may consider a sort of crowd funding deal, but they need to know that the potential is there.

So what say you, fellow readers?  Are you willing to send a tweet to help out Brad Bird?
