Get The Lord Of The Rings Extended Editions In Digital HD For $7 Each Today

Here's a great way to spend your weekend.


With another weekend of pandemic lockdown ahead of us, you might be wondering what games or movies you'll distract and entertain yourself with this time. Let me introduce you to your weekend plans: The Lord of the Rings extended edition trilogy is discounted to a great price right now on Amazon Prime Video, which is available for all Prime members. Normally $17 each, you can currently own each LOTR film in digital HD for just $7 each. Considering the Blu-ray extended edition box set is currently selling for $55 on Amazon, this is an excellent deal if you've been in the mood for a rewatch.

It's not clear how long this deal will be available, so it's worth taking advantage of ASAP. You can see the discounts on The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King on Prime Video below and add the movies to your Prime Video account now.

If you only saw The Lord of the Rings in theaters and aren't familiar with the extended editions of these films, you're in for a real treat. Each extended edition adds about 30 to 50 minutes of additional footage as well as new editing, special effects, and music. In total, it'll take you over 11 hours to watch the entire extended trilogy.

Rewatching the original trilogy is a great way to get your LOTR fix while we wait on Amazon's highly anticipated Lord of the Rings TV show, which is set before the events of trilogy during the Second Age of Middle Earth.
