The all-time box office champ is ready for another round.

James Cameron’s Avatar: Special Edition will hit Digital 3D and Imax 3D theaters Aug. 27 for a limited engagement, and includes eight minutes of additional footage.

“Audiences repeated told me they wanted more of Pandora, and wished they could have stayed there longer. So we’re making that possible,” Cameron said. “Whether you already love the movie, or you’ve never seen it, with this special edition you’ll be seeing it like never before.”

The additional footage includes new creatures and action scenes, Cameron said.

The news of the theatrical re-release comes amid speculation about a deluxe edition of the film for DVD and Blu-ray. The movie was released on disc in April with no bonus material, but producers indicated a new disc with extensive extras was being prepared for release by the end of the year, with a 3D home video version due within a year or two.

Avatar has grossed nearly $750 million domestically and more than $2.7 billion worldwide.
