‘Middle Earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition’ 4K Release Date and Pre-Order

Middle Earth Ultimate Collector's Edition 4K Release Date

Last year when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit Trilogy on 4K Ultra HD, they promised a more complete box set in 2021. That set, the Middle Earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition, has a release date, details and pre-order at Amazon.

This lavish 31-disc set is timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the movie that started it all, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. It has an October 26th, 2021 release date and carries a price of $239.99, though that could drop between now and release.

Pre-order Middle Earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition 4K Blu-ray set at Amazon.

Last year’s two 4K trilogies with remastered 4K and Blu-ray editions of the theatrical and director’s cut of all 6 Peter Jackson Middle Earth films carry forward into this new box set. The 4K presentations include HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.

What’s new starts with a puzzle box package that includes a “64-page booklet featuring costumes, photography and production notes from the film, and art cards featuring travel posters and images from iconic locations throughout Middle-earth including The Shire, Lake-Town, Erebor, Anduin, Rohan, Minas Trith, and Rivendell.”

Additionally, a total of five all-new bonus features have been included in the Middle Earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition box set. What’s not included are legacy bonus features from past Blu-ray releases, so that door remains open for an even bigger set should Warner Bros. choose to revisit Peter Jackson’s films down the road.
