Since it's still got half a year to go, I guess it's reasonable to start a new thread, especailly since there aren't any specifically for the EE DVD. TheOneRing.Net reports that the EE DVD set will be relieased in December. Here's the report, as quoted from ComingSoon.net: Video Business reports that New Line Home Entertainment will release the extended edition DVD of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in December. That falls outside of the holiday shopping primetime of mid-November--when the past two extended versions of the series, "The Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Two Towers," hit stores. Still, the switch is not expected to hurt sales. Consumers have been aware for months about an upcoming extended take on "Return of the King," given the releases of ones for "Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Two Towers". The trade adds that the extended edition took longer to produce because cast members, now filming new projects, had to be rounded up from all over to complete their commentaries. This is not really news, as I suppose most people who care already know that the set will be released later than its predecessors' timeframe, due to cast scheduling and PJ being away during the awards season. But jeez, still got six more months to wait... sigh... I want it now!!
