TTT : two extended DVD sets

Lord of the Rings

Well, I got my edition of the Special DVD Edition of The Two Towers, and spent a lovely evening enjoying the second part of the LotR trilogy. One week after the release of this DVD edition (very clever), more details have been anounced of the Extended DVD editions. There will be, unlike with the FotR DVD editions, *two* Special Extended Editions :

1. The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers Platinum Series Special Extended DVD Edition.

  • Discs 1-2: The Feature (208 mins)- A new version of the second installment in the epic trilogy! The film includes over 40 minutes of never-before-seen footage incorporated into the film, made especially for this video release. Four audio commentaries by director and writers, the design team, the production team and the cast featuring more than 30 participants including Peter Jackson, Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Orlando Bloom and Academy Award winners Richard Taylor, Howard Shore, Randy Cook and many more.
  • Discs 3-4: The Appendices

    Two discs with hours of original content including multiple documentaries and design/photo galleries with thousands of images to give viewers an in depth behind-the-scenes look at The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

2. The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers Collector's DVD Gift Set

The following contents will be presented in packaging illustrated by famed artist, Alan Lee :

  • 4-disc Platinum Series Special Extended DVD Edition of The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.
