Lord of the Rings Extended Trilogy (US) in June

Warner Home Video have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy: Extended Edition on 28th June 2011. This 15-disc collection priced at $119.98 SRP includes all three of Peter Jackson’s films in their extended editions complete with more than 26 hours of extras.

Due to the length of the extended editions each film is presented across 2 Blu-ray Discs (to “present each film in the highest possible picture quality”). The set features English 6.1 DTS-HD MA audio and a new transfer of The Fellowship of the Ring which was remastered from the original 2k digital files. Extras include the rare behind-the-scenes documentaries created by Costa Botes that were first seen on the 2006 Limited Edition DVD releases of the films, along with the acclaimed special features by Michael Pellerin from the original extended cut releases.

The set will be packaged in multi-disc elite packaging inside a premium rigid slipcase.
