Ahead of any official announcement, we have learned that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment plans to release Ghosts of the Abyss, the James Cameron documentary on the RMS Titanic, on Disney Blu-ray 3D on April 17, just a couple of days after the centennial marking of the ship’s fate.
Originally shot exclusively for IMAX 3D, the film has previously been released on DVD in 2D format, making this the first time the film will be available for 3D viewing in the home.
In Ghosts of the Abyss – narrated by actor Bill Paxton — James Cameron leads a team of the world’s foremost historical and marine experts back to the site of his greatest inspiration — the legendary wreck of the RMS Titanic.
During the voyage, you will explore inside the entire ship, deck by deck, room by room, encountering mysteries that have remained hidden for almost a century. Revolutionary underwater robots were designed and built solely for the purpose of allowing the explorers to peer deep into the remains of the once-great ship and bring those surreal and haunting images back to the surface world.
There is no word on any bonus features, but the DVD edition came equipped with unseen footage, revealing interviews and more. We will update as more information becomes available to us.
