To mark the 25th anniversary of the iconic film Schindler’s List, Universal Pictures will be releasing a remastered version of the movie in theaters on December 7.

“It is difficult to believe that it’s been 25 years since Schindler’s List first arrived in theaters,” said director Steven Spielberg in a statement on Wednesday. “The true stories of the magnitude and tragedy of the Holocaust are ones that must never be forgotten, and the film’s lessons about the critical importance of countering hatred continue to reverberate today. I am honored that audiences will be able to experience the journey once again on the big screen.”

The film will have its picture and sound digitally remastered in 4K and hit theaters for a limited engagement in the United States and Canada. Universal – which released a remastered trailer for the film on Wednesday – said the new version “provides a stunning experience on the big screen, to match the power of the film and its significant themes.” The film studio said the movie will also be re-released in some international territories in early 2019.

Ahead of the re-release, the film will also be screened for high school students and educators at free events around North America. The events are being coordinated by the USC Shoah Foundation, which Spielberg founded the year after completing Schindler’s List.

Ron Meyer, vice chairman of NBC Universal, said Wednesday that “We are proud to bring the remastered Schindler’s List, one of the most important movies of the 20th century, to a new generation of filmgoers. The lesson that one person – during one of the darkest chapters in humankind’s history – can make a difference is as relevant now as ever before.”

In April, Spielberg and much of the film’s cast took part in a 25th anniversary panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Festival. The director said then that winning two Academy Awards for the film “wasn’t really a celebration at all... I don’t feel this movie is a celebration. The subject matter and the impact the film had on all of us … took sort of the celebration out of that.”
