'The Lord of the Rings Trilogy' Blu-ray Delayed

Posted Wed Sep 9, 2009 at 12:00 PM PDT by

New Line/Warner has delayed 'The Lord of the Rings Trilogy' originally slated to hit Blu-ray this November.

The 7-disc set scheduled for November 3 has been removed from the slate and will now be released sometime in 2010 (likely in the Spring).

Warner has not provided any reasons for the delay, however there is some speculation that the studio doesn't want the title to "get lost in the crowd" from their other high profile releases according to reports from The Digital Bits.
