LOTR DVD Easter Eggs

November 26, 2003 at 8:24 pm by xoanon  - 

Many people have asked us about easter eggs on the LOTR DVDs. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the concept of ‘easter eggs’, think of them as hidden gems on your DVD that you would not be able to find with regular viewing.

Thanks to one of my favorite websites dvdeastereggs.com we’ve compiled a list of DVD eggs according to release date and region. Take a look!

***********

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (Theatrical Edition)
REGION 1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories

Egg: DVD Credits

Highlight Play Movie, then press up and you will have the New Line logo highlighted. Press enter, and you’ll have DVD credits.

***********

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (Extended Edition)
REGION 1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories

Egg: TTT Trailer

To access The Two Towers sneak peek trailer that was shown briefly in theaters at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring, go to the last page of the scene selections menu area and select the number “48″ on the far right-hand side of the screen. Then navigate “down” to reveal a hidden Two Towers symbol. Press “Enter”.

Egg: MTV Spoof

To find this one, go into the Scene Selection menu on disc one, and head to the final page where you’ll find the real Council of Elrond scene. Highlight that scene and press “down” to find an image of the Ring. Press enter to view the entire clip from MTV complete with an introduction from Peter Jackson.

Egg: DVD Credits

From the Main Menu of Disc Four, use your down arrow to move down to highlight the ornament at the bottom center of the screen. Selecting this will give you a limited version of the DVD credits.

***********

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (Extended Edition)
REGION 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East

Egg: MTV spoof

On Disc 1 go to Scene selection screen. Highlight Scene 27 “The Council of Elrond”. Press down to highlight image of The Ring. Press enter to view the clip.

Egg: Two Towers Trailer

To access ‘The Two Towers’ trailer, follow the instructions given for the R2 discs elsewhere on this site. The MTV spoof will not, however, appear on the set issued by EiV in the United Kingdom. This is because the spoof would have casued the disc to have a rating which is higher than the ‘PG’ given to the film and all the other elements on the DVDs. Since all DVDs are classified by the British Board of Film Classification overall with regard to the ‘highest categorised element’, EiV were not willing to put this on the disc, risk a higher classification and prejudice sales. This will not be the case with LOTR:FOTR R2 discs issued elsewhere in the region.

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (Extended Edition)
REGION 4: Australia, New Zealand, Central and South Americ

Edd: Two Towers Trailer
