The four-disc set, which will be available for the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $45.99, will include a 60-minute documentary created by director Steven Spielberg, as well as inside looks at a scoring session with John Williams, editing with Michael Kahn, and sound room sessions with Gary Rydstrom.
