The documentary Remembering Leonard Nimoy is being released this week on Blu-ray. TrekMovie has an exclusive look at one of the new special features for the release.
Remembering Leonard Nimoy now on Blu-ray
Remembering Leonard Nimoy is a loving and very personal tribute to the life and career of the late Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy. Produced and directed by his daughter Julie and son-in-law David Knight, the film reveals stories from his childhood growing up in Boston in the 1930s and 1940s, anecdotes from his early career in Hollywood, and a snapshot of Nimoy’s big break-out role as Spock. It also shows how he helped raise awareness for the lung disease that eventually took his life, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The documentary was released in 2017, but has not been available on Blu-ray until this week. The Blu-ray has extra bonus features that weren’t in the DVD, including “Leonard’s Family Slideshow” and “Leonard’s Trivia Quiz.”
TrekMovie has an exclusive first look at the “Family Slideshow” feature.
The Blu-ray is exclusively available at SHOPLLAP.COM and retails for $14.95. You can also still purchase the DVD version for $10.95.
Remembering Leonard Nimoy is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video and Hoopla Digital via your local library. The doc is available on Video on Demand via iTunes and is also still airing on some PBS stations.

I helped to fund this on IndieGoGo, and I saw it on PBS a few years ago. It’s kind of a strange documentary, since half of it is a memoir of Mr. Nimoy and half of it is general information about COPD, but it seemed more loving to me than the documentary Adam made, so I loved it.
Wow. I am looking so forward to seeing this; I was crying as I watched the trailer……
Nimoy spent the last period of his life telling everyone and anyone on twitter not to smoke or if they do, quit now!
I remember seeing a talk between Shatner and Nimoy, I think it was https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Mind_Meld:_Secrets_Behind_the_Voyage_of_a_Lifetime , where Nimoy expressed his admiration on Shatner quitting smoking when he did, and his recollections of Shatner shouting at the sky “I want a cigarette!”. And that praise of Shatner’s well deserved, as he’s clearly still going strong at 90. I don’t know when Shatner quit, but I got the impression it was much earlier than Nimoy quitting which he said happened around the 1980s.
Shatner quit during the third season of TOS, so back in 1968-9. I wish Mr. Nimoy had, too, so we’d have him still.
I never met the man ,but he had a profound impact on my life and I love the character he gave life to. His was the first celebrity death that really, really hit me.
I hope it gets on streaming soon

I wish I could post a bashful or sheepish emoji here. SMH, I should read more carefully before I post. I really only watched the two videos and didn’t read the article. Yes, bad teacher.
