On 25th February 2019, Universal Pictures UK will release the 25th Anniversary Edition of Schindler’s List.

The Oscar-winning epic directed by Steven Spielberg, is considered to be one of the most historically significant films of our time. It will be available on 4K Ultra HD for the first time ever along with Blu-ray and DVD editions.

The special anniversary edition includes an all-new bonus feature, Schindler’s List: 25 Years Later, where Director Steven Spielberg joins actors Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Embeth Davidtz and Caroline Goodall to reflect on the making of the film and its legacy.

The incredible true story follows the enigmatic Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust. It is the triumph of one man who made a difference and the drama of those who survived one of the darkest chapters in human history because of what he did. Meticulously restored from the original film negative in pristine high definition and supervised by Steven Spielberg, Schindler’s List is a powerful story whose lessons of courage and faith continue to inspire generations.

Schindler’s List picked up 12 Oscar nominations and won seven awards.
