The limited edition (just 1500 units) is mastered from the new 4K restoration of the original camera negative and will include exclusive audio commentary by film critics Barry Forshaw & Kim Newman, audio commentary by actor Gene Barry and actress Ann Robinson, audio commentary by Joe Dante, Bob Burns, and Bill Warren.

Additional features include "The Sky is Falling: Making The War of the Worlds documentary", the "H.G. Wells: The Father of Science Fiction" featurette, The Mercury Theatre on the Air Presents: The War of the Worlds Radio Broadcast from 1938, and the film’s theatrical trailer.
