Is there any 'Making of' material available?


This has been one of my favorite movies for as long as I can remember, and being a big film buff, I would really like to know how it was made. However, I haven't been anble to find anything. The DVD is bare-bones, most of the websites I've gone to (after typing "Black Stallion Returns movie" into Google) are either websites where you can order the movie or where old reviews of it are stored. Even the movie's Wikipedia page doesn't really have much info on it. Does anybody know if there are any books, TV specials, documentaries, websites or anything that would be a good "Making of The Black Stallion Returns"? Thanks in advance.

The making of this and the original would be super to watch, but I dont believe either have any form of "making" dvd or litreture on it, would have been great to read how they managed quite a few scenes esspecially how they got the horse to react in such ways.

I wish! I would take anything. Still shots or deleted scenes. Anything. Like just show me the excess footage. Was this before the days someone would capture behind the scenes action? I guess.

There was behind the scenes footage being filmed for movies before “The Black Stallion Returns”, as the DVD releases of “Star Wars”, “Jaws” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” have shown. Also, this post on Blu-Ray.com seems to indicate that there is behind the scenes footage for both Black Stallion films (http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=199836). I hope that, when it comes time for “The Black Stallion Returns” to get released Blu-Ray, MGM/20th Century Fox will decide to release some of this material, though I kind of doubt it, considering that the Blu-Ray for the first film was pretty bare bones. Maybe they could let Shout Factory release it instead, then the film would get the kind of attention it deserves.
