"Audiences can expect new stories and new footage that they've never seen before in a blend of director John Avildsen's home movies, rehearsal footage, and behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the ultimate underdog film," Johnson revealed.

Titled "40 Years of Rocky: The Birth of a Classic," you'll be able to catch the exciting, behind-the-scenes project on iTunes/AppleTV and Amazon upon its release.

Well, folks, there you have it!
