Netflix’s Lost in Space is the heartfelt reimagining of the classic show that we all need. We still have to wait for the second season to hit screens, but you can now take home the first wonderful entry on Blu-ray and DVD from June 4, 2019. To celebrate, we have an exclusive clip about the creation of the show’s breakout star: the sexy robot formally known as… Robot.
This behind the scenes featurette focuses on the intricate process of creating the Robot, who is the show’s incarnation of Will Robinson’s close friend and intergalactic caretaker. Their relationship is absolutely key to the story and the Robinson family‘s ultimate survival, but when the series hit Netflix last year fans were taken aback by the new Robot’s shapely form. The character quickly became a viral hit, and fans even queued up to have their picture taken with the heartthrob at SDCC.
Practical effects are a dying art and it’s super exciting to see the dedication and work that went into creating this iconic new representation of one of pop culture’s most famous robots. If you’re into this kind of cool BTS footage you’ll likely enjoy the home video release of Lost in Space which includes multiple featurettes, deleted scenes, and even the (Blu-Ray exclusive) colorized pilot of the original series.
