The Lord of the Rings trilogy is finally making it’s way onto Blu-ray. However, there is only one problem.
From The Digital Bits:
Sources close to director Peter Jackson have informed me that he’s saving the extended editions of the films for an “ultimate” box set release closer to the debut of the new Hobbit films – that’s why these BDs are set to be theatrical only…
…I’ve officially confirmed with the studio that this initial Blu-ray release is real and it’s coming before the end of this year, but I’m told it won’t be officially announced for another few months yet.
So we can either experience the epic trilogy in Blu-ray form this year, or we can wait another few years (2012) for the extended editions. Personally, i’ll probably play their damn game and buy both.
