Lord of the Ring DVD's

Just curious. I had read part of a thread here mentioning that the Fellowship of the Ring regular and extended version had their differences. I had thought the extended contained all of the regular movie, plus more. However, I read here (from a post I can't find) that the regular edition had more of an intro with Bilbo whereas the extended didn't. I tried looking around on yahoo for a comparison without any success, so I've decided to ask here. While it's possible this questions come up before and I've failed to find it, feel free to supply a link if you have one handy. Otherwise, I'd appreciate hearing it. This question I guess can also encompass The Two Towers as well. But, since the extended edition isn't out yet it may be more difficult to tell. Thanks in advance!

The extended edition does have all of the regular edition in it with and extra 30 min or so. Its the extended edition that includes more of Bilbo in the opening scenes. It includes him beginning to write his book "Here and Back Again".

CWhippy - Actually, the extended edition is a re-edit that actually cuts some of the material that appeared in the theatrical edition. The opening, for example, is vastly different in the EE, and lacking some of the scenes from the theatrical.

another reason to get both dvd's. damn jackson and his double dipping! and we all complained about greedo shooting first! We should complain about the opening being altered.. it's like a different movie now!

More specifically, it's lacking some of the shots used in the theatrical cut. Much of the dialog between Gandalf and Frodo while riding through Hobbiton is replaced by Bilbo's voiceover. Bilbo says many of the same lines, plus a great deal more.

Welcome to the forum! Searching for "extended" in titles only in this forum turned up many threads, one of them being the following:


If that thread doesn't help, try the other threads that the search turns up. Closing duplicate.
