UPDATE: TVShowsOnDVD reports that the suggested price for the Season Five DVD set will be $49.95 U.S. ($69.98 Canadian), not $69.98 U.S. as previously reported. They’ve also published the titles of four bonus featurettes. The story below has been updated!
The 5-disc set will include all 20 episodes from the last year of the show, plus all the top-notch bonus featurettes and audio commentaries that Stargate fans have come to expect. Among those are deleted scenes, according to the site. But don’t hold out for another blooper reel this year; executive producer Joseph Mallozzi recently told fans that the Season Five set won’t have one.
Among the featurettes is “Tricks of the Trade: Submerging the Stargate,” “Dr. Jackson Comes to Atlantis,” “Stargate Atlantis Goes to Vegas,” and “Inside the Stargate Costume Department.”
The set will come with a suggested retail price of $49.98 U.S. ($69.98 CAN), according to the site.
Meanwhile, MGM and FOX are also prepping Atlantis‘s first (and hopefully not last!) Blu-ray high definition release. The Fans’ Choice set will be out some time this summer. The studio is currently hosting a contest allowing fans to design and vote on the cover art — so head over to SGAFansChoice.com and get busy!
Head over to TVShowsOnDVD.com for the original report, and stay tuned to GateWorld for more on these and other 2009 DVD releases as info becomes available! We’re also still waiting for news on the special edition re-release of SG-1‘s “Children of the Gods” (story), plus a complete series boxed set for Stargate Atlantis.
