Harryhausen Blu-ray Collection to Include 7th Voyage of Sinbad

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has formally announced the Ray Harryhausen Collection/Gift Set will be coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 7.

The big news is the studio for the first time confirms The 7th Voyage of Sinbad: 50th Anniversary Edition will be including in the set alongside 20 Million Miles to Earth: 50th Anniversary Edition, Earth vs. The Flying Saucers and It Came From Beneath The Sea.


Each film has been remastered and the viewer can toggle between the original black and white version and the all-new color version. Harryhausen adds, “I am thrilled these films are finally being seen in color. I had wanted to do them in color in the 1950s, but the budgets were not large enough to accommodate that luxury. Now, thanks to the marvelous advances made in the colorization process by San Diego’s Legend Films and others, audiences will be able to see the movies as I originally intended.”

All four films are expected to be presented in widescreen 1080p video and 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio. Extensive supplemental features for each are as follows.
