Def Leppard’s big reissue of Hysteria would be enough to celebrate the album’s 30th anniversary, but now fans can expect a new mini-documentary, too.

The trailer to Step Inside: Hysteria at 30 was just released and can be viewed below.  While no release date has been announced yet, we can’t imagine it not coming out around the same time as the Hysteria reissue on August 4.

Def Leppard is really pulling out all the stops for this reissue, too.  It’ll be released in five different formats (Single CD, 3 CD, 2 LP, limited edition orange vinyl 2 LP and Super Deluxe box set), and as for the latter format, they really are emphasizing the super.  The box set will include five CDs, two DVDs, four books and a tour poster.

For fans that haven’t pre-ordered the Hysteria reissue yet, each format is currently available for pre-order at UDiscoverMusic.com.
