The Lord of the Rings trilogy has received the 4K treatment from Peter Jackson.

The filmmaker explained the process in a new featurette included in the box set, narrating that he and his team of experts “tweaked” the franchise’s individual colors to standardize the hues. “It was interesting going back and revisiting these films because I realized how inconsistent they were, and that’s really due to the way in which The Lord of the Rings trilogy was shot first about 20 years ago,” Jackson said.

He continued, “The Lord of the Rings was shot on 35mm. The color timing was done in an old-fashioned, photo mechanical way for the first Lord of the Rings movie. Then we switched to digital color timing for the 35mm for the next two. Being able to tweak individual colors is the sort of thing we just couldn’t do 20 years ago, so it’s fun to have all of the toys now.”

Earlier this year, the LOTR cast held a virtual reunion and reenacted some of the franchise’s most iconic scenes, including Arwen’s Elvish and Sam’s message of hope for Frodo.

Elsewhere in entertainment, the mysterious monolith in Romania has also disappeared.
