RE: [TolkienDiscussions] Re: Hobbit on Blu-Ray
- Thanks Ty
Of course, with LOTR, they cut great chunks of the book out of the
theatrical release (long-time members of this group will remember the howls
of rage at the loss of Tom Bombadil)
With the Hobbit, the opposite is true!

Well, I heard from my movie guy- apparently there are no immediate plans
for a deluxe set a'la LotR anytime soon- the rumor is they will wait until
the last film in 2015 & then release a big box set. So apparently the
dvd/blu ray combo pack (which does contain some extras) is it for now. As
someone who does not own a blu-ray player, I hope the extras are on dvd...

- I see no one has mentioned using the secret code which came inside
the DVD box to tune in to the "live" thing on-line with Peter Jackson
on the 24th of last month (in the Western Hemisphere: he pointed out
at the start it was 0700 on the 25th where he is).
. . . ronn! :)

DVD labeled "Special Features" which I haven't watched yet (on the
wrapper it says "Includes 10 Production Videos) . . .
