Trailer for The Iron Giant doc goes behind the scenes of Brad Bird's animated classic

Brad Bird’s 1999 animated flick The Iron Giant still stands as one of the greatest animated films of the modern era, and with the film getting an ambitious Blu-ray reissue, the studio has put together a full-on documentary looking into the story behind the project.

The footage is not only a fascinating window into the genesis of a pioneering animated film, but also a snapshot of a long-lost era and a peek at mega-director Brad Bird before he was directing blockbusters like Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Tomorrowland. The documentary was directed by Anthony Giacchino, and is one heck of a cool special feature, especially considering it’s only available bundled with the film’s pending rerelease. If there's any film that deserves it, it's Iron Giant.

The Giant’s Dream: The Making of The Iron Giant is bundled in the Signature Edition Blu-ray release of The Iron Giant hitting shelves Sept. 6.
