The epic Middle Earth “The Lord of The Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies are getting UK 4K releases in November
After months of rumours, it’s now confirmed that the two Middle Earth trilogies are finally coming to 4K on November 30th.
For each trilogy you’ll be able to choose from standard and steelbook releases, and the sets will include both the Theatrical and Extended Cuts of all six films (with the Lord of The Rings Extended Cuts across 2 discs each), but other than that these will be bare bones 4K-only releases (no Blu-rays included). All six films are newly remastered in 4K, with Dolby Atmos audio.
Warners are planning a much more extravagant 4K Middle-earth Ultimate Collectors’ Edition featuring both versions of all six films, along with new bonus content, the existing Blu-ray discs of The Hobbit Trilogy, and newly remastered Blu-ray discs of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, for release in summer 2021, so if extras are your thing, that’s worth knowing.
Pre-orders are live now, and we’ll add more links as we get them.
- The Lord of The Rings Trilogy:
- The Hobbit Trilogy:
Return to the stunning locations and epic adventures in Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth™ saga THE HOBBIT™ and THE LORD OF THE RINGS™. Now more stunning than ever before, the films have been beautifully remastered in 4K UHD, under the supervision of Director Peter Jackson and restored by Park Road Post.
From director Peter Jackson, rediscover the stunning locations and epic adventures in the greatest film saga of all time. The critically acclaimed series of six films encompasses The Hobbit™ and The Lord of the Rings™ trilogies and tells the mythic tales of an ancient world called Middle-earth™: A world of Elves, Dwarves, Wizards, Humans and Hobbits in a constant struggle against the evil forces of the Dark Lord Sauron and his army of Goblins and Orcs – a world of quests, Dragons, treasures and a legendary final battle for the future of Middle-earth™ itself.
Peter Jackson’s epic adventure through J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth™ begins with The Hobbit™ trilogy as Bilbo Baggins is swept into an unexpected journey. Bilbo, the Wizard Gandalf and 13 Dwarves – led by Thorin Oakenshield – journey to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Along the way, Bilbo must fight for his life, and Dwarves, Elves and Men must unite or risk being destroyed. Meanwhile, a dark power rises again and finds its way back to Middle-earth™.
The adventure continues with THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ trilogy when, with the help of the Fellowship of the Ring, Bilbo Baggin’s nephew, Frodo, embarks on a perilous mission to destroy the One Ring™ and defeat the Dark Lord Sauron and his forces. Soon, the Fellowship is broken, and while the other members fight off the evil spreading through Middle-earth™, Frodo and his friend Samwise must continue their dangerous mission, with a guide they cannot trust, toward the fires of Mount Doom as the final battle for Middle-earth™ begins.
