  Extended ROTK on sale in December
Updated 28 September 2004, 09.54

The final Rings DVD comes out in December
Lord of the Rings fans won't be bored at Christmas as the long version of the final film is released on 14 December.

Director Peter Jackson has added 50 minutes of extra scenes to the film, making the extended Return of the King more than four hours long!

The longer version promises the return of Saruman, the mouth of Sauron and a cameo appearance from Jackson himself.

The film comes on two discs or videos and the DVD version has two more discs full of extra features too.

There is also a special collector's DVD set that comes with a statue of Minis Tirith, although that is twice the price of the ordinary set, which will sell for around $40 (22) in the US.

The film won 11 Oscars earlier this year and the version released in cinemas has been out on DVD and VHS for months.

Jackson has now started work on his next film, a new version of giant gorilla story King Kong.
