Indican Has Blu ‘Wonder’11 May, 2009 By: Billy Gil
Indican Pictures will release its first Blu-ray Disc in September with The Wonder of It All, a documentary on the first astronauts to walk on the moon. The film will be released on DVD as well.
The Wonder of It All arrives theatrically in July, which marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and the first time a human being walked on the moon. It features such Apollo crewmembers as Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr., Alan Bean, Michael Collins, Eugene Cernan, Charlie Duke, Edgar Mitchell, Harrison Schmitt and John Young.
Special screenings will be held at Kennedy Space Center, The Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center and Cape Canaveral as well as for Congress and former President George H.W. Bush. Some of the moonwalkers will appear at the screenings, as well as on shows such as “Oprah,” “Ellen” and “Larry King Live” to promote the release.
Additionally, Indican has entered into a deal with the Make a Wish Foundation for eight children to meet the surviving crew and tour Cape Canaveral and a new space shuttle, launching in December.
