The second half of Stargate Universe‘s debut season arrives on July 27! MGM and FOX Home Entertainment have officially announced the new set and all its contents, and you can preorder it right now on Amazon.com on Blu-ray or DVD.
The 3-disc set features all 10 episodes from the current spring run, from “Space” through “Incursion, Part 2.”
Fans will also find Stargate‘s usual plethora of bonus features, including:
- Cast and crew commentaries on all 10 episodes
- Fifteen Destiny SML featurettes, including: interviews with several lead and supporting cast members; video diaries; behind-the-scenes production vids examining stunts, production design, and more; a set tour; and more
- Kino Video Diaries, including the final eight webisodes from Season One
(See the press release on the next page for the full list of featurettes.) The Blu-ray high definition edition includes SGU: Survival Instinct, a new interactive game. Both editions include the same list of bonus featurettes.
Video is presented in 1.78:1 widescreen anamorphic format, with English 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio for the Blu-ray and 5.1 Dolby Digital for the DVD. Subtitles are in English, French, and Spanish.
SGU Season 1.5 can be yours for the suggested retail price of $29.98 DVD ($37.98 Canada) or $39.99 Blu-ray ($49.99 Canada). The studio really seems to have listened to fans who balked at the steep asking price for the first half of the season ($49.98 on DVD and a staggering $69.99 for Blu-ray), and packed a lot of value into this release at the right price.
Many retailers will further discount from the SRP, of course. As of press time, Amazon is currently taking pre-orders at 25% (Blu-ray) and 27% (DVD) off.
As we previously reported, for you hold-outs MGM and FOX are also planning a Complete First Season set with all 20 episodes (story). That will be available sometime in 2011, according to a blurb in the Official Stargate Magazine. But if you already have Season 1.0, the new release will also come with a special sleeve to combine SGU 1.0 and 1.5 into a single, complete set.
Order SGU Season 1.5 now at Amazon! You’ll lock in the current discount, and help to support GateWorld at the same time.
