This one caught me by complete surprise. Well I guess not complete since we’re bound to be drowned in all things Tolkienesqe with LOTR due out this December.

At any rate, those of you (like myself) that have fond memories of Rankin-Bass’ The Hobbit and The Return of the King, go get it!

Fans of the Ralph Bakshi version shouldn’t feel put off. It’s coming out tomorrow as well.

If you already have these on video, save your money…there doesn’t appear to be any bonus materials on any of these discs.
