Penny Marshall's classic 1988 comedy will be getting a 25th anniversary release in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is working on 'Big: 25th Anniversary Edition' for Blu-ray on December 10.

Two-time Oscar Winner Tom Hanks received his first Best Actor Nomination for his disarming turn as a 12-year-old man-child in Penny Marshall's timeless, hilarious delight. Tired of being a kid, Josh Baskin wishes he was big. When he wakes up the next day, he's an adult! Now, Josh must hold down a job – and please a new boss (Robert Loggia). Tougher still, he must convince his best friend that he's still himself, and explain to a beautiful woman (Elizabeth Perkins) who falls for him, that he's not. Soon, Josh just wants to be a kid again, but can he?

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack will feature the theatrical and extended cuts of the film in 1080p video with a lossless soundtrack and supplements will include: Big Brainstorming Audio Documentary by Writers/Co-Producers Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg; Deleted Scenes, Including 5 with Intros by Director Penny Marshall; Big Beginnings; Chemistry of a Classic; The Work of Play; Hollywood Backstories: Big; Carnival Party Newswrap; plus collectible sound chip (Heart & Soul) O-ring packaging and one of three exclusive "Zoltar" fortune teller cards.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
