Baz Luhrmann’s big Australian cowboy epic has been recut into a Hulu miniseries.

The film, Australia, is a big melodramatic epic starring Nicole Kidman as an English aristocrat running a cattle station and Hugh Jackman as the dreamy drover who helps her. The new miniseries, Faraway Downs, will add over an hour of new footage and a whole new ending when it premieres on Hulu as a six-part mini-series on November 26.

“I got the idea and started to relook at the footage and realized I’ve shot enough to do it as episodic storytelling through a revisiting of the piece, not necessarily as a better film than Australia, but a different variation on the themes,” Luhrmann told The Wrap.
