'Lord of the Rings' fans rejoice: The Extended Editions are finally available on Blu-ray! Director Peter Jackson's epic, three-part adaptation of the classic J.R.R. Tolkien Middle-earth tale is even more comprehensive with this 15-disc must-have set, containing a treasure trove of more than 26 hours of additional content, including the rare, behind-the-scenes documentaries by Costa Botes with over four-and-a-half hours of footage chronicling the comic antics, personal moments and hardships of making movie fantasy history.
