Napoleon Dynamite gets the Special Edition treatment

Scheduled for release in May, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has just unveiled plans for Napoleon Dynamite – Like The Best Special Edition Ever!

“Napoleon Dynamite” is a new kind of hero, complete with a tight red ‘fro, sweet moon boots, and skills that can’t be topped. Napoleon spends his days drawing mythical beasts, duking it out with his brother, Kip, and avoiding his scheming Uncle Rico. When two new friends enter Napoleon’s life – shy Deb and mustachioed Pedro – the trio launches a campaign to elect Pedro for class president and make the student body’s wildest dreams come true. But if Pedro is to beat by stuck-up Summer, Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon…
