Upgraded Rings Web Site Coming

2:37pm 1-Dec-99

New Line Cinema will unveil an upgraded, multimedia-heavy Lord of the Rings Web site in mid-December that will allow fans a glimpse at the production of the movie trilogy. The new Web site will feature video commentary by director Peter Jackson, images from the New Zealand shooting location, and interviews with cast and crew members, New Line spokeswoman Wendy Rutherford told SCI FI Wire.

The studio also plans to release a Lord of the Rings-themed Web browser that will allow fans to access special features of the site. “It’ll be better than the Star Wars: Episode I Web site,” Rutherford said.
