Warner Home Video announces that they will be releasing The Lord Of The Rings Remastered Deluxe Edition April 6, 2010. This original animated classic from director Ralph Bakshi and producer Saul Zaentz has been remastered with new Dolby 5.1 audio and picture quality and will be distributed as a single disc DVD and Blu-ray combo which features a Blu-ray, DVD and bonus digital copy.

All the magical adventure of the fantasy classic comes to life in Bakshi's animated tale of the enchanted land of Middle-earth – and the brave band of hobbits, heroes and wizards who set out to protect it. When a dangerous and powerful gold ring falls into his hands, a courageous hobbit named Frodo embarks on an epic adventure. Along with the mighty wizard Gandalf and some daring elves, he defends his homeland from the Dark Power who would destroy it.
The Lord Of The Rings Remastered Deluxe Edition also features a never-before-seen, 30-minute in-depth interview with Ralph Bakshi entitled "Forging Through The Darkness: The Ralph Bakshi Vision for The Lord Of The Rings."
