It’s crazy to think that Schindler’s List was filmed all the way back in March of 1993, making this year the 20th Anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s famous and important film. This may not be a hot fact that most of us know off of the top of our heads, but luckily Universal Studios Home Entertainment is all over that anniversary date and will be bringing Schindler’s List to Blu-ray for the first time this month.
The Schindler’s List—20th Anniversary Blu-ray hits the market on March 5 and is a limited edition set that will also be available on DVD for those who are not particularly concerned about picture quality. Since the movie was filmed entirely in black and white the crispness of the picture was pretty stunning at the time of its release, but since then Spielberg has overseen the restoration of the flick from its original 35mm film negative into High Definition, so assumedly, the picture quality is even better.
Schindler’s List is based on a book by Thomas Keneally and follows the story of the real-life factory owner Oskar Schindler who saved the lives of over 1,000 Jewish prisoners during the Holocaust. Because the story is based on a true tale, a lot of the bonus features will be interviews and other segments with historical value. There isn’t too much in the way of extras with the set, but if you are planning to purchase, this seems to be a good release for people who don’t own the film or are looking to upgrade to HD picture. You can check out the full list of bonus features, below.

Reality TV fan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. Theme park junkie. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
