The Godfather Part III was released on December 25, 1990 and was generally regarded as a disappointment compared to its predecessors, but now Francis Ford Coppola has completed a new version that's ready for release: the one that he and writer, Mario Puzo, originally envisioned.


The Godfather trilogy is one of the most renowned film series of all time. It consists of three films directed by Francis Ford Coppola and written by Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola; it is inspired by Puzo's novel of the same name. The series follows the Italian American mafia family, the Corleone family, focusing on Vito Corleone, one of the biggest names in organized crime, and his youngest son Michael Corleone. Paramount is releasing a newly re-edited, remastered version of the third installment of the trilogy, The Godfather Part III. It has been retitled The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone and the trailer just came out.

Mario Puzo's The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone has a new beginning and ending, with some rearranging of shots, scenes, and music cues. In a statement, Coppola said:

Mario Puzo's The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone is an acknowledgment of Mario's and my preferred title and our original intentions for what became The Godfather: Part III.

The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone will be in select theaters on December 4th, just in time of the original release's 30th anniversary. It will be available on Blu-Ray and Digital on December 8th.
