LAND OF THE GIANTS Complete Series - Limited Edition

Irwin Allen's Oversized Masterpiece Comes To DVD July 24 In A Nine Disc Collection From Fox Home Entertainment

CENTURY CITY, Calif. - From the creative mind of science-fiction and television legend Irwin Allen ("Lost In Space," "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea") comes one of the most anticipated DVD releases of the year when LAND OF THE GIANTS Complete Series - Limited Edition conquers its way onto a nine-disc set July 24, 2007 from Fox Home Entertainment. The final piece of the Allen library to be released on DVD, LAND OF THE GIANTS gained a cult following in the late 1960s as it chronicled the adventures of The Spindrift, a commercial spaceship, and its passengers. On a sub-orbital flight from New York to London, the ship crash-lands on a remote planet similar to Earth, where the inhabitants and plant life are twelve times larger than the Spindrift's passengers. The heroes on board must do all they can to fight the totalitarian government that rules the planet and ultimately find a way to return home. Known for its outstanding special effects and overall popularity among Irwin fans, the nine-disc LAND OF THE GIANTS DVD collection features all 51 classic episodes that aired from 1968-1970, the unaired pilot, as well as bonus interviews with stars Gary Conway, Don Marshall, Stefan Arngrim, Don Matheson, Deanna Lund and producer Irwin Allen, a still gallery featuring merchandise from the show, publicity photos, episodic photos, a Deanna Lund gallery and the original parody from MAD Magazine. The collectible DVD set also includes a full- color booklet with cast interviews and photos, a collectible Spindrift keychain, iron-on crew patch, reproduction of the first comic book, and trading cards. All of this is packaged is a collectible wooden cage themed directly from the show. The LAND OF THE GIANTS Complete Series - Limited Edition will be available for the suggested retail price of $199.98 U.S./$349.98 Canada.

The Spindrift, a commercial spaceship, became lost when it passed through a strange cloud in the ship's orbit around Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's passengers. The crew battles the planet's totalitarian government, tries to avoid capture and attempts to repair the Spindrift so they can get back home.
