Also included is a box within a box containing yet another bonus DVD, this one devoted to the creation of the Sideshow Weta statue series. Some 24 minutes long, this documentary is introduced by Peter Jackson, who shows us his own extraordinary collection of statues; Jackson and Weta supremo Richard Taylor explain how they insisted that these models were created by the same artists who had worked on the movies, ensuring complete authenticity (the actors themselves are suitably appreciative). Taylor narrates in detail the whole production process. There's also a printed 44-page companion piece specifically devoted to Gollum, showing his evolution from early sketches to sculpted maquette to final on-screen character. --Mark Walker
The extended DVD edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers contains the following:
Discs 1 & 2 (The Feature)
Discs 3 & 4 (The Appendices)
This edition is SO much better than the 2-disk theatrical version, that it is indispensible to the Tolkien fan.
