'Xanadu' Gets Rereleased18 Apr, 2008 By: Billy Gil
Before there was Miley Cyrus, there was Olivia Newton-John. Her equally beloved and reviled 1980 musical Xanadu is coming to DVD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment June 24 in a Magical Musical Edition ($19.98), including a complete soundtrack CD, with music from Newton-John, the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), Cliff Richard and The Tubes. The film, a remake of the 1947 Rita Hayworth film Down to Earth, tells of a muse who inspires a man to build a fantastical disco roller rink. The DVD has the new special feature “Going Back to Xanadu,” plus digitally remastered video and a new digital 5.1 audio track.
