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.

SGU Season 1.5 - Blu-ray (Large)

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.

(Thanks to Madwelshboy, Rob and Ben for the tip!)

  • I think I’ll just wait for the full season. or until both halves are really cheap.

    I’ve never been a big fan of these half season releases i got burned with BSG season 2.0 and 2.5 because i didn’t read the box correctly

  • While the studio listening to fans may have been a factor, I suspect that the poor sales of the previous release played a substantial role in the studio’s decision to cut the blu-ray asking price nearly in half.

  • @mattcci,
    The poor sales of 1.0 is mainly due to fans holding out until the complete season is released in 2011.

    The whole season will have everything that 1.0 and 1.5 has and will be a more cost effective purchase.

    I’m happy to hold out for the complete season, mainly because 1.0 and 1.5 are not going to be released like they do in the US. We have no choice as UK fans, but to wait for the complete season.

    Plus, if MGM follows the recent trend of other shows getting released on Blu-ray, then the complete season boxset will be thinner than having to single amaray cases next to each other. Thinner season boxsets means more shelp space, lol.

  • I’ve already got the first part so I’m so excited to get the second half, but it’d be great if they’d just release a full season at a time :)

  • This series is already a mile ahead of Atlantis. Hopefully it can continue down the road it’s on and move closer to familiar galaxies as it does. I don’t think I can enjoy the show if Destiny doesn’t return home before the end of the series. Nice price for the Blu-ray set, definitely picking this up.

  • Ordering 1.0 and 1.5 on Amazon it STILL comes to $60 for the Blu-ray entire season (20 episodes).

    I ordered 24: Season 7 for $43 dollars for 24 episodes.

    Hardly a deal from MGM…

  • I think the reason that 1.0 did not sell very well is that it was not very good.

  • Already have (and love) the 1.0 edition so I’ll picking this up as well. Nice to see some of the supporting cast getting some interview time. Will probably get it on blu-ray as I have the first half on blu-ray. Good to see they dropped the price down though.
