Official LOTR DVD news

03.27.2002

Yesterday in sunny Los Angeles, the folks from New Line Cinema announced all the details surrounding the LORD OF THE RINGS: FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING DVD or should I say DVDs - plural.  That's right, not one, not two or three but FOUR separate DVDs will be released in 2002.  Here are the details:

Two-disc set released on August 6th (two separate versions of this set will be released - one in widescreen the other in pan and scan

DISC ONE
- Full length feature film in Dolby Digital and Dolby 2.0 Surround

DISC TWO
- 3 Documentaries on the making of LOTR titled "Welcome to Middle-Earth," "The Quest for the Ring," and "A Passage to Middle-Earth."
- 15 featurettes taken from www.lordoftherings.net that includes interviews with the cast and crew
- 10-minute preview of footage from THE TWO TOWERS
- A look at the upcoming TWO TOWERS video game
- Enya's music video for "May It Be"
- Behind-the-scenes look at the making of the DVD
- Trailers and TV spots
- DVD-ROM features

Four-disc set released on November 12th
Full specs for this set were not released but it will include a director's cut by Peter Jackson with over 30-minutes of new footage and a new R-rating.  The first two discs of the four will contain the film and 3 audio commentaries.  The additional material for the following two discs hasn't been completed and therefore wasn't announced.

Four-disc Gift Set released on November 12th
This will feature all four discs from the above version but will include two statuettes by sculptor Sideshow Weta, an additional National Geographic DVD on the film and collectible trading cards from the movie.

Whew!  Start saving up that cash kiddies.   It looks like the LOTR fans (or their parents) are going to be filing for bankruptcy by the end of this year.  And if the rumors of a 5th super-ultra-box-set are true then we're really going to be in trouble!
