Melcher Media announced the upcoming release of the new iPad app “Monty Python: The Holy Book of Days” which will be debuting with the Blu-ray™ release of Monty Python and the Holy Grail from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on March 6th. The app – created in conjunction with Monty Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin – recreates the 28 days of location shooting of the comedy film.

The interactive experience contains never-before-seen material including outtakes, rehearsals, raw audio recordings, songs, sound effects, scripts, and film stills.

“Every page of ‘Monty Python: The Holy Book of Days’ is packed with Python history, from Michael Palin’s day-by-day diary of the filming, to Terry Gilliam’s storyboards, to the original continuity sheets covering every shot, to 360° views of actual props and costumes from the movie.
