LOTR:FOTR Four-DVD set extras announced

According to this
Cinescape article
, the extras for the four-DVD
Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
release scheduled for November have been decided and
announced. The article also says that it’s been
determined that the release will include the 208
minute cut of the film. (There’s a cut of the film
that’s about half an hour longer than that which was
also a possibility.) When a firm release date is
available, I’ll let you know.

    About that extra half-hour
    So when’s the version with the whole thing gonna come out? Or do we have to wait for the 20-disc boxed set of all 3 movies before we get to see all of it? Personally, I like long movies, especially for book adaptations. And even more especially for adaptations of such involved books. And while the commentaries are nice, I would much rather see the added footage than see 3 different versions of “The making of The Lord of the Rings.”

    Isn’t 208 min the long version?
    I thought the original release was about three hours long, so 208 min would add about 28.
    The article linked to seems to indicate this is a new, longer version as well.

      The theatrical release is about 180
      minutes. Peter Jackson had two other cuts, and he wasn’t
      sure if he’d use the 208 minute cut or the ~240 minute cut
      for the Special Extended Version on the four disk DVD
      release.
