Editor's NotePeter Jackson's epic trilogy is fully told here, with the theatrical versions of all three LORD OF THE RINGS films included. THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING: With THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, director Peter Jackson has achieved a meticulous and captivating adaptation of the first book of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy trilogy. The setting is Middle-earth, a mythological land populated by elves, dwarves, humans, and the gentle, diminutive hobbits upon whom the story centers. One hobbit, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), unexpectedly comes into possession of an ancient magical ring so powerful it invariably corrupts anyone who wears it. In order to prevent the ring's erstwhile owner, the dark lord Sauron, from reclaiming the ring and taking over Middle-earth, a motley band of comrades set out to destroy it in the fires of Mount Doom, where it was forged. Included in the group are Frodo and hobbits Sam (Sean Astin), Merry (Dominic Monoghan), and Pippin (Billy Boyd); the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen); human warriors Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Boromir (Sean Bean); the dwarf Gimli (John Rhys-Davies); the elf Legolas (Orlando Bloom). Along the way, they wage battle with monsters, demons, and Sauron's evil minions, all brought to life by spectacular digital technology.LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS: Picking up where the first film left off, Peter Jackson's THE TWO TOWERS throws the remaining members of the Fellowship into the scattered chaos of Middle-earth, now fully under siege by the forces of Sauron. While Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) journey to the dreaded Mordor, Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) are held captive by orcs, and Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) search for their abducted companions. Soon Frodo and Sam are joined by the sulking and duplicitous Gollum (portrayed by the voice and motion-captured acting of Andy Serkis), who becomes their guide through the barren lands leading to Mount Doom. Meanwhile Merry and Pippin encounter the looming Treebeard (voiced by Rhys-Davies) and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli find themselves in the land of Rohan, accompanied by an old friend. As the tale continues, each scenario becomes more perilous, and fierce battles erupt at both Isengard, home of the treacherous Saruman (Christopher Lee), and the massive Helm's Deep.LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING: THE RETURN OF THE KING, the third and final film in Peter Jackson's THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, finds Middle-earth on the cusp of great change. Weary hobbits Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) venture further into the dark realm of Mordor, guided by the increasingly desperate Gollum (Andy Serkis), the two-faced former owner of the Ring that Frodo must destroy in the fires of Mount Doom. Meanwhile Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) contend with the deranged ruler Denethor (John Noble) at the once-mighty city of Minas Tirith, as Merry (Dominic Monaghan) joins Éowyn (Miranda Otto) and the Riders of Rohan to hold back the forces of Sauron. Amidst the chaos, Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) must rise to his destiny, aided by Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) in assembling allies for a massive battle that will decide the fate of Middle-earth.

Customer Reviews of Lord of the Rings-Trilogy Extended Edition (Blu-ray)
Everything you want to know or care to know about the trilogy. Blu-Ray looks noticeably clearer than DVD version and the sound is magnificent. Enjoy!
These movies look great on blu ray! Definately get the entire set if you enjoyed the books. There is even an extended version, although the movies are already pretty long as it is. Some decent bonus features make this a great value if you want all three movies.

The Complete Package4/12/2012
My venture into Blu-ray started with this collection, and I am not disappointed. It really brings this epic to life. Having the digital copy is a nice plus too!
I think Peter Jackson did a great job with these movies. Can't wait for the hobbit
Love these movies and so happy to own them on bluray =) There are some cons however. Each movie is split into two discs so you have to change them mid movie. Now its not a big deal if you are watching them in full since each movie is about 4 hrs+ (extended) so a break is nice. But if you just wanna watch certain scenes it gets very annoying. Also there is no option to watch it without the extra scenes which is so stupid. Sometimes I dont wanna watch all the friggin extra scenes. Another big con to me was that it is widescreen. Like REALLY widescreen. Its definitely the smallest widescreen ive ever seen. On my 42" lcd the display of the movie is only about 32'-36 of the screen. Its irrating how little of my big screen tv the display takes up. I pretty much need a 52"+ tv to view it comfortably. Love it and eventually got past theses issues . Otherwise great
