It's about damn time we find out when we can expect Peter Jackson's masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, on Blu-ray!
April 6th 2010!
We've still gotta a few months to wait, but at least we have a date to set our sights on. I haven't watched the trilogy in the last couple of years because I have been waiting to see it on Blu-ray, and I can't wait!
It sounds like there won't be anything new to add to the special features on this disc set. Just that it will be in full 1080p HD on blu-ray.
Video Business reports that the nine-disc set will contain the original theatrical versions of the three Peter Jackson-directed Rings films along with more than seven hours of special features. The supplemental package will contain mostly special features that were on the various DVD versions of the movies, including featurettes that were originally on LordoftheRings.net. However, the Blu-ray versions will offer high-def trailers.
The set also will include digital copies of each film and have BD Live access.
Unfortunately the extended versions of the films will be showing up on Blu-ray at a later date.
Also getting its Blu-ray debut on April 6 is the 1978 animated adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings" directed by Ralph Bakshi.
