So in browsing TheOneRing.net I came upon an interesting little article regarding the running time of the eventual Extended Edition DVD of The Return og the King. Apparently it will be in excess of 4 hours and 50 minutes. TheOneRing.net article... I also found on article on a Danish website that saus the exact same thing, so if anybody speaks Danish.... Danish article... Here's for hoping.... I'd love to see a version of ROTK that closely follows the book. In fact, as the cast and crew will be returning to New Zealand next year for more filming (presumably for the ROTK:EE) I would love to see them film extra scenes and release a mammoth 18 hour version of the film, that includes things that were cut out, like Tom Bombadil, The Scouring of the Shire, etc.
