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 an intimate, never-before-seen documentary created by Costa Botes, the all-access filmmaker commissioned by Peter Jackson.

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. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy will forever be revered as one of the most thrilling epic adventures in motion picture history. Together, the Trilogy garnered 17 Academy Awards® and generated more than 1 billion dollars in domestic box office. Based on the bestselling novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy chronicles the struggles of good versus evil with fantastical special effects and a strong emotional center.
