Fox is preparing the family drama The Secret Life of Bees for DVD and Blu-ray release in 2009.
To escape her cruel, angry father – and discover the truth about her late mother’s past – 14-year old Lily Owens flees with her caregiver and friend Rosaleen to a South Carolina town where she’s taken in by the bee-keeping Boatwright sisters. Surrounded by the unexpected love, grace and spirituality she encounters there, Lily forms a bond with each of these uniquely gifted women and discovers that sometimes you must leave home in order to find it.
The DVD will carry the theatrical cut as well as an extended version of the film, eight deleted scenes, the world premiere, featurettes and two audio commentaries. The Blu-ray will carry all of the same features and the additional bee related featurette.
Both arrive on February 3rd. The DVD is set at $29.98 and the Blu-ray at $39.99.
