THE RETURN OF THE DVD
Unlike past years, the end of 2004 won't see a Lord of the Rings film... but we WILL be seeing the Extended Edition Set DVD of the Return of the King!
Like the previous two sets, the ROTK:EE set will include additional scenes, featurettes and other odds and ends enough to satisfy any movie fan. According to Ain't It Cool News, the extended version will have an additional 58 minutes of new, unseen footage! ALMOST AN HOUR MORE ROTK!!!
The extra scenes will include among others a wizard's duel between Gandalf and Saruman at Orthanc; the courtship of Eowyn by Faramir at the Houses of Healing, a nice scene between Pippin and Faramir involving Pippin's Gondorian armor; more Paths of the Dead, the Mouth of Sauron, Eowyin versus Gothmog (the orc general with the marshmallow head) and MORE.
It would have been great if the ROTK theatrical dvd had a preview of the EE... perhaps they'll release some sort of ad or preview online. Anyway, it sounds awesome... November can't come fast enough.
