The “Special Extended DVD Edition” is contained in a four-disc set with
two discs containing the film, and two discs with more than six hours of added
content, produced specifically for the DVD. These extras will plunge the viewer
into the complex landscape of Middle-earth, and reveal how Peter Jackson and his
team of skilled artists and technicians created a painstakingly beautiful and
faithful re-creation of Tolkien's world.
Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings: The
Fellowship of the Ring is an epic adventure of good against evil, the power of
friendship and individual courage. The saga centers around an unassuming Hobbit
named Frodo Baggins who inherits a Ring that would give a dark and powerful lord
the power to enslave the world. With a loyal fellowship of elves, dwarves, men
and a wizard, Frodo embarks on a heroic quest to destroy the One Ring and pave
the way for the emergence of mankind.
