One of the most magical, intensely spectacular epic adventures in film history comes alive with these extended editions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray boasting unsurpassed high definition picture and sound. Sound + Vision magazine ranked the 2010 release in their top five Blu-rays of the Year noting that it was one of only two releases to earn five stars for sound and calling it “breathtaking.” Now see and hear the extended trilogy at home the way it was meant to be seen, on Blu-ray Hi-Def.
Based on the length of each extended edition feature film and in order to present each film in the highest possible picture quality, each film is presented on two Blu-ray discs.
The set boasts more than 26 hours of additional content, highlighted by the rare behind-the-scenes documentaries created by Costa Botes, the filmmaker given unprecedented access to the set of each production by Peter Jackson. Costa Botes was able to capture raw and riveting behind-the-scenes film footage. His unique approach to storytelling--allowing the footage to speak for itself--results in an intimate and candid backstage pass to the challenges, preparations and camaraderie that went into shooting the timeless trilogy.
The feature-length documentaries, with more than four and a half hours of footage, focus on a number of complexities and circumstances that tested the filmmakers, cast and crew during the shoot, as well as a look at some of the comical antics and personal moments on the set. The Costa Botes documentaries accompany acclaimed special features by Michael Pellerin from the original extended cut releases to make this the most comprehensive The Lord of the Rings compilation ever.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - The Extended Edition includes a new transfer of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which was remastered from the original 2k digital files, and it all comes in multi-disc elite packaging inside a premium rigid slipcase.

The extras are so good, & we've not managed to plough through them all yet. Loads of behind the scenes footage & info on how all the actors got into characters, how the costumes were made, how the screenplay was written & how The Shire was created. & of course, the extended editions of the films. The Return of the King extended edition is especially good!
But excellent film. Brilliant cast, incredible special effects, a riveting watch.
You need a good few hours to watch them all. Because you always want to watch them all in one go.
One for all to keep on their shelf.
The book has for me better sense and in movies are some real dumb twists of meaning - worst of them - Gandalf falling of the horse when the Nazgûl Boss talks to him - it is complete nonsense and was not in the original movie and of course it is not in the book. It changes the balance of powers and whole role of Gandalf and so - who knows books understands. But it doesn't change the fact, that this extended edition is an excellent source of movie trilogy plus all the bonuses. As I say - the movie itself is the documentary about the book, so one has almost 30 hours of documents :-)
