The official word: One of the most successful films of 2011, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, will be released as a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD and a Special Edition Blu-ray on Saturday, February 11, 2012. This weekend street date allows retailers to host Friday night pre-release parties for eager fans willing to count down to midnight to purchase their copies. Participating stores will be listed at www.breakingdawn-themovie.com.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is being released more than a month earlier than previous Twilight Saga DVDs to give fans a Valentine’s Day with Edward and Jacob. “We thought the fans would love to spend Valentine’s Day watching Bella & Edward’s wedding and honeymoon. It’s really the most romantic of all the Saga films,” said T.J. Moffett, Summit’s EVP of Home Entertainment Marketing. . . .
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Two-Disc Special Edition DVD has a suggested retail price of $30.49, while the Single Disc Blu-ray is set at $33.99. Both editions are packed with bonus features that are sure to please even the most-hard core fans, including two different fast forward features to your favorite Edward and Jacob scenes, Bella and Edward’s Wedding Video, audio commentary with director Bill Condon, and a mesmerizing 6-part “Making Of” documentary that takes you behind the scenes of the most talked about film of 2011.
