Technical specs and special features have yet to be detailed.
@TheManInBlu -- Right on about J-Naz. Zeffirelli films are all amazing. Plus, you get Logan-5 as John the Baptist, Blackbeard as Judas Iscariot, Capt. VonTrapp as Herod, Bilbo Baggins as Zerah, and two of the wise men are Dr. Loomis and Darth Vader! Not to mention the Virgin Mary is Juliet herself! RAD!!
