We're still waiting on the full details from Warner Bros. on the LOTR and Hobbit 4K Blu-ray sets, so stay tuned. Presumably, there won't be any new bonus content here, but if you can stand to wait past the holidays, an Ultimate Collector's Edition is on the way for Summer 2021 that will include all six LOTR and The Hobbit films in 4K with new bonus content. Additional information will be added when it becomes available.
