Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Forbidden Planet is the first release in the Sci-fi Destination SteelBook range. Each release includes a replica A3-sized theatrical poster.

Forbidden Planet is the granddaddy of tomorrow, a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Leslie Nielsen plays the commander who brings his space cruiser crew to Planet Altair-4, home to Dr Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), his daughter (Anne Francis), a dutiful robot named Robby…and to a mysterious terror. Featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all-electronic musical soundscape in film history, Forbidden Planet is in a movie orbit all its own.

Forbidden Review

An amazing steel book from Zavvi. The classic film is presented in a brilliant steel book with incredible artwork and makes a fine addition to the collection!

Forbidden planet

Should be better design for such a classic

Great special edition steel

Always loved this film was great to see a special edition steel book come out including lots of special features and an extra film the invisible boy included on the disc plus a very nice film poster of the film included. Nice one Zavvi

True classic

A true classic, ahead of it's time and always great to watch. Beautiful artwork on the steelbook does great justice to the film.

Forbidden Planet

I believe this film to be one of the best films ever made and I don't mean just in it's genre, I never get bored of watching it!!!.

Classic Nostalgia!

A classic sci fi film remaster and presented in a great steelbook case worth every penny! Great item and brilliant qaulity!

Forbidden planet

Total classic of a film for so many reasons (if you're a film or sci fi fan) but just a fantastic film to watch for all ages. The case & extras are beautiful & it's one of a series of 4 so far, I've ordered three of the available so far & very pleased, especially with the posters, hopefully a few more to come!

Top 100 MUST SEE

Great looking steelbook that comes with a beautiful mini poster of the original poster art gloriously featuring Robbie the robot. A classic Leslie Neilson sci-fi movie that shows how great he was as a serious actor. This movie showcases the yet unbeaten - most expensive prop in movie history - Robbie the robot whom young kids will enjoy seeing in this epic space story. Definitely a must see and this is a fantastic steelbook edition.

Classic Movie - Still Very Watchable Today

Forbidden Planet isn't quite to the production budgets of today's movies but then is was made in 1956! It has the wonderful Robbie the Robot and the terrifying invisible monsters only seen when they touch the electrified fence around the space ship. It was a movie ahead of its time.

Forbidden Planet Zavvi Exclusive Steelbook

Wow what a great piece of retro design by Zavvi, great to have a high definition version of the film and even better with the extras. All wrapped up in a beautiful collectors Steelbook.
