Lord Of The Rings: Limited Extended Edition Blu-ray on Sale June 28th


Warner Bros. has sent out a press release announcing the release date and special features for the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy.  For starters, only Fellowship of the Ring is getting a restoration, and while the regular-edition Blu-ray release proved that it needed one, it’s weak sauce that Warner Bros. isn’t bothering with cleaning up The Two Towers and Return of the King.  As for the special features, the majority are DVD-only and are being ported straight from the already-released extended editions.  The only new features are behind-the-scenes documentaries from director Costa Botes.  So essentially if you buy the Blu-ray extended editions, you’re getting 15 discs, but if you bought the original extended edition DVDs, you already own two-fifths of this “new” set.  And what’s the price tag on this bad boy? $119.98 SRP.
Hit the jump to check out the list of special features.  The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy hits stores on June 28th. Click here to pre-order it.
