The new packaging promises additional production notes and never-before-seen photos from the film, which was directed by Tom Hooper. A single-disc highlights album was released in December 2012.

Individuals who purchased the highlights version are also able to complete their collection by purchasing the additional deluxe tracks independently.

"Post-production on the Les Misérables film was extremely tight, with recording of the orchestra, final edit and sound mix having to be completed in only a few weeks. There was only enough time to remix a limited number of tracks so that at least a highlights album could be released for the fans before Christmas," producer Cameron Mackintosh said in a statement.

The cast, including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Aaron Tveit, recorded all of their singing live during filming, listening to piano accompaniment through a hidden earpiece. A 70-piece orchestra later gathered in London to record the full orchestrations featured in the film and on the soundtrack. The movie also included the new song "Suddenly" for Jean Valjean (Jackman) to sing. 

The film stars Jackman as Valjean; Crowe as Javert; Hathaway as Fantine; Tveit as Enjolras; Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier; Amanda Seyfried as Cosette; Eddie Redmayne as Marius; Samantha Barks as Eponine; George Blagden as student Grantaire; Sacha Baron Cohen as Thenardier; and Daniel Huttlestone as child-hero Gavroche.
