This Special Extended Edition of The Lord of the Rings: \"The Fellowship of the Ring\"
Is a unique version of the film, specially created for this DVD.
With no constraints on the film\'s running time, director Peter Jackson extended the movie
by more than 30 minutes - with more character development, more humour, more story,
more of J.R.R. Tolkien\'s world.
But rather than simply inserting deleted scenes, Jackson approached this Extended Edition
as if he were creating a whole new version of the film. He and the editor, John Gilbert,
carefully evaluated material to be integrated into the film, and then worked to bring each
scene up to the same polish as the rest of the feature - visual effects were completed,
dialogue was recorded, and sound affects were created.
To make sure all of the scenes flowed, Howard Shore composed and recorded a new score with
the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
The result is an opportunity for fans of the book to see a cherished world brought to life
in even greater detail, and for those new to the legend to gain a deeper appreciation of
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
