The Princess of Wales biopic starring two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts heads to Blu-ray next month. Pre-orders are now available here!
In an early announcement to retailers, Entertainment One is working on 'Diana' for Blu-ray on February 11.
Sixteen years after her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated 'Downfall') explores Diana's secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews, "Lost," 'The English Patient'), the human complications of which reveal the Princess's climactic days in a compelling new light. Hirschbiegel directed from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana's shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of a different life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and the disc will include exclusive bonus interviews with the cast and crew, as well as a 16-page DIANA Fashion Photo Booklet, which looks at how the filmmakers captured Diana's iconic fashion style.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
