Well apparently there's an edition with additional bonus content coming out next summer. Not seeing what will be in it yet so can't say if it'll be worth it based on that. For me, I just want the movies looking extra purty on my future shiny new TV. (In reality I don't expect I'll upgrade for another year or so, but knowing these will be available soon certainly makes it harder to resist the temptation....)

I was just looking at my "Official Movie Guide", a book that came out before the first movie was released. There's a picture in it that looks like it's from a scene that didn't make it into either the theatrical or extended version. It shows Galadriel trying to comfort Arwen, putting her hand on Arwen's shoulder as Arwen looks rather distraught.

Does anyone have any background info on this? I can scan and post the picture, if you like...

Says it's a deleted scene but looking for more info.

That's the one!

As far as I can remember, the two of them were never on screen together anywhere in the movie.

So I found some reference but I don't know how authoritative it is - that it was a deleted scene somehow connected to the Arwen-at-Helms-Deep scene that was cut.

Okay, I'm trying to find a silly little animated video that was done around the time the Two Towers came out, which shows the Elves marching into Helm's Deep. The Elves are then replaced with racoons dancing to techno pop music.

Anyone still have a link to that video? :horse:

I think it was the badgers, not racoons?
