*UPDATED!* April Fool's for Sweeney Todd
**UPDATE: The disc art has been released!**
The boys and girls over at DVD Active got word today that Paramount has officially announced the DVD street date for Sweeney Todd (review), Tim Burton’s all-singing grand guignol epic.
The disc will hit shelves on April 1st, 2008 (not a joke), with both single- and double-disc editions being available. The only feature on the single will be a featurette called “Burton + Depp + Carter = Todd”. The double disc, however, will come with a lot more including:
“Sweeney Todd is Alive: The Real History of the Demon Barber” featurette
“Musical Mayhem: Sondheim's Sweeney Todd” featurette
“Sweeney's London” featurette
“The Making of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” featurette
“Grand Guignol: A Theatrical Tradition” featurette
“Designs for a Demon Barber” featurette
“A Bloody Business” featurette
“The Razor's Refrain” featurette
Moviefone “Unscripted with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp” feature
