Beginning in 2008, with the release of the award-winning Georges Méliès: First Wizard of Cinema: First Wizard of Cinema, Flicker Alley and Blackhawk Films have featured and celebrated the extraordinary work of Georges Méliès in various Blu-ray, DVD, and digital editions. Now, thanks to the extensive restoration efforts of Lobster Films, viewers will be equally delighted by the clarity, creativity and compositions of this new HD collection.

This set features music scores from seven talented musicians, and English narration tracks for select titles (noted below), along with a booklet that includes optional read-along narration to select shorts in the collection.

Over the past ten years, many Méliès elements have been newly rediscovered, and are presented here – many on Blu-ray disc for the first time – culled from the best archival materials and using the most recent restoration technologies available.

Lobster Films (based in Paris, birthplace of Méliès) scanned the best sources for each of these films, and performed an extensive digital restoration, stabilizing the images and regrading faded colors. Eric Lange supervised the entire project.

The nitrate hand-colored prints, and original camera negatives came from major archives and collectors around the world. We thank the EYE Film Institute, Library of Congress, Cinémathèque française, and Národní Filmovy Archiv for their help and their trust.
