The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended Edition) is Available for Pre-order! Details Revealed!

With the Star Wars Saga on it's way to Blu-ray and the Indiana Jones movies in the works, everything is finally coming to high definition and now we have this to look forward to!  While the Lord of the Rings Trilogy has already been released on Blu-ray, see my reviews here, here, and here, they were only the theatrical editions which had a lot less story included.  I've always preferred the extended editions, and I'm happy to report that the extended edition box set is available to pre-order right now from Amazon.com!  We also have an early look at what will be included but I’m sure more details will emerge once the release date comes closer.  As always, we will keep you informed when that happens.
