There are few childhood classics more masterful than Brad Bird’s “The Iron Giant,” and few movie friendships as beautiful as that between nine-year-old Hogarth and a metal-eating iron robot that crash lands from outer space.
Currently celebrating its 16th anniversary this year, the 1999 family adventure film is getting remastered for the first time in what is being called “The Iron Giant: Signature Edition.” The special re-release will also include two new scenes originally cut from the theatrical release. The voice cast includes Eli Marienthal, Christopher McDonald, Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick, Jr. and Vin Diesel.
