The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - New R1 Limited Edition sets in August

New Line Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Lord of the Rings Limited Edition DVDs for 29th August 2006. Each of the films in the acclaimed trilogy will be presented in a two disc set with a behind-the-scenes documentary exclusive to each limited edition. Disc one presents both the Special Extended Edition and the Theatrical Edition of the film through seamless branching, while disc two features an intimate, never-before-seen documentary created by Costa Botes, the all-access filmmaker commissioned by Peter Jackson. With more than five hours of captivating, never-before-released footage, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King Limited Edition DVDs are each available priced at $28.98 SRP.

Given unprecedented access to the set of each production, Costa Botes was able to capture some of the most raw and riveting behind-the-scenes film footage to date. His unique approach to storytelling – allowing the footage to speak for itself – results in one of the most intimate and candid backstage passes to the challenges, preparations and camaraderie that went into shooting one of the greatest cinematic adventures of all time. The feature-length documentaries, with more than 300 minutes of never-before-available footage, focus on a number of complexities and circumstances that test 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.
