The updated set will also include previously unseen photos and additional liner notes.

"As 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 from early October to mid-November to achieve the first screenings, 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.

"We are delighted with the success of that album and very pleased that we can now add 22 more tracks so that audiences can now enjoy at home a full representation of the film's powerful and emotional version of this great score."

The original motion picture soundtrack shot straight to the top of the charts and has been certified platinum since its release six weeks ago, marking the first number one soundtrack since Evita in 1997.
