First released in late 2020, The Hobbit 4K trilogy steelbook release was a sell-out smash hit.

Now, Zavvi have managed to secure additional copies thanks to a new production run by Warner Bros, and these will be available to pre-order, for everyone, from around 9am UK time on Thursday February 4th, so ignore the ‘sold out’ notice until then.

As a reminder, the set includes both the Theatrical and Extended Cuts of all three films, but other than that these will be bare bones 4K-only releases (no Blu-rays included). All three films are newly remastered in 4K, with stunning 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 later in 2021, so if extras are your thing, that’s worth knowing.

Pre-order: Zavvi

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™.

This three-film SteelBook set includes:

  • The Hobbit Theatrical and Extended Edition trilogy on stunning 4K Ultra HD
  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies across 6 Discs
  • Three individual SteelBooks showcasing unique artwork, housed in a premium SteelBook case

    Do we know when the LOTR steel book stock from zavvi is being released? I put in a ‘pre-order’ but it doesn’t say the release date so not sure when I can expect dispatch.
