Il 4 ottobre 2016 il cofanetto con le due trilogie di Peter Jacskon


Sarà forse quello che tutti gli appassionati delle trilogie cinematografiche di Peter Jackson sognavano? Forse no, come spiego alla fine di quest'articolo, ma il prossimo 4 ottobre 2016 arriverà un cofanetto special per chi ha amato le due pluripremiate trilogie. Infatti sul sito Amazon è apparsa l'annuncio di vendita di questo cofanetto che contiene assieme le due trilogie con una serie di nuovi filmati e non solo. Il prezzo dovrebbe essere in prevendita di 800 dollari. Un prezzo non proprio economico, se si considera che gli appassionati della saga cinematografica dispongono già di tutte le svariate edizione, cinema, deluxe, estesa, prodotte in questi lunghissimi anni.

Ma Peter Jackson è stato coinvolto?
(Aggiornamento del 24 agosto 2016)

A quanto pare no se, contattato da TheOneRing.net ha dichiarato:
La Warner avrebbe dovuto accedere ai negativi originali, digitalizzare i blooper, le scene tagliate e le sequenze aggiuntive. Si rifiutarono di farlo, il che rese il piano mio e di Michael Pellerin per realizzare dei documentari esaustivi impossibile da produrre. Né io né Michael siamo stati coinvolti in questa uscita. Forse la Warner deciderà di sostenere il nostro documentario in occasione del 25esimo anniversario, ci piacerebbe davvero farlo prima o poi.
[“In addition there was the added difficulty of Warners needing to access the original negative and scan the outtakes, bloopers, and additional sequences. They declined to do this, which made Michael Pellerin and my original plans for the comprehensive documentary we hoped to produce for this box set, impossible to produce. Neither Michael nor myself are therefore involved in this release. Maybe Warners will support our planned documentary for the 25th anniversary, because we would love to make it one day.”]

Infatti, nel 2014 Peter Jackson propose alla Warner un cofanetto che contenesse tutto il materiale inedito girato durante quella meravigliosa esperienza. Il progetto, che vedeva coinvolto per l’appunto il produttore delle Appnedici e dei contenuti speciali nelle edizione estese Michael Pellerin, si vide opporre un diniego. Ergo, per vedere e, magari, avere qualcosa di davvero speciale si deve aspettare ancora dieci anni!
