Yesterday we reported that Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy would finally be released on Blu-ray in April. Now we have more details about the release, including photos, a breakdown of the disc contents, and even a trailer.

Am I the only one disappointed that the Blu-ray set is only going to include the theatrical versions? I thought one of the selling points of Blu-ray was the advanced branching options which would allow us to fit both theatrical and directors cut features on one disc in high definition. I’m guessing that Warner Bros is planning a double dip, and that the director’s cut ultimate set will be held off until The Hobbit hits theaters.

Update: You can preorder the Blu-ray set now on Amazon for $69.99.
