Finally, for the first time, all three extended editions of The Lord Of The Rings come alive in high definition Blu-ray! See the epic trilogy the way it was meant to be seen with the complete re-mastered box set containing The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return Of The King!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy tells the story of Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), a hobbit who battles against the Dark Lord Sauron to save his world, Middle-earth, from the grip of evil. In the films, Frodo and his fellowship of friends and allies embark on a desperate journey to rid Middle-earth of the source of Sauron's greatest strength, the One Ring -- a ring that has the power to enslave the inhabitants of Middle-earth. The trilogy tells tales of extraordinary adventures across the treacherous landscape of Middle-earth and reveals how the power of friendship, love and courage can hold the forces of darkness at bay.

The Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring: In a time before history, in a place called Middle-earth, a dark and powerful lord has brought together the forces of evil to destroy its cultures and enslave all life caught in his path. Sauron's time has come and he needs only one small object - a Ring that has been lost for centuries - to snuff out the light of civilization and cover the world in darkness...

The Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers: The fellowship is now divided with Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli (John-Rhys Davies) helping to restore some order to the land of King Theodon (Bernard Hill), whose mind has been poisoned by the machinations of Grima Wormtongue (Brad Dourif). Wormtongue is a secret emissary of wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee), now ready to unleash his army of the night on Middle-Earth. Meanwhile, Frodo (Elijah Wood) is falling deeper under the dreaded influence of The Ring, as he journeys with Sam (Sean Astin) towards Mordor...

The Lord Of The Rings - The Return Of The King: It is time. For Frodo to overcome the wickedness of Gollum, the horrifying attack of the colossal arachnid Shelob and the soul-twisting allure of a ring that resists destruction. For Aragorn to take up the sword of his forebears and the crown of his birthright. For the mighty clash that wizard Gandalf calls "the great battle of our time." And for the inspired culmination of the films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's literary classic. For the third time, a Rings movie was a Best Picture Academy Award nominee and for the first time it claimed that prize (plus 10 more). The King deserves its crown.

  • Contains all 3 extended editions of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy
  • Each film is spread across two Blu-ray discs in order to present them in the highest possible picture quality.
  • Multi-disc elite packaging inside a premium rigid slipcase.
  • The collection includes more than 26 hours of additional content including behind-the-scenes documentaries created by filmmaker Costa Botes, who was given complete access to the set of each production.

 Not Happy!

I was so looking forward to this release but I am left very disappointed. What is not explained is that each film is split over 2 discs(6 of the 15) to allow all the extra commentaries + what they say will allow the best picture/audio quality. Whilst I applaude the extras(2 stars) I can't help thinking if they'd have ditched the 4 commentary tracks we would have the film on one disc & not something that reminds me of when DVD first started out & you had what was called a "DVD flipper" i.e halfway through the film you had to get up & turn the disc over to watch the 2nd half of the film-this is no different. Sorry to sound so negative but for 55 pounds buyer beware.

Why are people moaning about these films being spread over two discs when the whole point of the Blu-Ray versions is about ultimate picture and sound quality!! If they were 'compressed' onto a single disc then sacrifices would have to be made! Get with it!!

OK been a fan of LoTR's for ages now and have been looking forward to this release but when i found out what was in the box my heart sank a little. I don't have an issue at all with having each film split over 2 discs, what i do have an issue with is that 6 of the discs i (and so do alot of other people) already have.

I'm talking about the 6 appendices DVD's (yes DVD's NOT Blu Rays) that are the same 6 from the old DVD Extended Edition box sets! Why are these not on Blu Ray! Can't help but think they left them on DVD to
A: cheap out on making new discs
B: bump up the disc count in the box set, coz more is better...right?

In the Alien Anthology Blu Ray they put the 4 DVD special features from the old DVD set on to 1 Blu Ray which was fine as they were not in HD. So why if they are not going to do anything new with the appendices (like have them in HD) don't they just do the same and not try to make out that theres more here than there actualy is.

So out of 15 thats only 6 Blu Rays and the other 9 are DVD's, 6 of which most LoTR fans already own.

 Cannot Wait!

A lot of people have expressed disappointment in this release due to the films being split over two discs each. I understand where they're coming from. I myself complained about this first, until I then realised that it's a good idea.

Yes, Blu-Ray holds a lot of memory, but with each film having two-discs, it gives even more space to make the quality even more impressive. After the Theatrical Blu-Ray release received such negative response, I believe the studio is making sure that doesn't happen again, and I agree with them.

The films: I think The Fellowship of the Ring is the best of the three, followed by The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Not to say that the other two aren't bad -- they're not! They're incredible.

The trilogy is fantastic, and I cannot wait for this release. I previously owned the Extended Editions on DVD, and they were so much better than the Theatrical Films!

 Excited but disappointed

As someone who has followed LOTR for some 35 years in book, radio play (CD), and then DVD, I am naturally highly excited that this is finally comiong to Blu-ray in its extended format (why aren't all films offered in DVD as extended? [HP take note]). However I have to agree with those who feel that this technology should enable viewers to watch this version from a single disc. I do really enjoy all the extra's, but not at the expense of having to pause a film (3 films actually) in the middle to put in the 2nd disc. And at 55 pounds it does leave a slightly bitter taste in the mouth. Having said all this I wouldn't miss the chance for Blu-ray extended LOTR for all the treasure in Smaug's cave!
