'Lord of the Rings' trilogy heads to Blu-ray

But you will have to wait till the spring, my precious

Lord of Rings trilogy heads to Blu ray next spring

The latest blockbuster trilogy to appear on Blu-ray is set to be Peter Jackson's magnificent Lord Of The Rings trilogy which is set to be released on Blu-ray for the first time next spring.

Blu-ray continues to underperform as a format, when compared with the sales and revenue generated by the DVD format at a similar period in its lifecycle, although the big studios continue to support the format.

Tolkien-esque treat

Warner Home Video is certainly planning on giving Tolkien's legions of fans a treat with the Blu-ray special, with The Lord Of The Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy set to arrive in a nine-disc set that features all three original films and over seven hours of extra bonus material.

The set will be released in the UK on April 10, priced £74.99.

It is just a shame that Warner could not have released the Blu-ray discstravagansa in time for Christmas. Ah well. Roll on Easter 2010…
