    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
    Full specs and box art for the two-disc Fellowship release, as well as new information on the four-disc special edition and the Gift Set!

    March 26, 2002 - New Line Cinema just announced the full specs and release date for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring on DVD. The DVD will street on August 6 for a MSRP of $29.99 and will hold the following features in a two-disc set:


    Three behind-the-scenes featurettes:
    -"Welcome to Middle-earth" (an in-store special shown by Houghton Mifflin).
    -"The Quest for the Ring" (30-minute special originally shown on the FOX Network).
    -"A Passage to Middle-earth" (60-minute special originally shown on the SCI-FI Channel).

    15 featurettes originally created for lordoftherings.net. These take you deep inside Middle Earth and include interviews with cast members Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Liv Tyler as well as members of the crew. Each one originally was shown as a streaming video or a quicktime file, so now you have them in the form of high-quality video.

    Exclusive 10-minute behind-the-scenes preview of the next The Lord of the Rings theatrical release, The Two Towers.

    Enya's "May It Be" music video.

    An inside look at the Special Extended DVD Edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring that streets on November 12, 2002.

    Preview of Electronic Arts' video game, The Two Towers.

    3D Animated Menus (see below).

    DVD ROM Features that lead you to exclusive online content.

    Audio will be in Dolby Digital EX (sorry DTS fans).

    Releasing November 12, the 4-disc Special Extended Edition contains an additional 30 minutes of the film not seen in the theatrical version.

    Some of the additional scenes include:

    More time with the Hobbits including a musical number. Extra scene further underscores the Hobbits sense of isolation and the growing realization that they can't ignore the outside world for much longer.

    Frodo and Sam POV watching the elves going to the "Undying Land"

    When the Hobbits are sleeping, Frodo is awakened by Aragorn's signing of an elvish tune that foreshadow's his relationship with Arwen

    More at Rivendell with Aragorn

    More on the departure of the Fellowship from Rivendel

    More in the Mines before the cave troll fight

    Gifting scene ... as the Fellowship leaves, Galadriel gives them each a personalized gift that will end up being critical to their future. Legolas gets a special bow, Sam gets some elvin rope that comes in handy when he faces a giant spider in The Two Towers, and a touching moment between Gimli and Galadriel.

    The extended edition will likely receive an "R"-rating , not due to excessive gore but about 30 seconds of extra violence in the Battle of Amon Hen.

    Two discs contain the film and the remaining two discs add up to more than six hours of additional content. Among the content will be Peter Jackson's commentary. More details to come on the exact nature of the extras content as New Line is still finalizing the details.

    Finally, there is an awesome Collector's DVD Gift Set also streeting on November 12 that looks amazing. It is a huge, gorgeous box designed by the legendary Alan Lee. The gift set contains the 4-disc version, two bookend statuettes by sculptor Sideshow Weta, the National Geographic "Beyond The Movie" DVD, and several collectible Decipher game cards. No word on price as of this writing. We'll update as we receive the info.

    Here is the box art for both the widescreen and fullscreen two-disc sets (click for larger versions):

    Yeah right ;)



    I'm not keen on the film being on 2 discs.

    Can 3 and a half hours not fit on one disc?

    I always thought you could get much more than that on DVD.

    You can get a lot on DVD, but you gotta remember that movies, sounds and the quality of the image and sound we're talking about takes up a HECK of a lot of space...

    Rip off.


    Why is it a rip-off? You don't have to buy it.. and if you consider it a rip off just wait til November...

    Re: Alpha's comment about one disc for the film...

    I'm no technical expert when it comes to DVD (where's Gav when you need him?!) but I agree it can most probably be done... but at what cost?

    Would we have to sacrifice some of the sound detail, the picture quality to get it onto one disc?
    Thank you but no thank you!

    I'm sure that the powers that be would have given long thought to this and decided that two discs will have to do... that and it gives you an oppurtunity for a loo break! ;)

    Okay - TMI I know but these things are important! :D
