Posted Mon Aug 30, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT by

It looks like a preview for the documentary 'A Message From Pandora' (which has since be pulled down) accidentally leaked news of the first double dip of James Cameron's 'Avatar.'

The preview revealed both the cover art, as well as the release date for 'Avatar: Collector's Edition, ' which will apparently be released on November 16.

'Avatar' was released as a bare-bones Blu-ray/DVD combo pack earlier this year on Earth Day (April 22).

Early word is that The Collector's Edition will be a three disc set and will include the extended cut of the film with sixteen additional minutes of footage, including a deleted opening sequence on Earth, plus another forty-five minutes of unfinished material, along with the documentary A Message from Pandora.

Suggested list price still hasn't been revealed yet.
