When “The Iron Giant” arrived in theaters, it was hailed as an “instant
classic” (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal). “Imagine E.T. as a
towering metal man, that’s the appeal of this enchanting animated
feature” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). And the world soon learned
another “giant” had arrived as well: filmmaker Brad Bird, who made his
stunning directorial debut with this film and has gone on to win two
Oscars, as well as worldwide acclaim for his work on both animated and
live-action features.

Winner of nine Annie Awards, “The Iron Giant” is the tale of an unlikely
friendship between a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli
Marienthal) and a giant robot, voiced by a then little-known actor named
Vin Diesel. The voice cast also included Jennifer Aniston and Harry
Connick Jr.

Directed by Brad Bird, “The Iron Giant” was produced by Allison Abbate
and Des McAnuff, adapted from poet Ted Hughes’ book, The Iron Man, with
the screen story by Bird and the screenplay written by Tim McCanlies and
Brad Bird. “The Iron Giant” was first released in the summer of 1999 by
Warner Bros.

Following the re-release in theaters, a high-definition version of “The
Iron Giant: Signature Edition” will be available to purchase from
digital retailers in the fall of 2015.
