The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Theatrical Edition) on Blue-ray

Warner Bros has announced this week (source: theonering.net ) that The Lord of the Rings Trilogy will be available on Blue-ray from April 2010. The nine-disc set (six-disc set in Europe ?) will take you through rich, robust colors and crisp sound that can only experienced on Blue-ray Disc. The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy will include digital copies of each film on three separate discs and the set will also be BD-Live enabled, offering exciting new interactive possibilities. At the moment there is still some confusion among LOTR fans as this Lord of the Rings Blue-ray will be apparently the 'Theatrical Edition' and not the much loved full 'Extended Edition'. The box will retail at about $ 69.99 (Amazon.com) /£ 49.98 (Amazon.uk). Amazing how time flies, I still remember the days when the Lord of the Rings Trilogy was available on video-tape :p I think I am getting old :)
