For the First-Time Ever, the Theatrical and Extended Versions of the Award Winning Motion Picture Trilogy Will Be Featured on One Disc in Three Separate Collectors Editions

For a limited time, experience a new look at Middle-earth as The Lord of the Rings Limited Edition DVDs arrive on August 29, 2006, in three separate collectors editions from New Line Home Entertainment. A must-have for every The Lord of the Rings enthusiast, each of the Academy Award-winning films 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 a 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 Limited Edition, The Two Towers Limited Edition and The Return of the King Limited Edition are each available at a $28.98 Suggested Retail Price.

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.
