“The Sound of Music,” which earned five Academy awards in its 1965 debut, is returning to the bigscreen to celebrate its half century legacy.
Twentieth Century Fox has a yearlong global campaign in place for the film’s golden anniversary, including a home entertainment release beginning March 10.
A restored version of the film will also be shown in more than 500 theaters across the U.S. on April 19 and 22.
In addition to the restored film, the five-disc collector’s edition set has 13 hours of additional content, including a new documentary, “The Sound of a City: Julie Andrews Returns to Salzburg” on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital HD.
Four new books and a themed Princess Cruise will also help celebrate the classic’s anniversary.
