It's called milking a cash cow.

For Fox, Avatar (worldwide total gross $2.8 billion) is the gift that keeps on giving. (Even if the recent theatrical re-release with extra footage did not pull many viewers--most had already seen the original multiple times.) Now, in time for the holidays, on November 15 and 16 the second Avatar DVD release starts rolling out all over the world (the first "bare-bones" edition went out on April 22, Earth Day).

This time, it's the Blu-Ray and DVD "Extended Collector's Edition," a three-disc set with "over eight hours of never-before-seen material and in-depth exploration into the world of Pandora!" That includes 45 minutes of previously cut scenes. James Cameron will offer a master class on the making of Avatar, he says:

"I told our team --- let's do the ultimate box set of Avatar, with everything in it the fans could possibly want. There's an extended length cut that's sixteen minutes longer, plus documentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, artwork and over 45 minutes of deleted scenes. Everything worth putting into a special edition is in this set."

There's still one more Avatar DVD to come in the next year or two, assuming there's a substantial 3-D digital market by then: the one that's in 3-D.
